Milwaukee Hybrid Protection Ratings
EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of gloves used for safety and protection. It determines the gloves' performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring the fabric's abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.
The EN 388 cut resistance test uses a single sharp implement to repeatedly pressure a glove in order to determine the amount of force required to cause visible and functional damage.
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 2 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |

Suitable Applications for Milwaukee 4932471912 Gloves
Milwaukee SMARTSWIPE Hybrid Leather Safety Gloves have a wide scope for both professional and personal application. Please view the list below for a few examples:
What Does SMARTSWIPE Technology Do?
The use of digital devices in the workplace is only going to increase. SMARTSWIPE Technology is an incredibly dynamic and innovative inclusion that solves a common problem for forward thinking tradesmen. If you're holding something, you can simply use the knuckle pad to select, swipe or scroll to the next stage of your digital plans, notes or diagram.
Best of Both Worlds
Milwaukee Hybrid Leather Safety Gloves do just what they say. They offer hybrid leather protection, using natural, dual-layer leather at the palm to reinforce grip strength and synthetic leather as a more dynamic, long-lasting backing fabric that guards the hand against splashing, water and sunlight.
What Is a Reinforced Palm?
Handling difficult and heavy tools and equipment may seem a breeze at first, but over time it will cause damage and strain in your hands. Milwaukee Hybrid Gloves reinforce the glove palm with layers of extra leather to minimise the shock, impact and contact force commonly caused by tools and equipment handling.
Milwaukee Hybrid Gloves offer some level of mechanical workplace hazard protection against abrasions, cuts, punctures and tearing. They are ideal for construction, building and carpentry applications, as their reinforced leather foundation fabric is excellent at guarding the hand against scuffs, scratches and minor impact.
Isn't Synthetic Leather Weak?
This is a common misconception. In fact, synthetic leather has a number of benefits when used as a backing fabric. Firstly, it is inherently immune to sun-bleaching, cracking and staining. Secondly, it is more water repellent than natural leather. Last but not least, synthetic leather is cruelty free, making it ideal for those looking to minimise their environmental impact.
Dynamic and Customisable Wrist Fastening
A lot of gloves use a one-size-fits-all knitted cuff that simply hugs the wrist. If this style of cuff doesn't fit perfectly, there's not much you can do. With their Hybrid Leather Gloves, Milwaukee have included a Velcro wrist strap, allowing you to customise how loose or tight you like your gloves.
