MTC Public Order Gloves

The MTC Public Order Gloves are sold as a pair and have been designed to offer the ultimate in protection and comfort and are made to withstand the toughest conditions faced by police officers.

The MTC Public Order Gloves have a gauntlet length outer shell which is made from revolutionary PYROHIDE grain leather. Internal high energy impact resistant closed cell expanded foam padding is located strategically across the back of the hand, along each finger and along the back of the thumb which offers protection without adversely affecting fit and dexterity. 

The MTC Public Order Gloves protect the palm with a self leather overlay full palm and finger patches which also help to extend the life expectancy of the glove. The elasticated wrist ensures a tight fitting closure over the top of a tunic and the cut resistance comes from a highly advanced seamless knitted lining made from Kevlar with glass-fibre. This lining is also plated with a Viloft yarn offering active perspiration technology which wicks away moisture from the hand.

Features of the MTC Public Order Gloves

  • Winning combination of protection, dexterity and comfort.
  • Outer shell is was developed originally for fire-fighters but now used wherever there is a risk of injury through heat and flame
  • Offers resistance to fire, heat, water, salt water, liquid chemicals (sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, caustic soda, ethanol) and Man Made Mineral Fibres (MMFS)
  • Outer is highly tactile in wet and dry conditions and dries soft following normal use.
  • The gloves meet and exceed BS7971 Part 6.

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.
