How Do Polyco 891 Safety Gloves Protect My Hands?
Polyco 891 Safety Gloves are manufactured using a base layer of Kevlar to enhance protection against blades and other sharp objects and a top layer of highly heat and flame-proof fabric to ensure protection against contact-heat and fire/flame. This combination means the user can safely handle heated material, sharp objects and knives/blades without injuring themselves or their hands.
Performance Ratings for Polyco Flame and Cut Resistant Gloves
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 3 |
|Cut Resistance ||N/A |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 3 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 4 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level D |
EN 407 is a European safety regulation governing the sale of gloves and garments that are resistant to any number of fire, heat and molten related hazards. Please view the table below to find out more:
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Burning Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Contact Heat Resistance ||Level 2 (250°C) |
|Convective Heat Resistance ||N/A |
|Radiant Heat Resistance ||N/A |
|Resistance to Small Molten Splashes ||N/A |
|Resistance to Large Molten Splashes ||N/A |
What Do These Ratings Mean?
A level D cut resistance rating means fabric used in the construction of Polyco 891 Safety Gloves is capable of withstanding up to 15 newtons of downward force applied by a sharp object. This rating makes them safe for use with sharp metals, blades and jagged material like machine parts and tools.
Polyco include a real difference maker with an incredible maximum level 4 burn resistance rating which indicates a garment will burn for no less than 2 seconds once fire/flame is removed. This hard-to-attain rating is based on the length of time a piece of material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed from the fabric.
Key Features and Benefits
- Maximum level 4 flammability resistance rating under EN 407
- Highly cut-resistant for safe blade, knife and jagged material handling
- Contact-heat resistant to temperatures up to 250°C
- Manufactured with a double-stitched Kevlar foundation to bolster protection
- Grain leather fabric is hard-wearing and built-to-last
- Available in five different sizes for a guaranteed perfect fit
Level D Cut Resistance Rating
A level D cut resistance rating is the difference between safely handling and transferring sharp and jagged material and the tip or side of a serrated blade slicing straight through the fabric of your gloves to damage your hands. Polyco use a combination of cut-resistant fibres and a Kevlar foundation to prevent sharp edges breaking through the durable outer fabric of their Cut Resistant 891 Safety Gloves.
Maximum Flame Resistance
Maximum flame resistance is an incredibly rare performance rating, even in gloves that are heat resistant. This rating means that, in the event your glove does catch fire or is exposed to a flammable ignition source, once that source is removed, the gloves will cease to burn within an incredible two seconds.
This rating makes the difference when handling heated material in seriously dangerous environments. In order to prevent serious flame related injury, you need this protection rating when working around fire and flame.
Seamless Contact Heat Handling
Polyco 891 Cut and Flame Resistant Safety Gloves allow the user to seamlessly and safely handle material heated to a temperature not exceeding 250°C for an incredible 15 seconds. Whether you're removing material from an autoclave or picking up heated tools in a foundry, know that your hands are safe and protected up to 250°C.
Suitable Applications and Environments for Polyco 891 Gloves
Please view the list below to see which professions and environments are tailor made for Polyco 891 Heat and Cut Safe Gloves:
Strong and Durable Kevlar Foundation
Kevlar is a synthetic material manufactured by DuPont. It is a tightly woven collection of aramid fibres, spun until the bond formed between them is too tight to separate and is used in cut-resistant clothing and gloves because the lack of gaps between the fibres means a blade cannot easily pierce or puncture it.
Reinforced Thumb Crotch Prevents Tearing
A reinforced thumb crotch is a really nifty addition to any durability focused safety glove. It means that the inherently weak area at the point at which the thumb and palm meet is reinforced using a combination of hardwearing fabric and extra stitching, meaning when you tense your hand or form a fist, this commonly torn area is bolstered and reinforced.
