Suitable Applications and Environments for Use

Why Do I Need Heat Resistant Safety Gloves?

Transferring heated, charged or flammable material in a furnace or smithy is incredibly dangerous. Exposure to heated material in any form will burn straight through a pair of standard safety gloves, causing serious injury and damage to your hands.


Polyco Heatbeater Safety Gloves are designed to heat-related prevent harm in extreme situations and environments. Complete with a maximum level 4 500°C contact-heat resistance rating, they allow the user to handle charged, heated and enflamed material for up to 27 seconds without showing signs of damage.

What Heat-Related Tasks Can Polyco Heatbeater Gloves Help Me Perform?

Polyco Heatbeater Gloves are designed for extreme applications. Please see below for example scenarios where they can prevent serious injury:

  • Preventing an ignition source from catching your gloves alight
  • Handling heated or charged smithy tools 
  • Slicing through your hand with a sharp blade, serrated edge or jagged smithy tool
  • Transferring heated material from a furnace
  • Welding or fabricating intricate metal parts

Maximum Level F Cut Resistance Rating

If that wasn't enough, Polyco Heatbeater Flame and Heat Gloves also comes with a maximum level F cut resistance rating which demonstrates their durability in the face of blades, knives and sharp material. A level F rating indicates that a garment or fabric can withstand an incredible 30 newtons of downward force applied by a sharp implement without perforating or penetrating through to the hand beneath.

Protection Against Flame, Fire and Molten Splash

Protecting the hand is not enough when you're working with incredibly dangerous material. Heatbeater Heat and Flame Safety Gloves are resistant to small amounts of molten splash, making them ideal for welders, foundry and furnace workers and forgers handling slag and charged material.

Durable and Robust Kevlar Foundation Fabric

Kevlar is an incredibly durable synthetic polymer manufactured and designed to prevent serious injury in the face of blades, serrated edges and seriously sharp equipment and material. A garment that uses Kevlar as a foundation fabric can.

Innovative and Safe Aluminised Glass Fabric Wrist Cuff

Molten splashing and inadvertent contact with heated material can cause serious harm and catastrophic injury in extreme workplaces. Polyco Heatbeater Gloves use incredibly rare  aluminised glass fabric coating to prevent molten splashes and other heat-corrosive materials burning through your glove and causing irreparable damage to your hand and wrist.

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.
