Protection Ratings and Safety Standards for Heatbeater 757 Safety 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.
|ISO Cut Resistance
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:
|Contact Heat Resistance
|Level 4 (500°C)
|Convective Heat Resistance
|Radiant Heat Resistance
|Resistance to Small Molten Splashes
|Resistance to Large Molten Splashes

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.
INCREDIBLE 500°C CONTACT HEAT RESISTANCE
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.
