These standards mean that you can use these gloves to protect against bacteria, viruses and it means that you can use them safely in a medical environment. The AQL rating means that the gloves aren't likely to let liquid through, helping to improve the contamination risk.

What is EN 374?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 374. 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 374. EN 374 stands for Protective Gloves Against Chemicals, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to chemicals and micro-organisms.

How Do I Read the EN 374 Score?

Understanding EN 374 takes a little but more effort than with other standards as it comes with different letters, numbers and symbols that represent different levels of protection against different types of chemicals. Some of the different things you may see include:

  • Symbol: Corresponds to the test that the products were subjected to
  • Type: Corresponds to how many chemicals the product was tested against
  • Letter: Corresponds to which chemicals the product was tested against
  • Number: Corresponds to how long the product can withstand the chemical

Where Can I Find Out More?

We try our best to make it clear in the copy which chemicals the product can withstand. However, if it isn't clear or if you'd like to know a bit more, you can see the Introductory EN 374 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

Sunday, 3 April 2022  | 

I have found them to be: slightly larger than the last box I purchased, both stated 'large' also the previous gloves to my mind were slightly thinner than the new ones. I have used one pair to date and they seem O.K., except for the slightly larger aspect.

Hi Susan,

Many thanks for taking the time out of your day to leave a review with us. Viewing and responding to customer feedback is a really important part of what we do as it gives us an insight into how our products perform when they leave us!

I have contacted the manufacturer regarding your issue and they have confirmed to me that there has been no formulation/design change to this product. They could also confirm that the thickness of these gloves has always been 0.09mm.

We hope this information is valuable and thanks again for taking the time to leave a review with us.

Kind regards,

Seth at SafetyGloves.co.uk
