Polyco Leather Protection Gauntlets with Buckle for Electricians Gloves

Designed to provide additional protection when dealing with electrical threats, the Polyco Leather Protection Gauntlets with Buckle for Electricians Gloves provide you with mechanical protection on top of electrical protection. Designed for use as an over glove for the Polyco Electricians Insulating Latex Gloves, these gauntlets protect your gloves from being ripped, pierced or cut.

Why Do I Need to Use the Leather Protection Gauntlets?

Polyco's Electrician Gloves are ideal for protecting your hands against the threat of electrical currents, but they are not designed to withstand mechanical threats, such as abrasion or sharp edges. Made from hard-wearing leather, the Leather Protection Gauntlets help to ensure that your electrician gloves remain in one piece, keeping them at their highest level of efficacy.

Please note that Leather Protection Gauntlets should be purchased at least one size bigger than your Electrician Glove size in order to physically fit over the Electrician Glove.

Physical Resistance of the Polyco Leather Protection Gauntlets with Buckle

The Polyco Protection Gauntlets have been tested to EN 388, the European standard that measures the physical resistance of gloves. Please see the table below for a breakdown of the results.

Test Performance Level
Abrasion Level 3
Cut Level 1
Tear Level 2
Puncture Level 1

Provides Greater Grip in All Environments

Another benefit of using the Leather Electrician's Protective Gauntlets alongside your standard electrician's gloves is that they provide greater grip. If you are working in dirty or oily environments, you may find that latex gloves become slippery or unreliable. The Leather Gauntlets remove this issue, allowing you to handle items safely and with less chance of accidents.

Key Features of the Electrician's Leather Over Gloves

  • Over gloves designed to be used with Polyco Electrician's Gloves
  • Give your gloves greater longevity by protecting against mechanical threats
  • Reduce the wear and tear to your gloves
  • Provide greater grip in a range of situations, including when dealing with oil and dirt
  • Include a buckle that ensures a greater level of fit for comfort

Sizing of the Polyco Electrician's Over Gloves

Polyco Leather Over Gloves are available in six different sizes designed to suit most users. Please note that due to the bulk of the Electrician's Gauntlet, it is recommended that you select a leather protection gauntlet that is at least one size bigger than your Electrician Gauntlet.

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.

PPE and Health and Safety
Thursday, 1 March 2018  | 

Worked for a company dealing with voltage incidents on behalf of major DNO's and during the H&S induction the apparent need for these gloves became very relevant. When I left I decided I should have these in my kit for those times when pulling a main cut-out fuse is unavoidable. From a safety point of view these are essential in those circumstances, after nearly 35 years of not using anything it took some startling videos of avoidable accidents for me to change my ways. If you're thinking of buying safety gloves I recommend these at least to class 0 if not class 1. Live long and prosper people.
