Protection Ratings and Standards for Polyco Ultra Abrasion Resistant Safety Gloves

EN 388

EN 388: 4111X

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 4
Cut Resistance Level 1
Tear Resistance Level 1
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance N/A

Key Features and Benefits

Suitable Applications and Environments for Polyco Ultra Safety Gloves

Please view the list below for a few example professions and environments that suit Polyco Ultra Safety Gloves best:

Incredible Level 4 Abrasion Resistance Rating

Under EN 388, the maximum level 4 abrasion resistance rating indicates that a glove can withstand a huge amount of traffic and contact before showing signs of wear. This is ideal for warehouse use and with professionals working on construction and building sites. 

Heavyweight Jobs Require Heavyweight Gloves

If you are using your hands all day, you'll know the value of a bulky pair of heavyweight gloves. The added scrape and scratch protection that you just don't get from a thinner glove makes Polyco Abrasion Resistant Gloves ideal for all types of timber yard work, manual labour, construction handling and building site clearance.

Available in minimum order quantities of 12 pairs per order, Polyco Ultra Gloves are perfect for outfitting an entire team or workforce. Ordering before a new job has never been easier.

This method of ordering helps keep costs down and protection levels up. Simply select the quantity you require from the dropdown menu at the top of the page.

Grip Enhancing Palm

The foam coating used to construct Polyco Abrasion Resistant Safety Gloves increases grip in wet and damp conditions. This is due to the absorbent properties of the thick, heavyweight nitrile coating used to bulk out the glove.

Polyco Ultra Safety Gloves

What Are the Benefits of A Nitrile Coating?

Nitrile is an excellent coating for use in dirty, wet and damp conditions as the tiny bubbles inside it absorb moisture and tiny particles of liquid. This prevents the glove from becoming slick and damp, which can cause the user's grip to fail.

The nitrile coating used in the manufacturing of Polyco Ultra Safety Gloves is thick, granting added protection against scrapes, scratches and scuffs.

Elasticated Knit Wrist

An elasticated knit wrist not only stabilises the joint to maximise comfort and fatigue resistance; it works to prevent dirt and debris entering the glove, ensuring tiny fibres, molecules and moisture droplets can't enter to cause irritation and nasty reactions.

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.

Tough but stiff
Monday, 8 October 2018  | 

Really tough gloves. However they are quite stiff, but I guess given the material that may be expected. I used the website size chart and the fit is a little small, I don't have big hands but I'd definitely go for an XL next time.

Great Value
Saturday, 11 February 2017  | 

These gloves are the best I've tried working with steel. They are hardwearing and I washed them several times in the washing machine and they are still fine to use. I bought them from Safety Gloves because they had the best price and they arrived very quickly so I'm very pleased with the product and the service from them and would recommend them 100% to anyone.
