Protection Ratings and Safety Standards for Polyco Kevlar Plus Gloves

EN 388

  • EN 388: 3343X

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 3
Cut Resistance Level 3
Tear Resistance Level 4
Puncture Resistance Level 3
ISO Cut Resistance N/A

Suitable Applications and Environments for Use

Please view the list below to see some example professions, environments and jobs that suit Polyco Reflex K Safety Gloves:

Durable and Hardwearing Kevlar Lining

Polyco K Plus Safety Gloves are unique in their use of Kevlar as a protective foundation fabric. Kevlar is a patented synthetic material used in the construction of bulletproof vests, cut-resistant garments and stab-proof vests, which demonstrates its protective qualities.

How Do Polyco Reflex Construction Gloves Protect My Hands?

A pair of safety gloves are only as good as the protection they offer. Unlike other building and construction gloves, Polyco K Plus Reflex Safety Gloves are designed not only to guard against common on-site hazards like abrasions, cuts and puncturing; they also ensure the hand is looked after by cradling the wrist with a soft elasticated knit lining to minimise fatigue and strain on your joints.

Polyco Reflex K Plus Safety Gloves

Durable Latex Coating

Latex is an incredibly durable coating when faced with abrasions, cuts and puncturing. It is an incredibly strong coating that provides a high level of protection without requiring a great deal of coverage, making it ideal for manual handling due to its inobtrusive and thin layering.

Breahtable Back for Enhanced Airflow

Breathability matters when you're working long and strenuous hours outdoors. Sweat, odour and perspiration can quickly build up, causing irritation, blotching and discomfort on the backs of your hands. A breathable back and palm-only coating ensures odour can leave naturally by enhancing airflow through the glove.

Polyco Reflex Building Site Gloves

Strong and Stable Grip Enhancement

When you're handling brick, timber and other volatile material, there's nothing more important than a strong and stable grip. Thanks to their latex coating and Kevlar reinforced lining, Polyco Reflex Building and Construction Gloves ensure that dropped material, slippage and grip instability are a thing of the past.

Elasticated Knit Wrist

If you frequently find dirt, dust and debris in your gloves at the end of the day, you're putting your skin at risk of irritation, blotching and developing dermatological conditions like eczema and dermatitis. An elasticated knit wrist prevents dirt and debris entering your glove, making sure your hands remain irritation-free no matter what you handle throughout the course of the day.

Minimise Hand Fatigue and Tired Joints

Hand fatigue and stress on the joints is a real problem for manual handling professionals. Polyco Kevlar K Plus Safety Gloves are designed to allow the user to work long hours without stress and strain arising when the job is finished.

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.
