How Much Protection Against Cuts Will the Portwest A622 Gloves Provide?

The Portwest A622 Gloves achieve a level 5 in EN 388 Cut Resistance or a level C under the new standard that was introduced in 2016. This means that the gloves offer a higher level of protection that is ideal for handling things with sharp edges, in particular glass, metal and other materials that you can expect to find in tasks like packaging, warehousing, engineering and mechanics. Unlike other gloves with high cut resistance, the dexterous nature of these gloves means that they are extremely versatile and suitable for more dexterous jobs too.

How Much Protection Against Heat Will the Portwest A622 Gloves Provide?

Achieving a level 1 in EN 407 Contact Heat Resistance, these gloves will protect your hands against contact temperatures of 100°C. They are still quite thin and sensitive, so you should be able to handle hot parts and equipment without dropping the item and without burning yourself too. For tasks in automotives, mechanics and engineering, these gloves really do excel.

Why Are the Portwest A622 Cut Gloves a Best Seller for Cut Protection?

The Portwest Cut-Resistant Gloves are a top pick across a wide range of industries that demand cut protection. This combined with their heat resistant qualities means that they are suitable for many different applications. They use a specially crafted HPPE, glass fibre and PU coating to ensure the best cut resistance on offer, and with their high abrasion resistance the user can be confident that they will continue to provide protection for long periods of time.

Why Do the Portwest Gloves Improve Productivity?

For many factories, warehouses and assembly plants, minimising costs, improving safety and increasing productivity are three constant battles. These gloves improve productivity because they manage to achieve the things that many gloves don't; combining exceptional cut and heat resistance with the dexterity and grip needed to get on with your job without making mistakes.

Why Do the Portwest Gloves Reduce Costs?

Leading on from the previous point on productivity, these gloves can also reduce costs. Reasons include:

  • Cost Effective: Extremely affordable gloves for the protection that they provide
  • Durability: Let you save money by lasting for so long that they don't require constant replacement
  • Protection: Wide range of protection means that you don't need to buy different gloves for different tasks within your workplace
  • Safety: Safe design reduces chances of staff and workers sustaining injuries on the job
  • Productivity: By improving productivity, it means more work can get done, which means that more money is made

How Durable Are the Portwest Cut-REsistant Gloves A622?

You might be fooled by the costs of these gloves into thinking that they aren't too durable. The HPPE and glass fibre liner is extremely hard-wearing, with these gloves achieving a level 4 in abrasion and tear resistance. This means that they can withstand a wide amount of knocks and scrapes without them sustaining damage. Gone are the days of replacing your gloves at the end of a shift, these can last weeks when used in the intended environment.

How Dexterous Are the Portwest Cut-resistant Gloves?

The materials in these glove includes HPPE, a high performance polyethylene that is machine knitted, and therefore provides exceptional dexterity. While you can't pull all of your thumbs back, you have enough dexterity to handle small items easily. This includes things like knuts and bolts, hammers and spanners and other tools and machinery.

How Sensitive Are the Portwest PU Coated Gloves?

The gloves are very sensitive, partly because their HPPE liner allows them to be so. You can write with a pen just as easily as you could do without wearing the gloves, meaning that using tools and equipment is just as easy. This makes these gloves about as useful for handling things as you would be without wearing any gloves at all.

How Grippy Are the Portwest A622 PU Coated Gloves?

You wouldn't want to use these gloves in greasy or wet environments, but when it comes to dry environments then you'd struggle to find any better suited gloves. They use a polyurethane 3/4 coating which acts almost sticky to the touch, making handling items extremely easy. It can reduce chances of you from dropping items, again improving dexterity.

How Comfortable Are the Portwest PU Coated Gloves?

The Portwest Gloves are completely seamless, meaning that there isn't any weak points in their design. This allows the gloves to move more freely, especially when you are using your hands to grab tools and machinery. This level of freedom reduces hand fatigue over an extended period of time.

How Breathable Are the Portwest PU Coated Gloves?

Working in warehouses where you spend a lot of time handling tools can make your hands fairly sweaty. The good thing about the Portwest PU Gloves is that they are very breathable, with microscopic holes in the HPPE and glass fibre liner allowing air to circulate the gloves. The palm dipped PU increases ventilation too, perfect for longer periods at work.

What Materials Are the Portwest A622 Gloves Made From?

The materials in the A622 Gloves include:

  • Liner: HPPE, Glass fibre
  • Palm Coated: Polyurethane

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.

What is EN 407?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 407. 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 407. EN 407 stands for Protective Gloves Against Thermal Risks, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to burns, contact heat, convective heat, radiant heat and small and large splashes of molten metal.

How Do I read the EN 407 Score?

Reading your EN 407 score is simple, as each hazard will be provided with a score between Level 0 and Level 4. Level 0 means the gloves failed against that particular hazard, and Level 4 means that they provide the best protection possible against that hazard.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 407 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Heat Safety Introductory Blog that introduces EN 407 in a simple, easy to read article.

Good fit on my chunky hands
Thursday, 8 April 2021  | 

Not found a need to use these since ordering, but for once can get a pair of cut gloves that fit my hands with out spending minutes getting them off. Dexterity seems to be good and pleased with them at present. More later if there is a problem with them in use.

Quality labouring gloves.
Thursday, 4 February 2021  | 

I'm a brick layers labourer and these gloves have thoroughly surprised me.

1 pair has lasted over a week which is a long time compared to other gloves which only last a day. I'm constantly handling bricks and muck, they've seen me right through. Definitely worth spending the lil extra for some quality kit. (This is coming from someone who likes to be cheap so this definitely proves I'm satisfied!)
