Shield GI/500 Bi-Colour Rubber/Chloroprene Industrial Gloves

The Shield GI/500 Bi-Colour Rubber/Chloroprene Industrial Gloves are chloroprene-coated rubber latex gloves intended for high-risk and heavy-duty applications. Designed for both durability and comfort, the GI/500 Gloves are cotton flocklined to prevent perspiration and feature a hand-specific design to reduce fatigue during extended wear.

Reliable Protection

The Shield GI/500 Gloves are high-quality natural rubber gloves with a chloroprene coating on the palm for protection against fat and oil. They are textured on the palm and fingers to increase grip, enabling the wearer to hold implements and perform tasks with greater ease.

The GI/500 Gloves have enhanced abrasion resistance and are resistant to some detergents, alkalis and acids. In addition, the GI/500 Gloves feature an extra long cuff to protect the forearms against splashback.

Designed for Comfort

The GI/500 Gloves have a cotton flock lining for increased comfort and reduced perspiration. A hand-specific design provides a good fit, reducing hand fatigue during extended wear.

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.
