Shield GI/F12 Green Heavy-Duty Industrial Nitrile Gloves

The Shield GI/F12 Green Heavy-Duty Industrial Nitrile Gloves are high-quality abrasion-resistant gloves designed for high-risk and heavy-duty applications. Manufactured from tough but flexible nitrile material, with a hand-specific design and cotton flocklining, the GI/F12 Gloves provide durable yet comfortable hand protection.

Serious Protection

Manufactured from acrylonitrile butadiene, the GI/F12 Gloves are tough and durable, with an EN388 rating of 4 for abrasion resistance. The GI/F12 Gloves are impenetrable to oils and a number of solvents, detergents and other chemicals, and their long cuff enhances user safety by shielding the forearms from splashback.

Comfort Features

The GI/F12 Gloves have a cotton flocklining to increase user comfort and reduce hand perspiration. Their hand-specific design effectively reduces fatigue during long periods, making these gloves ideal for tasks where hand protection is required for an extended amount of time.

Textured for Better Grip

The GI/F12 Gloves are textured on the palm and fingers to enhance grip. This allows the user to hold onto materials and implements and manoeuvre them with greater ease. This is particularly useful for tasks that demand a tight grip and/or precise hand movements.


The GI/F12 Gloves are packaged in pairs, with each individual pair sealed in a pouch. This prevents damage to the gloves prior to use and promotes better hygiene.


The GI/F12 Nitrile Gloves are bright green in colour, making them ideal for environments where colour-coding is used to reduce contamination. This could include use in laboratories, pharmacies and environments where steps need to be taken to prevent the spread of disease.


  • Shelf life of three years
  • EN420 rating: Dexterity Level 5

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.
