SIP Protection Anti-Vibration Forestry Gloves 2SA3

The SIP Protection Anti-Vibration Forestry Gloves have been designed to minimise vibrations and maximise protection when operating forestry machinery such as hedgecutters, brushcutters and strimmers.

The SIP Protection Anti-Vibration Forestry Gloves are fully water and oil-repellent, while the palms of the gloves are lined with a high density foam which absorbs impacts and vibrations.

The gloves are made from durable hide leather with reinforced Kevlar stitching and also feature an elasticated wrist cuff with artery protection and extra leather padding on the top of both hands.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE SIP PROTECTION ANTI-VIBRATION FORESTRY GLOVES 2SA3

The SIP Protection Anti-Vibration Forestry Gloves are suitable for a host of gardening and forestry activities, including:

  • Strimming
  • Hedgecutting
  • Digging
  • Brushcutting
  • Commercial forestry
  • Industrial forestry
  • General horticulture

SAFETY FEATURES OF THE SIP PROTECTION ANTI-VIBRATION FORESTRY GLOVES 2SA3

The SIP Protection Anti-Vibration Forestry Gloves feature a heavily padded palm which helps to nullify vibrations from machinery and also minimise the effect of impacts to the hands. The elasticated cuff on the gloves keeps the hands warm and dry but also features artery protection to help prevent a serious injury to the wrist when handling machinery. 

Furthermore, the gloves are 100% hide leather which varies in thickness between 2.0mm and 2.2mm across the glove with an extra layer of leather on top of the hand for added protection.  Kevlar stitching reinforces the seams of the gloves, with Kevlar's tensile strength more than twice that of nylon and polyester whilst offering less stretch.

The Anti-Vibration Gloves have been tested against the EN 388 standards for glove safety - which measures the level of protection provided by gloves against mechanical hazards - and achieved the following results:

TEST PERFORMED RATING (OUT OF 4)
Resistance to abrasion 3
Blade cut resistance 1
Tear resistance 3
Puncture resistance  2

The Anti-Vibration Gloves score highly in the abrasion and tearing tests as this is the most common risk associated with forestry machinery such as hedgecutters.

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.

Very good gloves so far. Need time for them to become less stiff.
