Skytec Red Digit Fingerless Gloves

The Skytec Red Digit Fingerless Gloves are lightweight fingerless work gloves that feature good levels of mechanical resistance for a glove of their weight. With exposed thumbs, middle and index fingers, they are ideal for use in detailed assembly or with small components, particularly if direct fingertip contact is required.

What Kind Of Protection Do These Gloves Offer?

With exceptional tear and abrasion resistance, these gloves are hard wearing for any general handling application. They also feature some cut and puncture protection but not enough to provide adequate protection if these risks are likely. No glove will match the tactile qualities of an exposed finger, but the trade-off is a lack of protection in these areas.

What Is the Construction of these gloves?

The body of the Skytec Red Fingerless Gloves is seamlessly constructed from nylon, and offers impressive abrasion and tear resistance for long lasting hand protection. They are Polyurethane palm-dipped, offering a high level of grip and cut resistance on the palms and fingers. These gloves also feature a fingerless design on the thumbs, index and middle fingers, which is ideal for any applications in which you need fingertip contact.

What Conditions Are These Gloves Appropriate for Use In?

These gloves perform well in dry or slightly oily conditions. This means they have utility in industries where some oil is likely to be encountered, such as the automotive industry.

Features of the Skytec Red Digit Gloves

In order to offer touch and dexterity alongside robust protection, these gloves feature the following:

  • Open finger design – on the thumb and two forefingers allows for added fingertip dexterity, touch and precision
  • Thin 13 gauge liner – is extremely lightweight for unwavering dexterity
  • Seamless construction – keeps hands comfortable over long periods of wear
  • Anatomical fit – minimises the risk of hand fatigue
  • Smart phone compatibility – due to fingerless design allows for quick access to touch screen devices on site
  • Trademark Sanitized finish – has antimicrobial qualities to maintain freshness within the glove
  • Elasticated wrist – ensures a firm and comfortable fit to a variety of hands
  • Tricolore red colour coding – is easily visible and helps to identify gloves quickly on sight

What Is the Tricolore Colour Coding System?

Skytec utilise a standardised colour coding system to help you select appropriate levels of cut resistance quickly and easily on site. The system is as follows:

  • Red gloves: level 1 cut resistance
  • Amber gloves: level 3 cut resistance
  • Green gloves: level 5 cut resistance

These red gloves feature only minimal cut protection, and shouldn't be used for work where you expect to encounter sharp objects or edges.

Are These Gloves Latex Free?

These gloves use a polyurethane palm-dip. This makes them latex free and allows those with latex allergies to wear these gloves without discomfort.

Applications of the Skytec Red Fingerless Gloves

The Skytec Red Digit Gloves are designed for precise and tactile applications, particularly those involving small components. Typical industrial applications include:

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Electronics
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Warehousing and distribution

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.
