Skytec Tons TP5 Cut Resistant Gloves

The Skytec Tons TP5 Cut Resistant Gloves are durable work gloves with uniformly high EN388 mechanical resistance ratings and level D cut resistance – exceptionally high at this price point. They utilise full-hand flexible materials to ensure finger dexterity and precision is not limited and are ideal for working with metal or glass.

What Kind Of Protection Do These Gloves Offer?

With the highest tear and abrasion resistance, these gloves are hard wearing for any general handling application. They also include a high level of cut resistance for applications in which there is a high risk of encountering sharp edges, such as work with glass or metal, and a good level of puncture resistance. Their robust design helps to guarantee excellent cut protection for your whole hand.

What Is the Construction of these gloves?

These gloves feature a lightweight and durable knit body which helps to provide a medium level of protection over the whole hand and endures for longer than other gloves – further contributing to their great value. They are Polyurethane palm-dipped, offering a firm grip and EN388:2016 level D cut resistance on the palms and fingers (equivalent to level 5 under the 2003 system). Their breathable design helps to ventilate hands during even more intensive work.

What Conditions are these gloves Appropriate for Use In?

These gloves perform best in dry conditions. They are ideal for use in applications which do not involve a significant amount of fluid or oil.

Features of the Skytec Tons TP5 Gloves

In order to maintain robust and reliable levels of protection, these gloves feature the following:

  • Level D cut resistance – equivalent to level 5 under the old system, protects hands in a range of applications involving sharps
  • Whole hand design – offers total protection to your hands without limiting precision
  • Polyurethane palm – is flexible while offering reliable protection
  • Robust liner – which maintains high levels of protection against abrasion and tears
  • Knitwrist cuff – ensures a firm and comfortable fit to a variety of hands
  • Ventilated design – keeps the hands cool and comfortable even in warmer conditions

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 them without discomfort or adverse reactions.

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.
