Skytec Toro Red Gloves

The Skytec Toro Red Gloves are ultra-lightweight, 13 gauge polyurethane work gloves that feature good levels of mechanical resistance for a glove of their weight. Their design makes them an ideal choice for finger and hand protection in detailed assembly, light fabrication or the precise handling of small components.

What Kind Of Protection Do These Gloves Offer?

These ultra-lightweight gloves feature exceptional abrasion resistance and very strong tear resistance, for long lasting protection in a variety of precise handling tasks. They also feature some cut and puncture resistance to protect hands from unexpected hazards. While they shouldn't be used for tasks that hold abnormal cut or puncture risk, they can be relied upon to keep hands safe and comfortable in a range of precision manual tasks.

What Is the Construction of these gloves?

With a 13 gauge machine knitted nylon liner and seamless construction, these gloves achieve the pinnacle of tactile feel and dexterity. The liner is also exceptionally abrasion and tear resistant, helping to expand its lifespan and protect hands from general grazing. It features a firm polyurethane grip and a lint free quality to prevent contamination of precise manufacturing lines or products.

What Conditions Are These Gloves Appropriate for Use In?

These gloves perform best in dry conditions. They are not designed to be used in significantly wet or oily conditions.

Features of the Skytec Toro Gloves

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

  • Full hand design – offers strong abrasion resistance to the whole hand
  • 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
  • Breathable back – helps to prevent sweat and skin irritation
  • Lint-free – to prevent contamination of small or precise processes
  • 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.

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

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Electronics
  • Logistics

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.
