Tornado Quantum Industrial Safety Gloves QUA

Since industrial production environments can be particularly harsh, and the risk of accidents is high, exceptionally robust hand protection is called for. Unfortunately, this can often come at the cost of dexterity and fine handling ability in certain applications. 

The Tornado Quantum Industrial Safety Gloves QUA have been specially developed to provide the perfect combination of protection and dexterity. Made from technically-blended yarn, they provide high levels of abrasion, cut and tear resistance as well as excellent handling performance.

The product code for these gloves is QUA.

Advanced Blend

The Tornado Quantum Gloves are made from a filament yarn, resulting in a lightweight, seamless construction. Coupled with Lycra content, this means the Quantum have exceptional dexterity for tactile handling tasks.

Polyurethane Coating

The Tornado Quantum Gloves feature a light polyurethane palm coating. This supplies both positive grip and additional resistance to abrasion, making the gloves suitable for extended use in repetitive assembly applications.

Applications of the Tornado Quantum Industrial Safety Gloves

The Tornado Quantum Industrial Safety Gloves are designed for light to medium handling and are suitable for applications within the following industries:

  • Aerospace
  • Assembly
  • Automotive
  • Engineering
  • Recycling and Waste
  • Steel and Aluminium

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.
