Tornado Vitra Industrial Safety Gloves VIT

Designed for a wide selection of applications, the Tornado Vitra Industrial Safety Gloves VIT are ideal for anyone handling glass, steel, or aluminium. Combining high dexterity and enhanced grip in both wet and dry conditions, they provide comfort to the wearer without compromise to safety.

The code for these gloves is VIT.

Classification of the Tornado Vitra Gloves

The Tornado Vitra VIT Gloves have been tested to EN 388, the European standard that governs the physical resistance of gloves. The results are as follows:

Physical Threat Resistance Level
Abrasion Level 4
Cut Level 5
Tear Level 4
Puncture Level 3

Applications of the Tornado Vitra Gloves

The versatile VIT Gloves are suitable for a wide selection of industries, including the following:

  • Aerospace
  • Aluminium
  • Automotive
  • Component assembly
  • Engineering
  • Glass
  • Maintenance
  • Recycling and waste
  • Steel
  • Utilities

Comfortable with Enhanced Grip

The Vitra VIT gloves have been designed to combine excellent levels of comfort and practicality. They feature a seamless technically blended unique filament yarn, with a high-density clean polyurethane palm coating, with forefinger and thumb reinforcement. This means the gloves will be comfortable against the skin, eliminating any possible discomfort that could otherwise hinder performance.

The gloves provide excellent grip in both wet and dry conditions for improved performance.

Improved Safety and Hygiene

Offering a level 5 cut resistance, the VIT Vitra Gloves enable a safer handling of materials and objects. With excellent abrasion and tear resistance, they are ideal for general handling.

As the gloves are constructed with an antibacterial agent, they will remain both more comfortable and hygienic for longer. This will be particularly useful when worn for longer periods of time.

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.
