TraffiGlove NGT1290 Ultra Lightweight Touchscreen Gloves

The TraffiGlove NGT1290 Ultra Lightweight Touchscreen Gloves are an exceptional pair of super lightweight gloves that are fitted with touchscreen capabilities, appropriate for people visiting construction sites. The touchscreen capabilities of these ultra-lightweight gloves make them ideal for use in modern work environments, for example in dispatch and logistics.

What Are the NGT1290 Gloves For?

The NGT1290 Ultra Lightweight Gloves are a capable pair of flexible gloves with a steadfast grip. Their innovative PUD coating provides high levels of gripping power whilst their high performance liner coating provides dirt and abrasion resistance. Whilst these gloves are recommended for visitors and forepersons due to their exceptional touchscreen sensitive finger-spread, they are also suitable across a whole range of industries, including:

  • Construction (trades)
  • Groundwork
  • Highways maintenance
  • Automotive
  • Maintenance
  • Goods handling and warehouse
  • Warehousing
  • Assembly
  • DIY
  • Hardware
  • Household cleaning
  • Janitor 
  • Loading
  • Plumbers
  • Working
  • Tasks that include use of touchscreen devices

What Is the Resistance of the NGT1290 Gloves?

We believe these gloves are a sufficient pair for mild construction work and assembly activity, their touchscreen capability being a fantastic boost to foreperson activity - but don't take our word for it. These gloves are back by a regulatory body, adhering to EN 388 (mechanical protection). See below for further details:

EN 388

Property Resistance Level
Abrasion Resistance Level 3
Cut Resistance Level X
Tear Resistance Level 2
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance Level A

What Does This Mean?

This means that the TraffiGlove Gloves offer an exceptional level of abrasion resistance, which protects the gloves from wear and tear. They do, however, offer a rather low cut and puncture resistance, meaning that you won't want to wear the gloves in higher risk settings where the risk of cuts and punctures are present. Fortunately, as outlined, these gloves are designed to assist low-profile figures on the work site that deal with administration rather than the heavy activities, so these gloves a good pair to have handy on site.

The TraffiSystem – Safety Level at a Glance

TraffiGlove pride themselves on being the original inventors of the colour coded safety glove system. The TraffiSystem makes it easy to identify the level of cut protection required, based on the EN 388 test for cut resistance, even at a glance or from a distance.

Colour Rate of Cut Protection Description of Protection
RED Low Suitable for lower cut risk tasks only, such as general product handling, warehouse and assembly line work and some low risk construction jobs.
AMBER Medium  Ideal for second fix construction, mechanical and electrical trades, steel fixing and handling materials with sharp edges.
GREEN High The best choice for higher cut risk tasks like applying cladding, demolition, steel fabrication and handling glass or sheet metal with cut edges.

Key Features

The NGT1290 Gloves are designed with a number of key features that make them uniquely beneficial gloves to have on site:

  • High performance liner, dirt & abrasion resistant
  • Innovative PUD coating, providing high levels of grip
  • Highly tactile, touchscreen compatible
  • Super lightweight for portability 
  • The gloves are suitable for dry conditions

How Warm Are the TraffiGlove NGT1290 Gloves?

These gloves are lightweight but surprisingly dense, allowing for a decent level of heat retention. They are compact enough to make your hands feel secure.

Are the TraffiGlove Ultra-Light Gloves Good for Handling?

The NGT1290 have a novel PUD coating which allows for a strong and consistent grip on blunt objects. Handling anything sharp or hazardous is not recommended. In addition to this, the gloves allow you to operate a touchscreen, making them ideal for the modern work environment.

Which Size Should I Choose?

The NGT1290 are available in four different sizes, meaning that you should be able to find the size that's right for you. To measure your hand, measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles (excluding the thumb) with your hand open and your fingers together as seen in the image below.

Indications of Where to Measure Your Hand

Size Hand Circumference Hand Length Min. Length of Gloves
Size 7 178mm 171mm 230mm
Size 8 203mm 182mm 240mm
Size 9 229mm 192mm 250mm

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.
