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)
- Highways maintenance
- Goods handling and warehouse
- Household cleaning
- 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:
|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. |
