TraffiGlove TG1210 Lightweight PU Handling Gloves

Designed for use in low-risk handling based applications, the TraffiGlove TG1210 Lightweight PU Handling Gloves promise reliable and affordable protection, keeping a workforce safe in all day tasks such as assembly. Their flexible nylon liner ensures that the wearer has total control of materials, while a PU coat can protect the hands against low risk hazards such as abrasion.

What Are the TraffiGlove TG1210 Gloves For?

They are designed with one thing in mind; handling. Their thin and dexterous nylon liner offers enough sensitivity to give the user total control while using the gloves, while a durable polyurethane coat provides enough protection from your hands to stay safe from knocks and scrapes. They are suitable for most low risk jobs that require general handling tasks, including:

  • Assembly
  • Automotive
  • Building
  • Component handling
  • Construction
  • General purpose
  • Industrial
  • Local authorities
  • Maintenance
  • Materials handling
  • Packaging
  • Packing
  • Public transport
  • Transportation
  • Utilities
  • Warehouse

Please remember that these tasks are just examples of where these gloves are recommended, and they aren't limited to these tasks. Should you want to wear these gloves in environments that are lower risk but require grip, then these gloves should do the trick.

How Much Protection do The Metric Handling Gloves Offer?

The TraffiGlove Gloves offer enough protection that you will be able to get by in low-risk tasks with your hands protected from threats. To ensure protection that you can trust, the TraffiGlove Gloves have been tested to EN standard EN 388. The score they received is as follows:

EN 388

Resistance Resistance Level
Abrasion Resistance Level 3
Cut Resistance N/A
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 outstanding level of abrasion resistance, which can protect the hands against knocks and scrapes. They do, however, offer lower cut-resistance, meaning that you won't want to wear the gloves in higher risk settings where the risk of cuts is present.


TraffiGlove pride themselves on being the original inventors of the colour coded safety glove system. The TraffiSafe 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. They're a good choice for visitors on site, in order to comply with safety regulations.
AMBER Medium  Ideal for second fix construction, mechanical and electrical trades, steel fixing and handling materials with sharp edges. The gloves in this range are finished with a variety of coatings.
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. They also provide the higher levels of protection necessary when dealing with unknown risks, such as in the waste and recycling industries.

How Flexible are the TG1210 Metric Handling Gloves?

Their super thin nylon liner is designed for flexibility, meaning that they will don onto your hands incredibly easily. Furthermore while you are wearing the gloves they can stretch and bend to the natural movement of your hand, meaning that your handling skills aren't compromised during use. This thin liner gives you almost total dexterity, ideal for handling materials.

How Much Sensitivity Will I Retain When Using the TraffiGlove Metric Gloves?

Handling requires sensitivity, and the TraffiGlove TG1210 Gloves provide enough sensitivity to ensure that the wearer has total control when handling materials. It's this level of sensitivity that gives you the confidence while you handle materials, safe in the knowledge that you can feel the object in your hands and aren't at all concerned about your hold on the item.

How Much Grip Will the TraffiGlove TG1210 Gloves Provide?

The selling point of the TG1210 Metric Gloves is their combination of dexterity and grip. One thing that all handling gloves need is grip, and these gloves have that in abundance with their extra grippy and textured polyurethane coating. As you can see from the image below the textured palm works to create a roughened texture, ideal for making items stick to your gloves and reduce the chances of dropping.

How Comfortable are the TraffiGlove MEtric Gloves to Wear?

These gloves are incredibly comfortable to wear because their flexible nature can bend and flex with the natural movement of your hands. This helps to reduce the strain and pressure that your hands will feel at work, which in turn reduces levels of hand fatigue that you may begin to feel later in the day. Combined with their affordable price, this makes these gloves well suited to all day, low risk tasks such as assembly.

What Materials are the TraffiGlove Handling Gloves Made From?

The materials that the TraffiGlove Gloves are designed from are as follows:

  • Nylon
  • Polyurethane

Can You Wash the TG1210 TraffiGlove Gloves?

These gloves are suitable for washing however we would recommend not tumble drying them. Please note that if you do wash them, you should frequently inspect the gloves for signs of damage. Additionally please be aware that machine washing these gloves may impact their overall mechanical protection.

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.
