TraffiGlove TG165 Waterproof Tool Handling Gloves

The Traffiglove TG165 Waterproof Tool Handling Gloves are an excellent pair of lightweight, rubber coated handling gloves with Level 4 tear resistance for rugged handling tasks in wet and dry conditions. Their rugged durable grip and high tear resistance makes them perfect companions for assembly line work and engineering.  

What are the tg165 gloves for?

The TG165 Waterproof Tool Handling Gloves are longstanding models from TraffiGlove. Offering a knitted inner liner to keep the hands warm and secure, and an X-Dura Crinkle Latex coating which protects against water and dry conditions. Their layered design makes them suitable across a whole range of industries. Some industries where these gloves are recommended include:

  • Construction (trades)
  • Groundwork
  • Highways maintenance
  • Transport
  • Maintenance
  • Goods handling and warehouse
  • Telecommunications
  • DIY
  • Hardware
  • Household cleaning
  • Janitor 
  • Loading
  • Plumbers
  • Working

what is the resistance of the tg165 Gloves?

We believe these gloves are excellent for handling tools and getting the job done - but don't just 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 2
Cut Resistance Level 1
Tear Resistance Level 4
Puncture Resistance Level 2
ISO Cut Resistance

Level X


This means that the TraffiGlove Gloves offer an outstanding level of tear resistance, which protects the gloves from tear and wear. 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. Fortunately, their resistances to abrasion and puncture are mid-weight, making these gloves a good all-round pair to have handy. 


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. 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.

key features

The TG165 Gloves are designed with a number of key features that make them the perfect workwear gloves:

  • Polycotton knitted inner liner keeps the hand warm and secure
  • Palm is set with a dense black and sandy X-Dura Crinkle Latex coating for rugged and durable grip
  • The liner is lightweight and breathable for your comfort
  • The gloves are suitable for wet and dry conditions

How warm are these gloves?

These Gloves are lightweight but surprisingly dense, allowing for a good level of heat retention. They are compact enough to feel your hands are safe and secure.

Are they good for handling

The TG165 Gloves are fantastic for handling blunt objects (anything sharp is a no go). Their layered design provides them with a high tear resistance and a decent level of maneuverability, allowing for dexterous actions.

What Size should i Choose?

The TG165 are available in three 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 Circumference (mm) Length (mm) Min. Length of Gloves (mm)
Size 7 178mm 171mm 230mm
Size 8 203mm 182mm 240mm
Size 9 229mm 192mm 250mm
Size 10 254mm 204mm 260mm


The TraffiGlove TG165 Waterproof Tool Handling Gloves are supplied in pairs or in a pack of 10.

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.
