What are the TraffiGlove TG5120 Gloves For?
The TraffiGlove TG5120 Gloves are designed for use in high-risk handling tasks.

How Much Cut Protection do the TraffiGlove Metric Gloves Offer?
Don't be fooled by thinking that Cut Level C Gloves are average because they aren't. Under the old EN 388 standard they would have achieved the highest cut-resistant score, which means that they can withstand over 20 cycles of being repeatedly cut by a circular blade. If you'd like more information on EN 388 and TraffiGloves, please see the Traffisafe System blog.
How Else do the TraffiGlove Gloves Protect Your Hands?
It isn't just outstanding cut resistance that the TraffiGlove Gloves offer, with high abrasion, tear and puncture resistance too. Their exceptional all-round protection can give you a peace of mind that when at work, you can continue what you're doing without having to worry about injury. They are tested to EN standard EN 388 to ensure a high level of performance and achieved the following score:
|Resistance ||Resistance Level |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||N/A |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 3 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level C |
What Does this Mean?
This means that these gloves offer some of the best resistance around, achieving the maximum abrasion and tear resistance scores. This means that they can withstand most knocks, scrapes and rough materials, while their level 3 puncture resistance is enough to protect from most threats.
How Thick Are the TraffiGlove Metric Handling Gloves?
Despite the high level of mechanical protection that the TraffiGlove TG5120 Gloves offer, they still manage to retain a certain level of thinness. While they aren't as thin as their weaker cut level A gloves, they are still thin enough to ensure enough dexterity that handling is made simple. Furthermore they are also thin enough to grip and hold more tactile items, particularly those that are hard to grab such as tools and machinery.
How Much Grip do the TraffiGlove TG5120 Metric Gloves Provide?
TraffiGlove understand that the key to safe and secure general handling tasks is dexterity and grip. The TraffiGlove TG5120 Gloves are designed with both of these in mind, featuring a polyurethane coating that has texturing on the palm. This coating allows smaller and tactile items to grip a little more, perfect for fast work in assembly, automotive and industrial industries.
Do The TraffiGlove Metric Handling Gloves Protect the Wrist?
The TG5120 Handling Gloves feature an extra long wrist, meaning that mechanical and cut protection is provided from your fingertips up to your wrist. This can work to give you a piece of mind at work, giving you the confidence to work without the threat of injury hanging over you. This increased confidence can improve productivity too, especially as the flexible design means that your wrists movement is not restricted.
