Impact Resistance  Level P

What Does This Mean?

To put it simply this means that the TraffiGlove Gloves are a top quality pair of super gloves. Offering a wide range of outstanding resistances, including resistance to abrasions, cuts, tears, punctures and impacts, these gloves really set the bar for what safety gloves can be. 

The TraffiSafe System – Safety 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 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 TG5545 Gloves are designed with a number of key features that make them the perfect workwear gloves:

  • Liner constructed using a careful choice of Polyester, Polyamide, HPPE, Steel, Elastane
  • Nitrile coating allows these gloves to resist elements of water and oil  
  • Palm is set with a dense black and sandy X-Dura Nitrile Foam for a hardy and impervious grip
  • Nitrile thumb crotch reinforcement - aids glove protection in this critical area and lengthen wear life
  • The gloves are suitable for wet and dry conditions

How Warm Are These Gloves?

The compact mix liner materials from (Polyester to Steel) makes these Gloves a dense and surprisingly comfortable pair that allow for a decent level of heat retention. 

Are The TG5545 Gloves Good for Handling?

The TG5545 Gloves are fantastic for handling both blunt and sharp objects. Their well-detailed, buttressed design gives them a formidable edge over high impacts and sharp objects. You would think such a layered design would impede the dexterity of the gloves, but amazingly the gloves operate with ease and precision.

Which Size Should I Choose?

The TG5545 Gloves are available in 4 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.

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.
