Protective Gloves : General Requirements

EN420 : 2003 + A1 2009

This standard defines the general requirements for glove design and construction, innocuousness, cleaning instructions, electrostatic properties, sizing, dexterity, water vapour transmission and absorption along with marking and information

EN 388
Gloves giving protection from mechanical risks
Protection against mechanical hazards is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers (performance levels), each representing test performance against a specific hazard.

1 Resistance to abrasion
Based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove (abrasion by sandpaper under a stipulated pressure). The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4 depending on how many revolutions are required to make a hole in the material. The higher the number, the better the glove. See table below.

2 Blade cut resistance
Based on the number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

3 Tear resistance
Based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. 
The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

4 Puncture resistance
Based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

Protective Gloves Against Thermal Risks (Heat and/or Fire)

EN 407: 2004

This standard specifies thermal performance for protective gloves against heat and/or fire. The heat and flame pictogram is accompanied by a 6 digit number.

Requirements

Performance levels 1-4

f) resistance to a large melting metal spray

Amount of spray required to raise the glove to a certain temperature.

Performance levels 1-4

e) resistance to small melting metal spray

Amount of spray required to raise the glove to a certain temperature.

Performance levels 1-4

D) resistance to radiating heat

Time required to raise a given temperature level

Performance levels 1-4

c) resistance to convective heat

time during which the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat of a flame

Performance levels 1-4

b) resistance to contact heat

Temperature (within the range of 100 degrees to 500 degrees) at which the person wearing the gloves will not feel any pain (for a period of at least 15 seconds).

Performance levels 1-4

A) Resistance to flammability:

Time during which the material remains lit and continues to be consumed after the ignition source has been eliminated.

ANSI/ISEA 105-2011 

American National a Standard for Hand Protection 

This standard addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to chemical and industrials applications. Hand protection includes gloves, mittens, partial gloves, or other items covering the hand or a portion of the hand that are intended to provide protection against or resistance to a specific hazard.

These trousers are perfect for my job as an HGV driver. They are very comfortable, very well made and fit exactly as expected. I will be buying more of these in the future!

Best quality ''Hi-Vis'' for cyclists on the market ! Highest possible safety level
Tuesday, 7 August 2018  |  Martin

I first bought these waistcoats 2 years ago though Amazon from this manufacturer. Now I again ordered 5 for all my family and friends. We all are everyday cyclists. These are the only waistcoat-style sleeved Hi-Vis tops with extremely bright orange and yellow. Highest Safety level. Not only that: the way the colours are arranged make these Hi-Vis' extremely visible - we get a lot of comments on this . To have sleeves is important for cyclists since you indicate direction with your arms - with a "normal" vest this is a problem. The quality of these sleeved waistcoats is second to none: 2 years in DAILY use, Summer and Winter, washed approximately 5x and they still look perfectly fine and do what they should do. Okay, we had to fix a few seems which is perfectly and easily done, but otherwise a perfectly long lasting product. Colours DO NOT FADE either in Sun nor with time....

Comfortable, practical, good quality jacket
Saturday, 28 July 2018  |  Stuart

Going on the low price, I was skeptical as to the quality of this jacket when I ordered. I'm no longer skeptical. It's a great jacket & I'd buy another in a hearbeat.
It fits perfectly with none of the usual tight or loose spots that hinder welders & machinists.
It keeps out chilly draughts but doesn't boil you to death.
The fabric is easy on bare skin & wont make you itch.
It's light enough that it doesn't give you that oppressive "PPE feeling" but heavy enough that you know you're suitably protected.

The service from BKSafetyWear was second to none - my first colour of choice was out of stock & I was very quickly offered the option of a refund, a second choice or to wait on back-order. Dispatch & delivery was fast & efficient.

10/10 all round.
100% recommend Portwest gear.
100% trust BKSafetyWear to supply my small business any day!
Very many thanks!
