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.

Warm fleece and highly recomended.
Sunday, 28 February 2021  |  John

The branding is prouneek but that makes no difference. I already have had one of these fleeces issued by a conservation organisation for a couple of years and it has survived being warn during such tasks as hedgelaying and other woodland work. I have just bought the new one, without logo, for my own use. It seems to be just as well made as the old one. The only slight criticism I would make is that the pocket material is not substantial. Even if it fails the pocket contents are contained by the double thickness of fleece in that area so that isn't a deal breaker.
