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.

Excellent boots - and very quick service and delivery !!

This is the 2nd pair of these type of boots I have bought for my husband.....he says they are extremely comfortable to work in, hardwearing, flexible and keeps his feet very warm even with thin socks......well worth the price as they have a long lifespan.......and they are so easy to take on and off with the side zip. would buy these again. Ordering was quick and simple and good comms from company throughout.....and delivery was very fast, 2-3 days after ordering and we live in France !!

The first hi-viz vests I ordered from another supplier were quite short in length. I found these to be ideal and as soon as I saw the make I knew they would be fine because they are the same brand as we use at work. I wanted a decent hi-viz to use for my other job as. MHE instructor and these have proved to be ideal.
