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 For Welders

Type A: lower dexterity (with higher other performance).

Type B: Higher dexterity (with lower other performance).

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.

Sizing quite large!
Wednesday, 16 September 2020  |  Rachel

I ordered size SMALL as I'm a size 10 and it's HUGE on me! That's OK as I will be able to wear it during winter with a big winter coat underneath. I got this for cycling to work in busy London traffic. Love the pink colour! For reference I am a size 10, 58kgs, 5 foot 4 with a DD bust and the small is really big. I should have ordered the XS. Oh well, it only cost a few £ and it will serve it's purpose of making me more visible whilst cycling in traffic. It's really thin and light which is what I wanted so I can fold it up really small to keep in my bag when I'm not cycling. If you're wanting something a bit more sturdy, hard wearing and substantial then you should go for something a little more expensive but I think this is fine for what I need it for.

Sizing a little big but good otherwise.

I got this for cycling in busy traffic in London to make myself more visible. I haven't used it yet as it's too warm but it is well made for the price. I love the neon pink colour! I'm a size 10, 58kgs and 5 foot 4 with a large DD bust and this fits pretty well in size XS. It's a little big but I think that's ok as I'll most likely be wearing it in winter with a jumper or jacket underneath.
