These are gloves for minimal risks and thus low danger of injury, e.g. with repairs or protection against dirt. The gloves must comply with the basic requirements of EN 420 and must be marked with the CE mark. A type examination is not required, a declaration of conformity is sufficient.
This category is for gloves with increased risk of injury. Here, an additional type examination is required. This standard covers, for example, the gloves of EN 388, for protection against mechanical hazards.
Here, in addition to the type examination, a quality control according to ISO is required. This includes all PPE, e.g. firefighter or chemical protection gloves. There, in case of failure serious damage to the health of the wearer is to be expected (mortal dangers). In order to simplify it for the user, pictograms have been introduced that represent the protection functions.
Cut resistant gloves
Injuries to the hands are unpleasant and also often affect the worker for a long time. In many areas, wherever sharp-edged objects are handled, cut-resistant gloves are legally required. Cut-resistant gloves are particularly resistant to puncture and protect against mechanical hazards. Despite the sturdy and robust materials, our gloves offer a high wearing comfort, a good fit as well as flexibility and tact.
