Glove Safety Features
Abrasion resistant is part of the mechanical risk tests in ANSI 105 and EN 388 for work glove performance requirements. The EN 388 is measured on a 1-4 scale (4 being the most abrasion resistant) and ANSI 105 is measured on a 0-6 scale (6 being the most abrasion resistant). The abrasion resistance test is done by rotating a flat surface against the glove palm material until it is punctured.
Select 212 Performance gloves are made with antimicrobial materials. Antimicrobial gloves help prevent bacteria buildup, unpleasant smells, and rashes.
Dexterity is the tactile sensitivity (or flexibility) of a glove. In general, the thinner the glove, the more dexterity it has and the easier it will be to handle small objects. The test we use to determine 212 Performance glove dexterity is EN 420:2009. This test measures the smallest stainless steel pin that can be picked up. The smaller the object, the higher the rating on a 1-5 scale.
Grip Level is a 212 Performance glove standard testing metric. We conduct the test in house by using a measured grip pressure and adding weigh to the object being help. The more weight that can be held at the consistent pressure, the higher the rating of grip strength. We rate Grip Level on a 1-5 scale (5 having the most grip).
The 212 MECHANIC is the ultimate general utility glove. Made with quality materials, designed for a superior fit, this glove is one of the most comfortable, cross-functional gloves on the market. Designed for comfort and built for battle, this glove has everything you need to get the job done.
