AX360 Seamless Knit HPPE Cut 5 Gloves (Dozen)
Glove Safety Features
Abrasion Resistance is measured on a 1-4 scale (4 being most abrasion resistant). It is measure during the EN:388 test by rotating a flat surface against the material until the material is punctured.
Anti Microbial keeps gloves from smelling bad. 212 makes several of their products with antimicrobial materials to avoid bacterial buildup and unpleasant smells and rashes.
Cut Resistance is the most talked about attribute when it comes to hand safety. Gloves are measured on a 1-5 scale (5 being most cut resistant) by EN standards and a 1-9 scale (9 being the most cut resistant) by ANSI/ISEA standards. For more info on cut resistance, see page 9 of the catalog.
Dexterity is the tactile sensitivity (or exibility) of a glove. In general, the thinner the glove, the more dexterity it has and the easier small objects are handled. The test that is most known for scoring dexterity is EN:420, which measure by the smallest size object that can be picked off of a flat surface. The smaller the object, the higher the rating on a 1-4 scale.
Grip Level is conducted in house using a measured grip pressure and adding weight to the object being held. The more weight that can be held at the consistent pressure, the higher the rating of grip strength. We rate grip test on a 1-5 scale (5 having the most grip).
Puncture Resistance is tested under the EN:388 standards and based on a 1-4 scale (4 being the most puncture resistant). The test measures the pressure it takes to push a 1mm tipped steel rod through a material.
Tear Level is another metric of the EN:388 testing method and is measured by testing the tinsel strength of the main material of a glove. It is tested by hanging the glove and adding weight to the free end of the glove until the material threading ruptures.
Cut protection is crucial on the job. Don’t short yourself. The AX360 C5 has the highest EN Cut rating a glove can achieve. The foam nitrile palm increases your grip and the breathable HPPE shell protects you from cuts and lacerations.
