Impact Speedcuff Cut 5 Gloves
Glove Safety Features
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 388:2016 standards and a A1-A9 scale (9 being the most cut resistant) by ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 standards. The EN 388 rating may also include the results of the TDM-100 cut test, which are measured on an A-I scale (I being the most cut resistant). For more information on cut resistance, check out our cut resistance blog.
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.
Impact resistance was recently added to the EN 388:2016 glove safety rating and measures back-of-hand knuckle impact protection. There are three potential ratings that would be included on the EN 388 safety icon: P for passed impact protection test, F for failed impact protection test, and X for not test for impact protection. There currently are no glove impact protection safety standards for ANSI/ISEA.
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 IMPACT Speedcuff C5 offers heavy-duty protection with a classic look, fit and feel. Made with an abrasion resistant synthetic leather palm, this glove will outlast any standard leather driver and gives the added benefit of cut level 5 resistant protection.
