Impact Cut 5 Winter Gloves
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.
Impact Resistance is another popular and sometimes much needed attribute to hand protection. There are different impact standards that vary from industry to industry. If you need help identifying which type of impact level you need, contact the 212 experts to help you find the perfect form of protection.
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).
