Ansell Thinsulate® Lining Gloves
- Hand protection is an important part of PPE
- There are a range of legislative guidelines which cover safety gloves – the main legislation is EN 388, which covers mechanical resistance
- Gloves which conform to EN 388 guidelines have a rating system which consists of 4 separate numbers
- These numbers show you how resistant the gloves are to a range of hazards. The higher the number, the more protective the glove
- The first number marks how resistant the gloves are to abrasion. This number will be between zero and four
- The second number marks how resistant the gloves are to blade cuts. This number will be between zero and five
- The third number marks how resistant the gloves are to tears. This number will be between zero and four
- The fourth number marks how resistant the gloves are to punctures. This number will be between zero and five
- EN 511 sets the standards for cold resistance in gloves
- Gloves which conform with EN 511 guidelines use three numbers to mark how resistant a glove is to a range of cold hazards
- The first number will be between zero and four, and shows how resistant the glove is to convective cold
- The second number will be between zero and four, and shows how resistant the glove is to contact cold
- The third number will be either zero and 1, and shows whether a glove is resistant to water
- For heat resistant gloves see Eurotechnique® Heat Resistant Gloves

Good to know
When it comes to cold resistant work glove dexterity, thinner is often better. This ensures that your workers still have a decent amount of manual dexterity when the gloves are on to be able to perform delicate tasks. The added feel also has the benefit of being more comfortable to most users, something your workers will thank you for when they have to pull long shifts in the cold. Another thing to consider, when picking thermal gloves is the flexibility of the material. The more flexible a material is, the more control your employees will have when manipulating objects. Like thickness, this must be a consideration when buying gloves.
Of course, a balance must be met when picking thermal safety gloves. For cold weather thermal gloves, look for EN388 and EN511 compliance for the gloves you're buying. This ensures that they meet a certain standard with regards to the cold protection and mechanical hazard resistance it offers. All in all, picking up gloves is a balancing act, but taking the time to find the perfect pair of gloves will help improve productivity and drop accident rates among your workforce.
