Electrical Safety Gloves Guide

When it comes to electrical work, you cannot take chances - you need to know that you are getting the best. We provide you with a choice of gloves that you can rely on 100 per cent. Although all the gloves we stock are made from the highest quality materials, exactly what type is best for you will depend on the type of work your business handles. Some of the gloves we sell are graded so you can choose ones appropriate for the level of current you are working with. We also stock antistatic gloves which are not designed to offer the same type of protection, but are very effective at protecting delicate equipment such as the innards of computer servers when technicians are working on them.

Electrical Gloves Materials And Properties

You may need gloves that are waterproof or resistant to chemical corrosion. Latex gloves can be vulnerable to damage by oil, but this is not true of all materials used in electricians’ gloves. Make sure you have spare pairs so that if damage does occur for some unforeseen reason, you can quickly replace them and the task can be completed with no temptation to take dangerous risks.

If the places where you work may contain sharp objects, you will need a heavier grade of glove, or an armoured glove to protect you from piercing or slashing damage that could result in an injury. This is even more important in situations where objects damaging the glove could carry a live current.

You will need to choose gloves which not only offer an adequate degree of flexibility, but also provide a strong enough grip for you to be able to do the work you need to do without dropping objects or letting them slip. If the work is likely to involve turning valves, for instance, you may need to be able to exert quite a bit of force through the glove and be confident that it will not start sliding.

Finally, you will need to make sure that the gloves you choose are long enough to offer full protection for the type of work you are doing, and you will need to make sure that they are safe for staff to wear. This means finding out about allergies and choosing hypoallergenic gloves where necessary.

Classes Of Electrical Safety Gloves

EN60903 defines six classes to which gloves can conform. Gloves with a better rating are approved for work under higher voltages. Gloves may need to be protected by an overglove, which will help prevent wear and tear. Once you know the maximum amount of voltage to which a worker will be exposed, you can see which type gloves you will need. Refer to this table to find out which EN 60903 class is right for you:

  • Class 00 – tested at 2500V approved for work under 500 volts

  • Class 0 – tested at 5000V approved for work under 1,000 volts

  • Class 1 – tested at 10000V approved for work under 7,500 volts

  • Class 2 – tested at 20000V approved for work under 17,00 volts

  • Class 3 – tested at 30000V approved for work under 26,500 volts

  • Class 4 – tested at 40000V approved for work under 36,000 volts
