Will These Gloves Help Me Protect Myself Against Viruses?

It's important to remember that not every pair of hygiene gloves can actually be relied upon to protect you from viruses. Viruses are so microscopic that they can easily pass through the material of ordinary disposable gloves. Luckily, all of the gloves featured on this list are guaranteed to provide suitable protection from the following:

  • Coronavirus
  • Influenza
  • H1N1
  • MRSA
  • SARS

EN 374 - 5

There's only one way to be sure that a pair of gloves will protect your hands from viruses, and that is if they have been tested and approved by the EN 374-5 gloves' protective standard. During testing these gloves are exposed to a nutrient broth containing virus particles, and then checked for indications of penetration. Any gloves certified under EN 374-5 allowed for no penetration whatsoever, helping to ensure your safety!
