Protection Ratings and Safety Standards
EN 388 Mechanical Resistance
EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of gloves used for safety and protection. It determines the gloves' performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring the fabric's abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.
The EN 388 cut resistance test uses a single sharp implement to repeatedly pressure a glove in order to determine the amount of force required to cause visible and functional damage.
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||N/A |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 3 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 4 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level F |
Suitable Applications for HexArmor Cut-Resistant Gauntlet Gloves

- Blade Handling
- Debris Handling
- Knife Handling Applications
- Machine Operation
- Sharp Object Handling
- Sheet Metal Handling
Incredible Level F Cut Protection
Level F cut resistance is the maximum rating awarded under EN 388. It demonstrates a sharp implement would need to generate over an incredible 30 newtons of downward force to cause visible damage to a glove's fabric. This rating is the difference between serious injury and a blade tip or machine part getting jammed in between tight, cut-resistant fibres.

Durable SuperFabric Construction
There are some applications that require serious protection. SuperFabric is a cut and abrasion-resistant material designed for the hardest hitting environments. Garments that use it are exposed to cutting, tears, punctures, incisions and serious hand injury on a daily basis.
How Does SuperFabric Work to Protect Your Hands?
Serious about heavy-duty protection, SuperFabric was developed in 1996 as a solution for preventing needle and knife incisions. It is the layer that prevents a serrated edge, needle or blade end from breaking through your glove and causing serious injury to your hand.
Handling concrete, brick and stone generates a tonne of fallout. An extended wrist cuff is ideal for preventing dirt and debris entering a glove at the forearm. It also extends protection a step further, guarding the forearm area against impacts, bumps, scratches, scrapes and other harmful workplace hazards.
Specialised Silicone Patterned Grip
If you handle material day in day out, you need to know that your gloves are going to work with you, not against you. The grip pattern on the palm of HexArmor 400R6E Safety Gloves is raised to increase grip strength and safety. Know that when you need that extra assistance, your gloves are there every step of the way.
HexArmor Hercules Level F Gloves are easily washed. For best results, we recommend you turn them inside out and wash them on a cold water cycle to avoid damage to your washer/drier.
