Resistance of the TG1290 Gloves
These safety gloves are suitable for mild construction work and assembly activity with their touchscreen capability being a fantastic boost to multi-tasking on sites, but don't just take our word for it. These gloves are backed by a regulatory body, adhering to EN 388 standards. See below for further details:
What Is EN 388?
EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of the resistance of the gloves to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures. Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see X written instead of a number.
Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F, with the higher letter offering better cut protection.
|Property ||Resistance Level |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level A |
What Do These Results Mean?
The above ratings mean that the TG1290 gloves offer an exceptional level of abrasion resistance, which protects the gloves from wear and tear. They do, however, offer a rather low cut and puncture resistance, meaning that you won't want to wear the gloves in higher risk settings where the risk of cuts and punctures are present.
The TraffiSystem – Safety Level at a Glance
Traffi pride themselves on being the original inventors of the colour-coded safety glove system. The TraffiSystem makes it easy to identify the level of cut protection required, based on the EN 388 test for cut resistance, to ensure ultimate safety.
|Colour ||Rate of Cut Protection ||Description of Protection |
|RED ||Low ||Suitable for lower cut risk tasks only, such as general product handling, warehouse and assembly line work and some low risk construction jobs. |
|AMBER ||Medium ||Ideal for second fix construction, mechanical and electrical trades, steel fixing and handling materials with sharp edges. |
|GREEN ||High ||The best choice for higher cut risk tasks like applying cladding, demolition, steel fabrication and handling glass or sheet metal with cut edges. |

Touchscreen Compatible for the Modern Work Environment
If you work in a warehouse, you'll likely need to operate some form of device or scanner to carry out your duties so the touchscreen capability of the TG1290 means you can use your phones and electronic devices without taking your gloves off. They work by placing a tin amount of conductive material in the fingertips that is capable of absorbing the low-level electrical charge required to activate a touchscreen device.
What Are the TG1290 Gloves Made With?
The Traffi TG1290 gloves are made with 18 gauge polyester fabric which means the fabric sits tight around the hand for a snug but comfortable fit. They will allow you to lift, carry and perform dexterous tasks without worrying about loose fabric getting in the way.
What Are the Benefits of a Polyurethane Coating?
Polyurethane is commonly used as a safety gloves coating because it offers a great blend of protection and flexibility. A polyurethane coating also aids with grip, making them perfect for roles that require a great deal of tactile handling. Due to these inherent grippy properties, polyurethane coatings do not require any special treatment or manufacturing process in order to enhance their grip strength, keeping the price of your gloves down.
Which Size Should I Choose?
In order to select the correct size of safety gloves, simply measure the circumference of your palm (ignore the thumb area) and the length of your hand, as demonstrated in the diagram below. Once you've got your measurements, consult the sizing chart below. If your measurements fall on a boundary, we recommend sizing up for the best possible fit.
|Size ||Circumference (mm) ||Length (mm) |
|Size 6 (Extra Small) ||152mm ||160mm |
|Size 7 (Small) ||178mm ||171mm |
|Size 8 (Medium) ||203mm ||182mm |
|Size 9 (Large) ||229mm ||192mm |
|Size 10 (Extra Large) ||254mm ||204mm |
|Size 11 (XX-Large) ||279mm ||215mm |
