Resistance of the TG5545
These gloves are excellent in extreme work environments, and are backed by a regulatory body adhering to EN 388 (mechanical protection). 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 ||N/A |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 3 |
|ISO Cut Resistance || |
|Impact Resistance ||Level P |
What Do These Results Mean?
To put it simply this means that the Traffi TG5545 gloves are a top quality pair of super gloves that offer a wide range of outstanding resistances, including resistance to abrasions, cuts, tears, punctures and impacts.
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. |
