9 Standard EN Gloves giving protection from mechanical risks. 10 Standard EN Gloves giving protection from thermal hazards. 11 Standard. Knowing the EN standards is essential in helping the right decision to be . EN STANDARD EN Gloves Giving Protection From Thermal Hazards. Safety standards help to keep us all safer at work. This one focuses on EN , a rating that will help determine how far the safety glove.

The fingers of a glove are exposed to a small gas flame for a specified time 3 and 15swhile the behaviour of the glove is visually observed. This code refers to 3 chemicals from a list of 12 standard defined chemicals for which a breakthrough time of at least 30 minutes has been obtained.

Based on the length of time the material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed. Based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. By understanding the rating systems and applying these safety glove regulations to the workplace, we can all protect our hands and prevent injury. The standard includes six thermal tests: Performance levels The higher the rating, the greater the performance, the lowest rating being zero. The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature.
EN – Protective gloves against thermal risks (heat and/or fire)
To protect from radioactive contamination, the glove has to be liquid-proof and needs to pass the penetration test defined stndard EN If it is classed in category III, the number of the notified body that carried out the tests also appears on the glove. Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to You can, of course, opt out of these communications at any time! Materials exposed to ionising radiation may be atandard by their behaviour to ozone cracking.
Protection against mechanical hazards is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers performance levelseach representing test performance against a specific hazard. A performance level shall only be mentioned if a performance level of 3 or 4 is obtained in the flammability test.
Please complete all required fields above Submit. With this in mind, Globus have put together a series of infographics to help guide standqrd through the important aspects of glove safety ratings. It is therefore necessary to measure break-through times, or the time taken for stsndard hazardous liquid to come in contact with the skin.
This test is optional and can be used as an aid to selecting gloves which require resistance to ionising radiation. Innocuousness pH All gloves are checked stanrard compliance in terms of their pH value between 3. To view the full range of infographics available from Globus, please click here.
If you need to protect your employees with industry leading safety gloves, take a look at the following product ranges available from Showa and Skytec and ensure your workforce comply. This is a guest blog post from Globus, safety glove manufacturer based in Manchester. A performance level shall only be mentioned if a performance level 3 or 4 is obtained in the flammability test. The weight of molten metal required to cause smoothing or pin-holing across a simulated skin placed directly behind the glove sample.
The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is exposed to radiant heat of a defined flux density. Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds.
Resistance to contact cold performance level 0 – 4 c.
The glove attains the levels standzrd resistivity required by this standard in terms of electrostatic conduction or dissipation. Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to 6:
