Cut protection gloves from Franz Mensch
Cut-resistant gloves protect your hands from injuries caused by cuts or tears. Cut-resistant gloves are part of the personal protective equipment (PPE) and are mandatory wherever you work with sharp-edged or pointed objects. The cut resistance of a glove is regulated by EN 388. Depending on the test result, cut-resistant gloves are therefore divided into different performance levels and cut protection levels. Cut-resistant gloves are worn both in food areas, e.g. as butcher's gloves or cut-resistant gloves for the knife-wielding hand, and in industry as cut-resistant work gloves and assembly gloves.
Why cut resistant gloves?
Who has not experienced this? You're cutting vegetables, meat or other foodstuffs and a brief moment of inattention causes the knife to slip and dig painfully into the skin. The risk of cuts is particularly high in the professional sector, where sharp knives or edged objects are used on a daily basis. In order to ensure safety in the professional sector and to enable speedy, efficient work, buy high-quality and tested cut protection gloves here at Franz Mensch. With the right cut protection glove, you work safely and have your head free - full concentration on your job.
Cut-resistant gloves are available in different variants to meet as many customer requirements as possible in different areas of application. Here you will also find the right protective glove for your area of application. Another advantage: Franz Mensch is a manufacturer of protective products. Therefore, you can benefit in the area of cut protection gloves from the large selection, the innovative models and a very good price-performance ratio.
Cut protection gloves as personal protective equipment (PPE)
When it comes to protection against injury, the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) guidelines apply. Tested cut-resistant gloves meet all performance requirements and carry the CE mark. Cut-resistant protective gloves are particularly common in the metal and glass industries, automotive manufacturing and in the field of electronic equipment.
Perfectly combined: cut resistance and sensitivity
Franz Mensch's cut protection gloves are made of cut-resistant high-tech fibers or incorporated lightweight steel fibers. The firm, extra-dense knitting ensures even more safety. Particularly important in everyday work: the protective gloves are a perfect fit, lightweight and noticeably comfortable. Thanks to the ergonomic fit, they offer excellent tactile sensitivity - ideal for precise work and secure gripping.
The EN 388 - cut-resistant with letter and seal
Franz Mensch cut protection gloves comply with EN 388, a standard that defines the requirements when it comes to protection against physical and mechanical hazards. Protective gloves that comply with EN 388 protect against:
- Blade cuts
- Crack Injuries
Note: Level X can also be applied for A to F and stands for "not tested" or "not applicable". This standard applies in conjunction with EN 420.
The cut resistance of a glove is tested as standard using the so-called Coupe test. In this test, the test sample must withstand a circular knife in several passes. The knife travels over the glove both in rotation and in a forward and backward motion. The result of the test is calculated as a factor and determines the cut protection level achieved: levels 1 to 5, with 5 being the best cut protection class.
The Coupe test is especially applicable for cut protection gloves made of high-tech fibers. Since the new EN 388:2016, there is another test. It applies above all to cut protection gloves whose material consists of glass fibers or steel fibers. In the so-called TDM cut resistance test in accordance with EN ISO 13997 (ISO test for short), a sharp blade is pressed once onto the test sample. The minimum force required to cut through the glove indicates the performance level. The force is measured in newtons: levels A to F, where F is the best cut protection level.
