Our range also includes work winter gloves, which are extremely suitable for working in cold conditions. Even so extreme that some work winter gloves offer protection against -50 ° C. These comply with the European Standard 511: 2006. This standard applies to gloves that protect hands against conductive and contact cold up to -50 ° C. The protection against cold is indicated by an icon followed by a series of three performance levels that refer to specific protective properties.
A - Conducting cold
B - Contact cold
C - Water penetration test
|A. Conducting cold||Thermal||ITR insulation||m & sup2; .C ° / W|
|I <0,10||0,10 <I <0,15||0,15 <I <0,22||0,22 <I <0,30||0,30 <I|
|B. Contact cold||Thermal||resistance R in||m & sup2; .C ° / W|
|R <0,025||0,025 <R <0,05||0,05 <R <0,1||0,1 <R <0,15||0,15 <R|
|C. Water penetration test|
All these gloves must achieve at least performance level 1 for abrasion and tear resistance. '0' means that during the test level 1 has not been reached. "X" means that the test has not been performed or is not possible.
Winter work gloves
Thermo gloves are available in different versions, such as the inner lining and the coating with its specific external characteristics. Popular liners include acrylic and polyamide. These protect your hands from the cold so that you can continue to work comfortably and warmly. In addition, we have several winter work gloves that protect your hands against the cold, insulate well and are also waterproof.
As described above, the EN standard 511: 2006 is one of the most important standards for working where gloves are cold-resistant. In addition, it is possible that these gloves also protect cold-resistant against mechanical hazards and / or chemicals and micro-organisms. At the bottom of each glove is described which EN standard the glove meets and how the winter glove performs at performance level as described above in the table.
