As with all PPE, a compressive risk assessment is an essential prerequisite to ensure the correct Protective Glove
is supplied and used. We world be pleased to assist in this process, offering a complete survey service for all your Protective Glove and PPE needs.
Differing standards of performance are often indicated by the statement of numbers, typically within the range of 0-5. The lower the number,
the lower the performance level. Example: A glove for general use may show the following performance.
* Level X: The test is not applicable - Level 0: The glove is not tested or the minimum level is not reached
- Level 0: Lowest level of performances
0 TO 4 Burning behaviour 0 to 4 Contact heat resistance 0 to 3 Connective heat resistance 0 to 4 Radiant heat resistance
0 to 4 Resistance to small drops of molten metal 0 to 4 Resistance to large quantities
of molten metal
