Arm Yourself with Cut-Resistant Gloves
Recent studies have shown that hand injuries are amongst the most common injuries suffered in the workplace, making it essential to ensure that workers are provided with the proper protection. We developed a range of cut-resistant gloves that provide superior protection, comfort, and durability.
At Safety Vests and More, we understand the importance of protecting workers from hand injuries. Providing you with a range of cut-resistant gloves that provide superior protection, comfort, and durability. Our gloves are designed to protect from cuts, scrapes, and abrasions, and are made from high-quality materials that are lightweight and breathable.
The importance of protecting workers from hand injuries cannot be overstated. That is why we are proud to offer our range of cut-resistant gloves. They are designed to provide superior protection and comfort while being lightweight and breathable. With these gloves, workers can focus on their work, knowing their hands are well-protected against cuts, scrapes, and abrasions.
What are ANSI 105-2016 CUT-RESISTANCE LEVELS?
The ANSI 105-2016 Cut-Resistance Levels are designed to help indicate the amount of weight needed to cut through a surface or material. These levels range from A1, which requires 200-400 grams of weight to cut, to A9, which requires 6+ kilograms of weight to cut.
A1 – Light Cut Hazards | 200–400 Grams of Cut Weight
A2 – Light/Medium Cut Hazards | 500–999 Grams of Cut Weight
A3 – Light/Medium Cut Hazards | 1–1.5 Kg of Cut Weight
A4 – Medium Cut Hazards | 1.5–2.2 Kg of Cut Weight
A5 – Medium/Heavy Cut Hazards | 2.2–3 Kg Grams of Cut Weight
A6 – High Cut Hazards | 3–4 Kg of Cut Weight
A7 – High Cut Hazards | 4–5 Kg of Cut Weight
A8 – High Cut Hazards | 5–6 Kg of Cut Weight
By following the ANSI 105-2016 Cut-Resistance Levels, it is easier to determine the appropriate amount of weight needed to cut through a specific material or surface. Knowing the exact amount of weight needed to cut through a material helps to ensure that the process is carried out safely and correctly.
What is the difference between EN and ANSI cut level?
The main difference between EN and ANSI cut levels is that EN cut levels are based on European standards, while ANSI cut levels are based on American standards. EN cut levels are determined by a test which measures the amount of force needed to cut through a material using a rotating circular blade, while ANSI cut levels are determined by a test which measures the amount of weight needed to cut through a material using a straight-line cutting motion. Both sets of standards are designed to measure the resistance of materials to cutting and provide a standardized method of comparison.
How do I know which glove to buy?
When purchasing gloves, it is important to consider the type of activity that the gloves will be used for in order to choose the most appropriate gloves for the job. It is also important to consider the level of cut resistance that is needed. The ANSI 105-2016 Cut Resistance Levels provide a guide to determine the amount of weight needed to cut through a material or surface. Knowing the appropriate level of cut resistance will help to ensure that the gloves purchased are suitable for the job. The ANSI 105-2016 Cut Resistance Levels can be used to determine the appropriate gloves for jobs that require a high level of cut resistance, such as food processing, meat cutting, carpentry, construction, and more. These levels are also useful for jobs that involve handling sharp tools or objects, such as medical professionals and technicians, automotive workers, and other occupations where hand protection is necessary.
What does the CAT rating label mean on my gloves?
The CAT rating on cut-resistant gloves labels indicates the level of cut resistance provided by the gloves. The CAT rating is based on the ANSI 105-2016 Cut Resistance Levels. The higher the CAT rating, the higher the level of cut resistance. The CAT rating scale ranges from CAT 1, which provides the least amount of cut resistance, to CAT 9, which provides the highest amount of cut resistance. The CAT rating can be used to determine the appropriate gloves for specific activities and jobs.
Apart from cut resistance what else should I look to know more about the glove?
Apart from the level of cut resistance, it is also important to consider the material and construction of the glove. Different materials can provide different levels of protection, comfort, and durability. It is important to choose a glove that is made from a material that is suitable for the job and comfortable to wear. It is also important to consider the type of grip, ventilation, and dexterity provided by the glove. The type of grip, ventilation, and dexterity can affect the performance and comfort of the glove. Additionally, it is important to consider the sizing and fit of the glove before purchasing to ensure that the gloves fit properly and provide the necessary protection.
