Cut resistant glove inspection

Cut resistant glove inspection needs to understand preventing cut levels. Basically there are two standards are commonly used in main markets. ANSI/ISEA 105 standard (2016 edition) glove rates A1 to A9, while A1 gloves are classified for protecting from lightest weight forces, ANSI Level 9 gloves are classified by preventing heaviest forces. It is important to note that the European standard is commonly used as well. The EN388 (European Standard) classifies their ratings similar to ANSI. But they have six clarifications compared to ANSI’s nine. The EN388 ratings differentiates by letters instead of numbers like ANSI’s rating system. They are classified A – F. Level A gloves protect from lightest forces and Level F protect from heaviest forces. Visual cut resistant glove inspection should make sure all prints on gloves, labels, tags are marked in conformity, although you cannot testify the rating is correct.

Fitting test

Fitting test is an important part of visual inspection. Take a suitable pair of gloves and wear them to feel they are comfortable or not to wear, as well as to feel they are flexible enough.
