EN Standards

Arco stays informed and up to date with current regulations for hand protection, so customers can rest assured they are in safe hands.  Each glove in the new Comfort Light Range has been tested and approved to meet EN 388:2003 Standard, which assesses glove’s ability to protect against mechanical hazards. The Standard includes a series of four tests which measure the glove’s resistance to abrasion, cutting, tearing and puncture.

Tim Emmerson, Product and Procurement Manager for Gloves at Arco, explains: “Hand injuries can seriously impact a workers’ quality of life and their ability to work. The key to keeping hands safe at work is not just the appropriate level of protection, but also comfort. If safety gloves are uncomfortable, workers may be tempted to remove them, eradicating hand protection altogether.

“In response to end-user research, we have launched the new Arco Comfort Light Range that offers the wearer protection whilst retaining both comfort and functionality.”

Arco has created an interactive product leaflet including all product information and EN Standards. The product leaflet can be found online and is easily accessible for customers to use.
