Categories of gloves
Category 1: Gloves of simple design - for minimal risks
Gloves that fall under category 1 only offer protection against minimal risks or against contamination of the product. The user must be able to easily determine himself what degree of protection the glove offers.
Category 2: Gloves of intermediate design - for medium risks
Gloves in category 2 are designed to provide protection against medium risks. Think of gloves for general work with good puncture, abrasion or cut resistance. These gloves must be tested and certified by a recognized inspection organization (Notified Body).
Category 3: Gloves of complex design - for irreversible or deadly risks
Gloves that fall under category 3 are designed to provide protection against the most severe risks, such as chemicals and certain degrees of heat or electricity. The PPE gloves that fall into this category must be tested and certified by a recognized inspection organization. The manufacturer or importer in Europe must subject these gloves to an EC-type examination and ensure the quality of the end product. The Notified Body that carries out the annual inspection is identified by a number that must be stated with the CE marking.
Arm and hand protection
Arms and hands are important, indispensable tools in the work process that we must be very careful with. The percentage of industrial accidents involving arms and / or hands is more than 50%. Often times, these injuries can be prevented by eliminating or mitigating risks, or through the deployment and proper use of work gloves.
Standards work gloves
The regulation of the gloves starts with the European standard EN 420, which describes the general requirements and test methods. All protective equipment from the main group arm and hand protection is CE approved in accordance with the European EN standards applicable to the application.

Safe PPE gloves
The arm and hand protection must provide effective protection against what they are intended for. The work glove must be ergonomically sound. This is reflected in the company by offering different sizes of pbm gloves. In addition, they must comply with the above CE inspections and the safety gloves must be provided with a Dutch manual.
Customized work glove
Our work gloves are available in different sizes. In order to use the work gloves as safely as possible, the size must be adapted to the user's needs. The correct size of the work glove can easily be determined with the help of a measuring tape. Place a tape measure over the knuckles. Turn your hand over so that the ribbon lies on the inside of the palm. Measure the distance and determine which size you need.
