All our hand gloves are EN 388 & EN 407 Regulatory Standards approved

EN 407 regulatory standard

EN 388 Regulatory Standards

EN is the European standard used to evaluate mechanical risks for hand protection. It is an internationally benchmarked standard for the testing and certification of hand protection. It evaluates products against hand, glove, and arm protection, and provides guidance on minimum requirements for head, eye, and other protective equipment. It is a globally recognized standard that is used by safety professionals, industry, and government agencies to ensure the safest possible workplace.

Impact Resistant Hand Gloves

ANSI/ISEA 138-2019 Standards For Measuring Impact Resistance Of Hand Gloves

impact resistant standar

This standard is used to evaluate the impact resistance and protection of gloves. It specifies the requirements for gloves designed to protect the knuckles and fingers of the hand from direct impact from external objects. Impact resistance is classified into three levels: 1, 2, and 3, with level 1 representing the lowest level of performance and level 3 representing the highest level of performance.

EN388 Regulatory Standard

This standard is used to evaluate mechanical risks for hand protection, but a glove must be EN 388 certified in order to be legally sold in Europe. Gloves with an EN 388 rating must be tested by a third party and can be rated for abrasion, cut, tear, and puncture resistance.

EN388 Regulatory Standard

ANSI/ISEA 138-2019 Testing Process

ansi 138-2019

The impact protection of the gloves is measured using the ANSI/ISEA 138-2015 standard, working from the area of the knuckles to the fingers.

The testing area for the little and middle fingers is 5 cm from the fingertip. The testing area on the thumb, ring, and index fingers is 2.5 cm from the fingertip.

TPR Layers

Our TPR gloves feature 3 layers of thick, 6 mm TPR that resists impact without injuring your hand, highly durable stitching, and are made of 100% genuine or premium synthetic leather. They are designed to provide excellent impact protection.

Caco America Reusable Gloves

EN 374 Regulatory Standards For Reusable Gloves

reusable gloves

The European standard EN 374 is used to assess the needs for gloves that protect against dangerous liquids, chemicals, and microorganisms. This standard measures the rate at which various chemicals degrade and permeate gloves.

Our gloves are built to protect your hands from basic and specific hazards. They are also highly effective in preventing the effects & damages caused by micro-organisms.

Our gloves adhere to standard levels of:

EN 374-1

EN 374-1

Defines the terms used in the standard and specifies the requirements for protection against chemicals and microorganisms.

374-2

EN 374-2

Defines and specifies a test procedure for gloves that protect against chemicals and/or microorganisms in terms of penetration resistance.

278

EN 374-3

Defines the method for assessing a glove's resistance to potentially dangerous, nongaseous chemical permeation under repeated contact conditions.

Certified Under The ANSI 107-2020 Standards

ansi 107-2020

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) offers this certification to ensure that specific guidelines are followed when creating high visibility apparel, when selecting it, and when utilizing each type of high visibility apparel for the intended applications.

Class & Types

type-0

Type-0

Has been created for use in work environments without heavy machinery, complex viewing environments, or locations close to any type of high-speed road. It offers a moderate level of visualization.

class 1

Class-1

Intended for employees who work in low-risk areas, i.e., away from roads and complex work environments

class 3

Class-3

High visibility in all directions is provided for workers who are in areas that are prone to accidents, such as on fast roads (traveling at speeds over 50 mph). maximum body coverage, long-range visibility, and visibility in low light.

type-R

Type-R

It is made for use in daytime and night time environments, in visually complex workplaces, and is ideal for use in close-by high-speed machinery and road work. It is designed to provide high visibility.

class 2

Class-2

Providing 360-degree high visibility for workers who are in areas that are prone to accidents, such as high-speed roads (below 50 mph).

class 3

Class-E

Class E, which consists of additional clothing to increase the worker's visibility, such as reflective pants, high visibility jackets, or rain pants, does not fit into the numbering system. It will be deemed class 3 attire if a class E garment is added (for example, high visibility pants) and the worker is wearing a class 2 safety vest. If the worker is wearing a class 1 safety vest and a class E garment is added, it will be deemed class 2 attire.

Caco America Protective Coveralls

Protective coveralls are widely used in many industries, and the safety of employees depends on the equipment being used. Each type of protective equipment requires a different kind of certification to ensure it meets safety standards. Every piece of protective equipment requires certifications to meet safety standards, but each has its own unique set of requirements.

Hearing Protection

NRR & ANSI S3.19-1974 Standards

NRR Standard

The noise-reduction capabilities of hearing protection devices are measured by the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR), which has been chosen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The difference between the A-weighted environmental noise level and the NRR closely approximates the amount of noise that enters a person's ear when a hearing protector is worn as instructed.

Example:

1. The ambient noise level measured at the ear is 92 decibels (A).

2.The NRR is set at 23 decibels (dB).

3. The noise level entering the ear is roughly equal to [92-26 dB(A)] 66 dB. (A).

The C-Weighted environmental noise level should be used for noise environments where frequencies under 500 Hz predominate. The NRR used in the aforementioned example was attained in a lab setting.

Make sure you select hearing protection that has the dB level you need to avoid hearing damage when making your selection.

ANSI S3.10-1974 Standard For Different Sound Levels

levels of sound

This standard must be met by hearing protection equipment in order to be certified as protecting against different noise levels. Before the model can be sold with the NRR label, all products must pass rigorous quality and standards tests at authorized locations.
