The TraffiSafe 3 colour coding system is an innovative, proven and easy way to ensure your workforce is wearing an appropriate level of protection for the task in hand.
The colour coding (Red, Amber and Green) relates to the glove’s performance on the EN 388 test for cut resistance.
The RED gloves have a level 1 score, so they are only suitable for lower cut risk tasks. The RED colour itself is a warning to the wearers to be sure they are always wearing sufficient protection, as many accidents occur simply because someone did not think about – or understand – the risk involved in a particular task.
The GREEN gloves have a top score of 5, making them the right choice for higher cut risk tasks such as handling sheet metal. The colour GREEN provides the internationally-recognised confirmation that it is ‘Safe to go’ when there is a higher risk of cuts.
HIGHER CUT PROTECTION
Premium quality safety gloves made from high performance, cut resistant threads and other technical fibres
Maximum cut protection provided for professions and tasks requiring hands-on contact with sharp or jagged materials
Rugged, long lasting design ensures a lower cost of ownership compared to inferior products
Our GREEN gloves are designed for handling higher risk materials in dry and/or wet conditions, depending on the particular coating. They are the perfect choice for cladding trades, glass handling, manipulating sheet metal with cut edges, swarf and metal work, recycling trades and any other business that involves hands-on work with sharp or potentially sharp materials.
As with the RED and AMBER TraffiGloves, our GREEN range gloves are designed to be comfortable to wear. This is critically important when carrying out tasks that require the highest level of protection as removing the gloves for even a short time would put the worker at significant risk of cuts and abrasions, the two major causes of serious hand injuries.
