The Cool series currently consist of 13-3 Cool SC general purpose cut glove Super thin 18-3 Cool SC The extra ordinary cut resistant 13-5 Supercool SC (cut F - 41N !!)
The Eureka team will exhibit at the ASSE conference in Denver, USA. Visit our both to meet our US sales team and see some of our classic products and some promising news. Don’t miss conference speech: “The Paradigm shift from general to frequency specific Anti Vibration gloves” on Wednesday at 2pm.”
The new EN 388 is now published & official! The new cut test is indeed a great leap forward! In the old EN388 coup cut test a glove with some hard fiberglass quickly achieved great results even if the real life protection wasn’t very good. All test methods have variations in their test results, as expected so does the cut resistance tests in ISO13997 and EN388:2016! The cut test result is quite sensitive to the mounting of the glove sample, stretching the sample or changing the direction of the knit vs the direction of the blade will influence the results of the test. At Eureka we endorse the new standard as a great step forward but would also remind our customers that all tests in different test centers as well as on our or other gloves, comes with a variation of test results! A result of 41N is perhaps best interpreted as 37-45N range.
It’s a wonderful world with an almost endless scientific depth of most subjects, hand safety included. Eureka has launched a series of E-learning presentations to capture the most important challenges in relevant hand safety areas such as: Vibration Arc flash EN388:2016. The E-learning is available at our customer page and could be used as standalone - or even better: with one of Eureka staff supporting at site or over a joint telephone conference!
Vibration exposure to the hands are a common problem with 10-20% of the work force being exposed in most countries. Automatization, better machines, and strict control of exposure levels and exposure time are all important measures to reduce damage. However, the correct glove also has significant potential to reduce vibration induced damage! There is a standard in which this problem is adressed: the ISO / EN 10819 standard. This is good but not enough! The main problems with the current standard are: The results are too general! The protection from the glove and the risk from the tool may vary a lot with frequency, and wide average values such as TRM & TRH are too crude to capture reality! The standard does not measure finger exposure at all despite the fact that fingers are the main problem and react very differently from palm! Eureka will shortly launch a new range of products that has detailed and well documented Anti Vibration performance both at fingers and palm. Each new glove is customized to fit a relevant set of tools - Our solution will for the first time allow our customers to match a suitable glove with the corresponding tool! The Eureka solution will render the traditional and potentially dangerous old ways of selling vibration gloves completely obsolete! Hold on, Change is coming soon!
And Eureka Safety does indeed welcome the new standard! Customers will now be able to better navigate within the murky waters of the old “cut 5” segment. We strongly urge our customers to endorse the standard and principle, rather than asking for a “cut 5 glove” we would recommend to set the requirement in Newtons, or if such requirement is unknown ask for ISO new EN 388 rating for the products presently used! The figure above is a visual display of where the Eureka assortment is located along the cut resistant scale. It should be noted that the most widespread and traditional method of making a “cut 5 glove” with basic HPPE and fiberglass usually yield 14-20N in cut resistance.
Our product 1310-2 Double Shell Nitrile is now certified to the highest level of insulation against contact cold! With carefully selected fibres and careful production process we produce a seamless glove that reaches performance level 4 according to the EN511:2006 standard – 1-2 levels above most competitors.
