Hohenstein offers testing & certification of gloves

Dec '12
For work in cold stores, on steel works, a building site or in a laboratory, people depend on perfectly fitting gloves. They protect people's hands, their most important tools, from dangers in their daily working life.

Therefore the Hohenstein Institute can now offer testing and certification of gloves in accordance with the following standards:

-Protective gloves - general requirements and test methods (DIN EN 420)
-Protective gloves for firefighters (DIN EN 659)
-Protective gloves against chemicals (DIN EN 374)
-Protective gloves against mechanical risks (DIN EN 388)
-Protective gloves against heat and fire (DIN EN 407)
-Protective clothing for users of hand-held chainsaws (DIN EN 381-7)
-Protective gloves for welders (DIN EN 12477)

For the best possible protection protective gloves are often made with several layers of different materials. Both ready-made gloves and additional material samples are used as text objects depending on what is prescribed in the individual test process. The certification is carried out in the same way as for other textile PPE in accordance with the European Directive 89/686/EEC.

To complement this the Hohenstein Institute is currently compiling a database of hand dimensions. State-of-the-art 3D scanner technology is used to compile precise and validated data such as the ratio of hand circumference to finger length, finger circumferences and even three-dimensional shape information. The ensuing virtual 3D-models are used by glove manufacturers to create customised ergonomic adaptations.
