A key tool for the development of a single market is standardization of products, harmonization of national standards in accordance with European ones.
European standards are applied to increase the safety and productivity of consumers and employees. This is a valuable tool for increasing the competitiveness of Ukrainian companies, thereby creating conditions for economic growth.
In manufacturing of working gloves under TM Doloni specialists of LLC «PA «Dniproshkirhalantereia» are guided by the requirements of these standards, allowing customers to choose products according to risks and necessary level of protection.
Marking and information
Each protective glove that will be used in Ukraine has to be marked with a sign confirming compliance of products with technical regulations. In addition, the gloves should indicate: the name of the manufacturer, the name of the product and size, the number of the standard, any other pictograms corresponding to this product.
Currently, Ukraine uses the following harmonized standards for hand protection:
This standard defines the general requirements for glove design and construction, innocuousness, cleaning instructions, electrostatic properties, size, dexterity, absorption / repulsion of water vapor, as well as labeling and information requirements.
The national standard ДСТУ EN 388 describes requirements, test methods and marking of protective gloves against mechanical risks.
Protective gloves are classified according to their level of effectiveness in relation to each of the individual mechanical hazards. Corresponding values (a number from 0 to 5, 4/5 are considered to be the best) are listed under appropriate pictogram. Mechanical risks and their testing methods are defined in the ДСТУ EN 388 standard as follows:
a. Abrasion (protection level from 0 to 4)
b. Cut (protection level from 0 to 5)
c. Tear (protection level from 0 to 4)
d. Puncture (protection level from 0 to 4)
The national standard ДСТУ EN 407 regulates minimum requirements and special test methods for protective gloves in relation to thermal risks. Protective gloves certified in accordance with this standard protect a person from contact heat, radiant heat and molten metal splashes.
Protective gloves are classified and tested according to ДСТУ EN 407 for the following criteria:
a. Ignition (fire properties of the material) (protection level from 0 to 4)
b. Contact heat (protection level from 0 to 4)
c. Convective heat (protection level from 0 to 4)
d. Radiant heat (protection level from 0 to 4)
e. Small splashes of molten metal (protection level from 0 to 4)
f. Large quantities of molten metal (level of protection from 0 to 4)
This standard defines requirements and test methods for protective gloves for metal welding, cutting and similar processes. Depending on the functions, gloves for welders are divided into two types:
Type A: Low dexterity (with high functionality)
Type B: High dexterity (with low functionality)
