EN 511 - Protective gloves against cold

The gloves are specially designed to protect the hands against cold. In accordance to EN 511, all testing has been performed on the material combination used in the glove. The gloves insulation properties may be affected by for example air temperature, humidity, wind speed, time of exposure, activity level, health and well being of the user. If wet, the glove may lose its insulative properties.

Test Levels
Convective cold 0 – 4, where 4 is best
Contact cold 0 – 4, where 4 is best
Capability of resisting water (5 min.) 0 or 1 *
 

* 0 = Water penetration after 5 min, according to EN 511:2006, which replaces previous standards with 30 minutes.

1 = No water penetration after 5 min, according to EN 511:2006, which replaces previous standards with 30 minutes.

X = The glove has not been submitted to the test or the test method appears not to be suitable for the glove design or material.
