Working in permanently cold environments

If you have to work with your hands, it's best to keep a cool head. And must make sure that the hands stay warm. The developers of protective work gloves know this. Their challenge is to do justice to the variety of different applications.

It is not permanently cold in most Central European working environments. But there is nevertheless a whole range of activities at cool temperatures, such as cold storage and the entire refrigerated logistics chain are among them. But also large parts of the sensitive food processing and food handling up to the refrigerated counters of the retail trade require a good protection against cold.

Hand protection in winter

In many other professions, cold protection is more of a seasonal issue. But that doesn't make it any easier for glove developers, because the issue of cold protection is often just one feature that adds up to many others. Because keeping warm alone is often not enough: if cut protection is required in the workplace, the warming variant for the cold season must also have this additional feature. Waterproofness is another important feature, because only dryness inside the protective work glove guarantees warm hands in the long term.

EN 511 regulates cold protection

Protective gloves against cold must comply with the European standard EN 511:2011. The result is a code with three performance levels under the ice crystal pictogram. Resistance to the flow cold of the air, cold transmission by contact and water impermeability are tested. The degrees of resistance to cold are each shown as 0 to 4. 0 means that test level 1 was not achieved, levels 1 to 4 describe good to better heat retention in ascending order. In the case of water impermeability, however, there are only levels 0 or 1. An "X" describes when one of the three tests was not performed or was not possible..

Cold protection gloves made of leather, latex, nitrile and PVC

In the past, work gloves used in cold conditions were often leather gloves with a warming molleton lining. Nowadays, however, cold-protective gloves are usually knitted with polyacrylic and have coatings of latex, nitrile or easy-care PVC. The deeper the glove is dipped, the better it protects against moisture and the longer the hands stay warm and dry even on wet and cold days.
