Standard EN407
Gloves Providing Protection from Thermal Hazards

Standard EN407This standard refers specifically to the thermal performance of work gloves against thermal hazards such as heat, fire and molten metal, amongst others. The glove is graded using 6 different tests, which are graded from performance level 0-4. The results of these tests are displayed below the pictogram, an ‘X’ is used when the glove hasn’t met the minimum level. Tests and levels for each are as follows:

  • a. Resistance to flammability - Based on the length of time the material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed (performance level 0-4)
    After Burn Time (Sec) After Glow Time (Sec) Level
    < 2 < 5 4
    < 3 < 25 3
    < 10 < 120 2
    < 20 Infinity 1
  • b. Contact heat resistance - Based on the temperature range (100-500oC) at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds (performance level 0-4)
    Temp After 15s (℃) Level
    500 4
    350 3
    250 2
    100 1
  • c. Convective heat resistance - Based on the length of time the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat from a flame (performance level 0-4)
    Seconds Level
    < 18 4
    < 10 3
    < 7 2
    < 4 1
  • d. Radiant heat resistance - Based on the length of time the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat when exposed to a radiant heat source (performance level 0-4)
    Seconds Level
    < 150 4
    < 90 3
    < 30 2
    < 5 1
  • e. Resistance to small splashes of molten metal - The number of molten metal drops required to heat the glove sample to a given level (performance level 0-4)
    Number of Drops Level
    > 35 4
    > 25 3
    > 15 2
    > 5 1
  • f. Resistance to large splashes of molten metal - The weight of molten metal required to cause smoothing or pin-holing across a simulated skin placed directly behind the glove sample (performance level 0-4)
    Gram Level
    200 4
    120 3
    60 2
    30 1
