Standard EN511
Gloves Providing Protection from Cold

Standard EN511This standard only applies to gloves that protect hands against convective and contact cold down to -50°C. Gloves which show this pictogram must have achieved at least a performance level 1 for abrasion and tear under EN388. Protection from the cold is graded using 3 criteria listed underneath. The higher the level the better the thermal capabilities of the glove. The testing criteria and levels are as follows:

  • a. Resistance to convective cold (performance level 0 - 4)
    Thermal Insulation (ITR) in m2?/W Level
    0.30 ITR 4
    0.22 ITR > 0.30 3
    0.15 ITR > 0.22 2
    0.10 ITR > 0.15 1
  • b. Resistance to contact cold (performance level 0 - 4)
    Thermal Insulation (ITR) in m2?/W Level
    0.30 ITR 4
    0.22 ITR > 0.30 3
    0.15 ITR > 0.22 2
    0.10 ITR > 0.15 1
  • c. Permeability by water (0 or 1)
    Measured as a pass or fail, if water does not penetrate the glove after 30 minutes then it passes.
