EN511 standard measures cold protection. This standard applies to any gloves to protect the hands against convective and contact cold down to -50 degrees Celsius The pictogram will be accompanied by a 3 -digit code
• The first digit is for resistance to convective cold (performance level 0 -4)
• The second digit is for resistance to contact cold (performance level 0 -4)The higher performance level the better insulating capacity.
• The third digit is for permeability to water (performance level 0 or 1)
0 = water penetration after 30 minutes
1 = no water penetration after 30 minutes.
Where not suitable or tested an “X” is marked
