Traffigloves are the originators of the colour-coded safety glove system.
The TraffiSystem makes it easy to identify the level of cut protection required, based on the EN388 test for cut resistance, even at a glance or from a distance.
The colour coded TraffiSystem is an innovative, proven and easy way to ensure your workforce is wearing an appropriate level of protection for the task in hand. The traffic safety glove colour coding (RED, AMBER, GREEN) relates to the safety glove’s performance on the EN388 test for cut resistance.
The RED safety gloves are low cut resistance. The red color signifies a warning to the worker to ensure they are wearing enough cut protection for the task they are completing.
The AMBER gloves are a medium cut protection, which makes them an ideal choice for second fix construction trades, mechanical and electrical trades, steel fixing and handling materials with sharp edges.
The GREEN work gloves are higher cut performance, making them the right choice for higher cut risk tasks such as handling sheet metal. The colour GREEN provides the internationally-recognised confirmation that it is ‘safe to go’ when there is a higher risk of cuts.
