Protecting workers with Hyflex gloves

To protect employees from workplace cut hazards, Stihl selects world´s first safety glove to meet the requirements of EN 388 cut level 3 in 18 gauge thinness; this innovation is made possible by new advanced fiber technology that delivers the highest ever cut-resistance for industrial safety gloves combined with high comfort and maximum dexterity.

Safety gloves composed of innovative high performance fiber are helping Stihl, the world´s leading producer of heavy duty power chain saws, focus on continuing to develop equipment that makes cuts when and where they are needed, while protecting employees´ hands from accidental cuts during manufacturing operations.

During a recent review of safety gloves for employees at the company´s manufacturing plant in Wil, Switzerland, it was determined gloves meeting EN 388 cut level 3 offered required protection. After extensive testing of a total of 13 different gloves, Stihl selected the HyFlex 11-518, highly cut-resistant safety glove, as by far the thinnest, lightest, most dexterous and most comfortable solution available in this protection class. The HyFlex 11-518 glove meets the requirements of cut level 3 according to EN 388 and yet it is relatively thin for maximum dexterity. The glove is breathable, abrasion resistant, and has a thin polyurethane coating on the palm side for optimum tactility.

The HyFlex 11-518 is made by Ansell, a global manufacturer of safety protection solutions for manufacturing, medical and various other industries. It is considered the world´s first 18-gauge safety glove to meet the requirements of EN 388 cut level 3.
