Types of Heat Resistant Gloves

As mentioned above, there are many types of heat resistant gloves, with each one suited to specific industries or tasks. Here is a list of some of the most common and popular types of heat protective gloves:

  • Low heat resistant gloves offer resistance to lower levels of heat and generally offer abrasion or cut resistance as well.
  • High heat resistant gloves protect workers from extreme levels of heat. These can differ depending on whether heat is dry or moist, flame or spark.
  • Welding gauntlets provide workers with protection against flames and sparks when welding, but can also offer the likes of abrasion and vibration resistance for specialist tasks. Different levels of dexterity are also available when purchasing welding gauntlets.
  • Fire retardant gloves offer maximum protection from flames, and will not melt, drip or deteriorate in high levels of heat.
  • Foundry heat beater gloves offer exceptional protection from heat and are specifically designed for melting or casting metals.


Who Uses Heat Resistant Gloves?

Heat protective gloves are used by the likes of welders, factory workers, engineers, glass makers, blacksmiths, iron mongers, inject moulders, and mechanics. However, there are a number of industries that use heat resistant gloves who you may not expect, such as hairdressers, brewers, food producers, caterers, chefs and laboratory workers. 


Regulations for Heat Resistant Gloves

As with all the PPE hand protection available online at Protec Direct, our heat resistant gloves all adhere to the relevant regulations and standards to ensure they are safe and suitable for use. These include:

  • EN 407 – This European Standard concerns gloves which give protection from thermal hazards. This means that the likes of resistance to flammability, resistance to contact heat, resistance to convective heat, resistance to radiant heat and resistance to splashes of molten metal must all be displayed on a pictogram on the product’s packaging.
  • EN 12477 – This European Standard describes the level of protection that PPE gloves are meant to provide to the hand and wrist when used for welding or similar tasks. It takes into account testing from EN 407 and EN 388 (gloves that protect from mechanical risks).
  • EN 420 – This European Standard defines requirements for the construction of protective gloves, whether they are fit for purpose and their safety.


Employers’ Responsibilities

Employers have responsibilities when it comes to ensuring their staff are safe at work, and this means supplying them with any necessary personal protective equipment, including heat resistant gloves if they’re carrying out relevant tasks. This is bound in law by the following regulation:

  • Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (2002) – Employers have a duty to supply the correct PPE to keep staff safe from risks at work, and must ensure that employees are trained on how to use it.
