All or our gloves are tested and certified by accredited labs according to the European EN standards for PPE (2016/425 regulation), including standard such as EN ISO 21420, EN 388, EN 407, EN 511 or EN 659 to name a few.
Also, when developing new products for specific projects or tenders, it is possible to discuss which performance levels should be achieved according to the defined standards. Frequently, other tests are required as well to obtain certain fabric properties as well. During the course of the project, this is closely monitored by us.
Fabrics, textiles and technologies
Building a glove requires a thoughtful selection of the right resources that will ultimately meet expectations in terms of performance, fit and design. Both for our stock items and for project-related developments, this involves a very diverse range of materials that are sourced worldwide.
The search for new fabrics and technologies is an ongoing process and takes place both online and during trade fairs.
- Leather such as goatskin, cowhide, …
- Synthetic leather / suede such as AX Materials
- Aramid fabrics such as Kevlar® and Nomex®
- Thermal insulation layers such as Thinsulate™
- Membranes such as HDry®
This suede was co-developed with AX Materials, and is one of the most durable synthetic suedes currently on the market. It has an extremely high abrasion resistance but still has a very supple character enabling very high dexterity.
Another co-development project with AX Materials, this suede stands out by its lightweight appearance and yet durable performance. The nature of DexSuede, which creates a second skin and thus allows for a customised finger construction, makes gloves equipped with this material stand out due to their extremely high finger sensitivity.
