An important part of the police and private security equipment are cut- resistant and slash-resistant gloves.
In order to choose the appropriate cut-resistant gloves we must take into account a number of factors that will determine which gloves to buy. Among these these factors you must consider the place where you work, the profession, the type of usual operations or the environment and its temperature.
Talking about the protection levels of cut-resistant gloves, on what do the different levels depend? Currently it is the regulation of occupational risks on individual protection EN 388 that evaluates four aspects of the materials of which they are manufactured:
– Abrasion resistance. Levels from 1 to 4
– Resistance to cutting by blade. Levels from 1 to 5
– Resistance to tearing. Levels from 1 to 4
– Resistance to perforation. Levels from 1 to 4
Depending on the resistance that the gloves obtain to different tests, one level or another is assigned, with 5 being the highest level of protection and 1 being the lowest. Although this regulation is changing and from now on it will be counted from A to F, with F being the highest level of protection and A being the lowest.

Police and security guards demand cut and slash resistant gloves that allow sensitivity, with high tact, when it comes to frisking, handling weapons or police equipment. A policeman or a watchman shouldn’t lose touch or tact of their hands at the time of holding a gun or a revolver respectively, handle the shackles or frisking. Cut resistant gloves should allow proper frisking.
The next step is to see if they need thinner cut-resistant gloves for frisking, for example, or thicker cut-resistant gloves for riot troops that have a high risk of facing attacks with catanas, knives, or similar.
Security forces often face attacks with knives, easier to acquire than firearms. In addition, in searches they can find sharp objects and it is convenient to wear gloves that protect their hands from these hazards. Since gloves worn in riots and gloves worn when driving motorcycles do not have to be the same and meet different requirements, Insigpol recommends the following cut-resistant gloves:
Glove with textile support HPPE thread high resistance. Glove with high quality elastic nitrile coating on wrist, with excellent touch and resistance. Withouth stitches. Black and gray colors. It is a glove that procetcs from impacts and thick liquids such as paint, oils, etc., which makes it ideal for anti-riot and security guards that often face the risk of knife attacks.
