What does EN455 mean?

Many business owners, especially in the care sector, are consistently looking at the price they pay for a box of vinyl gloves, often unaware that whilst the price per box may look competitive, the glove may only be meeting British Standard EN455 part 1. Therefore, staff could be disposing of gloves that may have holes or be ripped. This is worth checking - our gloves pass the basic test on holes (part 1), the test against ripping and wastage (part 2) and part 3, which is the test against allergies.  At Newline we only supply tested, quality products which our customers can use with confidence.
