Heavy impact work can have a significant affect, especially when working with vibration for long hours. Buying the right quality gloves in this environment is not only helpful for long term impact damage, but for the comfort of your working day generally.
This EN standard defines the requirement for gloves to protect against Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome by reducing the transmission of vibrations to the wearers palm and fingers.
The transmission ratio of vibration is measured for two frequency ranges: Medium frequency (31.5 Hz to 200 Hz) High frequency (200 Hz to 1250 Hz) Gloves do not provide significant attentuation at frequencies below 150 Hz, and some gloves may amplify vibration in this range. To conform to this standard gloves must not amplify vibrations with a frequency 31.5 Hz to 200 Hz, and must reduce the level of vibration by 40% at higher frequencies (200 Hz to 1250 Hz) Results may be written as shown below:
TRM (Transmission Ratio, Medium frequency range) = 0.x TRH (Transmission Ratio, High frequency range) = 0.y
