Portwest AC01 Blade Cut Resistant Chainmail Glove

If you work in a fast-paced food processing setting, you know the importance of protecting your hands from potentially nasty cuts and incisions. The Portwest AC01 Blade Cut Resistant Chainmail Glove offers a far higher level of protection than a standard fabric glove. Manufactured with grease, oil and fat resistant stainless steel, blades have a much lower chance of entering through the tightknit metal, meaning that your hands are protected in the event of a slip or accident.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Chainmail glove

This glove is ambidextrous, meaning it will fit both the left or right hand. Please note that this product is sold as a single glove, not a pair. 

Which Size Is Right For Me?

Finding the right size for you couldn't be easier. Simply measure the length, circumference and width of your hand (ignoring the thumb area) as demonstrated in this diagram below. When you have your measurements, simply consult the sizing chart beneath to find the right size for you. In the event that your measurement falls on a sizing boundary, we recommend you select a size up for optimum comfort and dexterity.

How to find the correct hand measurement for you

Medium (Size 8) 182mm 203mm
Large (Size 9) 192mm 229mm
Extra Large (Size 10) 204mm 254mm

Blade Cut Protection

Portwest AC01 Gloves are EN1082-1 European Standard certified for use with hand knives. They are made with high-quality, stainless steel chainmail, making them incredibly cut and blade resistant. Chainmail is a series of metal rings locked together to form a protective sheet.

Detail of the Chainmail Gloves
The AC01 Gloves are made from high-quality chainmail

As metal does not bend or tear like fabric does, chainmail protects against punctures, cuts and incisions by blocking the tip of a sharp implement before it can get close enough to pierce the skin. This makes them the optimum hand-wear in abattoirs, food preparation environments and blade handling settings.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Made with high-quality stainless steel chainmail 
  • Excellent cut and incision protection due to tightly woven chainmail ringlets
  • Easy to clean with hot, soapy water
  • Stainless steel is inherently bacteria resistant 
  • Ambidextrous glove allowing for interchangeable use on right and left hand
  • Available in four different sizes

Who Should Be Using Chainmail Gloves?

Anyone working in food preparation should be using gloves that offer a high level of blade cut protection. Please see the list of suitable environments and professions to see if you could benefit:

How Hygienic Is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is a non-porous material that will not harbour bacteria and is nice and simple to clean. Its hygienic properties make it the perfect material for use in sanitary safety glove manufacturing.

Stainless steel is also super simple to wash. Simply scrub the glove with hot, soapy water. 

What Are Portwest AC01 Gloves Made From?

Portwest AC01 Chainmail Gloves are made from stainless steel that is spun into rings and laced together to create a protective layer of chainmail.

This is a sturdy glove that will not let you down. Worth paying the correct price for a quality product. Plenty of cheaper versions online but this one is the real deal.
