RICOTEST is qualified for testing and certifying protection gloves for professional and sporting use.

As PPE, gloves must be exposed to specific assessment tests before placing onto the market and used in the workplace. The reason for this is easily understood, as hands are the main tool in many professional fields. We can test the performance of any type of protection gloves: from gloves against thermal hazard to those against cutting, gloves for welders and firefighters.
