Vibration 3 levels of accuracy

Vibration: 3 levels of accuracy

Vibration reduction to reduce the risk of HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome) is a complicated topic. There are many aspects to consider when choosing the correct glove for you tool. At Eureka we like to use the visualisation that tool vibrations are akin to the ocean – large swells, waves, and ripples all representing the dimensions and complexity. The most impacting factors being tool vibration simplified as RPM (revolutions per minute), rotational or impacting vibrations, working material, environmental temperature, and environmental stress factors such as ambient noise level.

Accounting for these factors determines the level of accuracy when choosing the correct glove. The higher the potential vibration exposure, the higher the level of accuracy is recommended.

At Eureka we have categorised the selection accuracy into 3 levels:

Accuracy Level 1 (Lowest):

15,000- 20,000 RPM. Does your tool rotate faster or slower than this range? Impact Vibration range for faster and high energy impacting tools, Flexi range for slower.

Accuracy Level 2 (Medium):

Using the Eureka Tool-Type dot chart along with the Eureka Vibration Tool Acceleration Overview (available on customer page only) for determining the appropriate glove.

Accuracy Level 3 (Highest):

On-site measurements and in-depth analysis. At this level, our experts will visit your premises and measure the exact “in-action” vibration exposure to record the most accurate data. This data is then relayed back to our HQ where it is analysed and a full report per tool with glove recommendations is generated.

For odd jobs and occasional vibrating tool exposure, accuracy level 1 or 2 to select a glove model may suffice. For repeated work, industrial use, exposure over long periods, accuracy level 3 is strongly recommended. If in doubt, please contact us at Eureka and we can assist you in selecting the appropriate protection.

Ocean Plastics & Sustainability Efforts

Eureka Safety continues its efforts towards a sustainable future into 2022 with the introduction of recycled ocean plastics into the majority of its assortment. This journey begins by replacing small parts of non-performance-critical components.

Eureka Safety Sustainability & Environmental Efforts

  • Elimination of toxic chemicals & solvents in production process and product
  • No use of poisons (biocides) for odor reduction / “anti-odor”
  • Complete switch from plastic to paper packaging
  • 30% improvement in coating durability (2022) for lower life cycle impact
  • Production facility is BSCI social compliant certified
  • Lightweight products = less resources consumed
  • Volume maximization in transport & storage
  • Salesforce travelling with electric vehicles & free charging for office staff
  • Outgoing goods delivery CO2 compensated
  • Headquarters & warehouse heated and powered by solar and bio energy (pictured)
  • Digital focus: training, meetings, and the reduction of paper consumption


One step closer to Carbon Neutrality

Eureka Sweden’s outbound transport goes carbon neutral!

From our switch to paper packaging over plastic bags, paper hooks over plastic, efforts in renewable energy and biodiversity at our HQ; we at Eureka always work to produce high performance, value adding products with an as-small-as-possible environmental footprint.

Starting already from January 1st this year, we took yet another step. The CO2 emissions caused by the outgoing transports are now fully compensated for by an accredited external company.

Eureka Safety and COVID-19

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues into its 3rd year with the omicron variant spreading fast, Eureka is taking stricter measures for the safety and wellbeing of its employees.

Over the next few weeks please expect some delays on orders placed from our Sweden warehouse.

We thank you for your patience.

Stay safe!
