Firefighting Rescue Gloves & Glove Holders
Firefighters put their lives on the line every day they go on a call. Besides firemen and women’s turnout gear, one of the most important pieces of their firefighter uniform is the fire rescue glove. Over the years, fireman glove designs have evolved, along with technology and fire causing agents.
Fire rescue gloves must not only provide protection from flames and heat, they must allow for a comfortable fit and retain hand dexterity while being worn. There are a variety of different styles of rescue gloves, including Extrication Gloves, Barrier Gloves, Rope Gloves, Cowhide Gloves and First Responder Gloves.
During the extrication of victims from accidents, first responders need specialty gloves to protect them from shards of glass, warped metal and other possible puncture threats. Extrication gloves allow for a full range of movement and impressive dexterity, while allowing them to work in tight spaces and prevent cuts or abrasions.
