Southcombe firefighting gloves

January 25th, 2010 / By: / Advanced Textiles, New Products

Southcombe Brothers Ltd. recently announced that the Indianapolis, Ind., Fire Department has purchased nearly 1,700 pairs of the company’s Firemaster® IV Kovenex® gloves, after months of rigorous testing. The gloves combine Kovenex’s inherent flame-, tear- and cut-resistant properties with Southcombe’s patented water- and chemical-resistant Pyrohide® to maintain the product’s NFPA 1971-2007 certification and EN659 rating, as well as to increase the gloves’ dexterity and performance and user safety. The Indianapolis fire department personnel tested five different gloves for donning and doffing, fit and functionality, as part of a comprehensive nine-month evaluation.
