Glove improves dexterity and heat resistance

 fireguard_glove  
March 30, 2011 – Certified to the 2007 edition of the NFPA 1971 standard, the FireGuard 3DX is the first all-leather glove with both a 3-D forchette construction and the Crosstech insert with Direct Grip technology.

The premium-grain leather is puncture-resistant and slip-resistant, improving protection and grip in wet or dry conditions. Crosstech glove inserts with Direct Grip technology feature a combined thermal liner and moisture barrier that improves touch, feel, and fit.

The glove’s construction provides heat resistance for the back of the hand – protection that exceeds the NFPA 1971 requirement for compressive heat resistance testing with dry and wet pre-conditioning. The advanced forchette pattern improves dexterity by minimizing seams at the fingertips, joints, and knuckles. Expandable patches on the fingers and knuckles improve flexibility by stretching when the hand is clenched. In addition, the ergonomic design of the gloves allows the hands to rest in a naturally curved position.
