PAC FIRE’s new SMP structural fire glove was launched late last year into the Australian market. It features a new Crosstech glove insert with X-Trafit product technology for superior tactility and dexterity.
The new Crosstech glove insert provides durable protection against blood and body fluids and against EN659/NFPA chemicals and other contaminated liquids in combination with waterproofness and breathability.
A new fibreglass knuckle protector is added to reduce compression burns. The new Kevlar thermal liner makes for easy donning and doffing and the glove has the ability to stand up to multiple washes without shrinking or becoming stiff. Eska’s liner retention system virtually eliminates the liner being pulled out. It has an extra wide wrist opening standard in the larger sizes to assist for easier on/off. The glove is currently AS/NZ 2161.6 Level 3 certified and is in the process of being certified to AS/NZ 2161.6:2014 edition. The new standard is designed to allow manufacturers to develop gloves with greater dexterity and higher protection thresholds.
