Youngstown FR Arc Rated Leather Work Glove 12-3265-60
Arc flash gloves work gloves are relevant for any worker who is potentially exposed to an electric arc generating a heat flux of greater than 2 cal/cm2. They also make sense for workers in less extreme environments who may face hazards such as sparks or flames. Part of being arc rated means that the gloves will NOT Drip, Melt or Ignite when exposed to these hazards. Most of our arc rated work glove designs feature goatskin leather. Leather inherently performs well in arc testing due the nature of the hides themselves. However, not all leather is created equal. Thin split leathers can be rated very low. At Youngstown Glove Co., we achieve higher arc levels due to the thickness and quality of the hides we use. Additionally, the patterns and thread also enhance the performance in the third party arc tests.
