FIREMANS SHIELD DRAGON FIRE X-GLOVE
These Dragon Fire X Gloves from Fireman's Shield are your multi-purpose answer for durable, flexible firefighting gloves. They are an all-in-one solution that provides resistance to heat, cold, puncture, abrasions, chemicals and bloodborne pathogens.
Their construction assures extra protection in the most crucial places - on the knuckles, palms and fingertips. The top layer is a crucically wrapped with double Kevlar stitching, and the Kovenex blend thermal liner offers a level of unsurpassed heat blocking. The inner liner features a thermal urethane vapor barrier that has been specifically designed to outperform other gloves in fire service.
Both back and front of the glove are constructed with ultra premium Stay-Soft® top-grain Italian cow leather. The special tanning process perfected by Italian craftsmen over the centuries allow their heavy duty leather to be water repellent, excellent heat resistant and fire retardant. The leather refuses to harden or stiffen after repeated wet/dry cycles. Knuckle and finger tip areas are further re-enforced with the same top-grain cow leather. Heavy duty top grain pig leather is used for the fourchettes/sidewalls area of the middle and ring fingers. Cross section of the palm heavy-wear area is further padded with top-grain pig leather.
We selected a thermo polyurethane barrier after a long and extensive study. Thermo polyurethanes are a special class of polymer material with many useful properties, including extreme elasticity, high melting point, and resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. As you can see the comparison chart, the thermo polyurethane barrier exhibits many unique features over PTFE, the other common barrier used in the fire industry.
7oz Kovenex. Patented Kovenex performance fabrics are flexible, durable and offer cut and sharps protection in addition to protection from heat and flame. No other thermal barrier on the market provides as much heat protection while maintaining a high level of dexterity. Their stitch-bonding process improves tear strength and abrasion resistance, making Kovenex an excellent thermal barrier/liner for firefighting gloves.
These gloves are designed not to have "memory", meaning that they will bend and stretch when you need them to but always return to a static shape when your task is complete. The X-Glove is rated higher than NFPA standard for liquid, chemical, and bloodborne pathogen penetration, and their melting point is well above NFPA required levels.
