FALCON - The firefighters gloves
Even in risky situations shape and design of the glove is intended to meet all requirements, at rough work as well as operating small switch-keys without taking them off.
The glove is designed like skiing gloves because both gloves need good design and flexibility. For a safe and strong grip the glove is anatomically shaped and has extensible gussets on the knuckles. These factors keep the insulating air inside in order to protect the back hand, and to give more flexibility. Sensitive areas of the glove are reinforced and seams that might cause blisters after a longtime use are covered inside the glove.
The palm of the glove is made of cow grain leather because it is a very strong and durable leather.The back hand does not need such extremly high mechanical performance but is more
exposed to intensive radiant heat. Elk leather is more porous, and therefore protecting better against both – heat and cold. The use of elk leather for the back hand and gussets
between the fingers provides extremely high flexibility.
In order to protect the glove against soaking but also to keep it breathable an inner glove made out of Porelle® is inserted. The glove is lined with DuPont™ Nomex®, sufficient even under arctic conditions.
The gloves are tested and certified according to EN 659.
