Design & Construction:
Glove shall be a gunn cut pattern with wing thumb and wrap around index finger. Lining is completely sewn S.E.F. Modacrylic, laminated to Gore RT7100 Glove Barrier Fabric. This creates a strong thermally stable, non-cracking/flaking one-piece liner/barrier system. All seams are sealed with a DuPontâ silicone sealant, which ensures that liquids do not come in contact with the hand or hand area. The one-piece lining is permanently sewn to the glove shell in the area of the fingertips and wrist. This proven attachment method eliminates the opportunity for lining pullouts & creates a uniform, inside lining even after repeated use in fire fighting conditions. The glove body shall extend 2” above the wrist crease & shall have a shirred elastic snuggler at the wrist.
