Flash

Firefighter gloves according to EN 659:2003+A1:2008

 

The FLASH model is a firefighter's protective glove developed for firefighting operations where the focus is on technical assistance.

 

The glove has a safe and pleasant wearing comfort due to its fireproof, black cow grain leather. In addition, the Needlona® heat protection felt acts as thermal insulation and protects the glove from thermal stress.

FLASH shows its strengths especially when technical assistance is the main focus: robust, heat-resistant grain leather provides optimum protection against mechanical risks and guarantees a long service life.
