Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
Crucial heat and flame protection for the hands that retains its properties, even after exposure to fire and heavy use.
Hands can come in contact with pathogens found in blood and other body fluids in an emergency. GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® membranes offer exceptional penetration protection.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® membranes are durably waterproof as well as penetration-resistant to various liquid chemicals.
The breathability of GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® glove inserts is essential for reducing heat stress and allowing the gloves to dry out quickly.
The membrane works like a filter so that 99% of harmful particulates cannot penetrate the gloves.
The inside layers of gloves GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® inserts are constructed with Gore Grip technology. They do not slip and are easier to don and doff. This gives a strong, secure and precise grip on equipment.
*For gloves with Gore Grip technology
Improved finger flexibility, better feel, and better fit result in superior tactility. This makes it easier to keep gloves on while getting the job done, improving safety.
Wearing the right protective gloves, as a structural fire fighter, is undoubtedly just as crucial as wearing the right protective garments and footwear.
Protective gloves with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® product technology offer a complete solution in hand protection without sacrificing the comfort, dexterity and tactility essential in emergencies.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® Gloves offer heat and flame protection, which is crucial for fire fighting situations, as well as being a reliable barrier against pathogens found in blood and body fluids. Additionally, the gloves are penetration-resistant to liquid chemicals including battery acid, hydraulic fluids, petroleum, concentrated chlorine solutions, fire extinguishing foam, and other contaminated liquids.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® membranes are durably waterproof and breathable – even after contamination and heat exposure. The wearer’s hands remain protected and comfortably dry.
Protective gloves won't protect if they need to be removed to get the job done. GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® glove inserts combine maximum flexibility with maximum protection, so wearers don't have to compromise safety, dexterity, or comfort while hard at work.
