JUPITER 5FLong GORE-TEX textile firefighting glove
The permanently waterproof GORE-TEX fabric Jupiter 5F gloves for firefighters are impress with their outstanding dexterity and best protective properties. The high-quality, fire-resistant Aramid/LenzingTM FR outer fabric offers excellent fire resistance, the coated Kevlar® knuckle protector provides effective protection against abrasion and heat. The palm made of Nomex®/Kevlar® with PROmarble coating (granite-silicone-carbon) offers maximum protection and grip on smooth and wet surfaces and boasts the best abrasion resistance. Due to the revolutionary, multilayer cut-resistant lining made of Kevlar®/Inox/LCP, the Jupiter 5F boasts high performance protection against cuts (palm: Performance level 5F, back of palm: Performance level 4) and sharp edges as well as additional heat protection on the back of the palm. The sophisticated, adjustable single-strap system is used to ensure secure fixing, which enables the glove to be worn over a jacket (Jupiter 5F, long cuff) or under a jacket (Jupiter-E 5F, knitted cuff). All mechanical and thermal maximum values were achieved both in a new condition and after pretreatment consisting of 20 washes at 60 °C. The inner lining is incorporated and the insert is attached and connected to the outer shell in line with the proven method patented by ESKA in order to permanently prevent the lining from being inadvertently pulled out. The anatomical, layered 3D cut is adjusted to the natural posture of our hands, to guarantee the best possible fit and freedom of movement. We use only European materials, which undergo strict quality control in Austria. The gloves for firefighters are available in red and black and in versions with a long cuff (model Jupiter 5F) or with a 100% Kevlar® knitted cuff (model Jupiter-E 5F).
