The Olymp 5F textile work glove impresses with best heat and flame resistance as well as a high degree of freedom of movement. The high-quality FR Aramid outer fabric with ProCoat silicone-carbon coating provides high abrasion and heat protection. Ergonomically designed and fire resistant knuckle protector protects against impact, shock and heat. Stretch knuckle protectors provide ideal protection from impact and shock while still offering maximum freedom of movement. Abrasion-resistant Nomex®/Kevlar® palm with PROmarble coating ensures maximum protection and grip, even on slippery and wet surfaces. The flame-resistant cut protection lining made of Kevlar®/Inox/LCP protects the firefighter from pointed objects and sharp edges (performance level 5F). Thanks to the GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® Grip Insert, the Olymp 5F provides a secure barrier against moisture, chemicals, oil, gasoline, blood and viruses – while maintaining maximum breathability. The insertion of the lining, the fixation of the insert and the connection with the outer shell are made according to the proven process patented by ESKA to permanently prevent unwanted pulling out of the lining. The sophisticated, width-adjustable 2-strap system allows perfect fixation over the jacket. The revolutionary new Flap Cuff solution allows an ideal fixation of the glove to be worn over the jacket. All maximum mechanical and thermal values are certified both when new and after a pre-treatment of 20 washes at 60° C. The anatomical, layered 3D cut is adapted to the natural posture of the hand to guarantee the best possible fit and freedom of movement. We rely exclusively on European materials, which are subject to strict quality control in Austria.
