he short PBI firefighting glove SIGA-E PBI 5F consists of full PBI protection on the backhand and palm. The durable PBI fibre ensures highest thermal protection and comfort and makes the glove extremely light. The anatomical, fire-resistant knuckle protector ensures absolute shock and impact protection and protects against exposure to heat and injuries. The PBI Gold palm with PROmarble coating provides maximum protection and grip on smooth and wet surfaces. Due to the revolutionary and cut-resistant lining made of Kevlar®/inox/LCP protects the glove against pointed objects and sharp edges (level 4F). The GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® Grip insert, Phönix 5F protects the fireman/firewoman against water, chemicals, oil, fuel, blood and viruses and also offers maximum breathability. 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 100 % Kevlar® knitted cuff provides a secure fixing under a jacket. All mechanical and thermal maximum values were achieved both in a new condition and after pretreatment consisting of 20 washes at 60 °C. 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 fire-fighters are available in versions with a 100% Kevlar® knitted cuff (Siga-E PBI 5F model) or with a long cuff (Siga PBI 5F model).
