The short PBI firefighter glove Siga-E PBI 5F has a full PBI protection on the upper and palm side and offers maximum sensitivity. The durable PBI fiber provides maximum thermal protection and comfort and makes the Siga-E PBI 5F extremely lightweight. The new anatomical, fire-resistant 3D knuckle protector provides absolute impact and shock protection and also protects against heat exposure and injuries.DEr protector fits perfectly to the shape of the knuckles and contributes high wearing comfort. The PBI Gold + PROmarble coating provides maximum protection and grip, even on slippery and wet surfaces. The revolutionary multi-layer cut protection lining made of Kevlar®/Inox/LCP protects the glove from sharp objects and sharp edges (highest performance level 5F). The GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® Grip Insert protects the firefighter from wetness, chemicals, oil, gasoline, blood and viruses – while maintaining maximum breathability. The incorporation of the inner lining, the fixation of the insert and the connection with the outer shell are carried out according to the proven process patented by ESKA to permanently prevent unwanted extraction of the lining. The 100% Kevlar® knit cuff allows for optimal fixation under the jacket. 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. The firefighter glove is available with a 100% Kevlar® knit cuff (model Siga-E PBI 5F PLUS) or a long cuff (model Siga PBI 5F PLUS).
