A completely newly developed concept for the protection of the backhand-thumb area. The thumb is the part of the backhand that is first exposed to heat during fire-fighting operations. That’s why ESKA® developed a unique system – the Thumb FR Protector. This proprietary invention, whose patent has already been filed, protects the wearer in the backhand-thumb area against extreme heat, water vapour, shock & impact. The additional protection was conceptualized in a way that leaves the movement of the thumb unrestricted.
