Uses of the Firemaster Alpha Gloves

The Alpha Gloves have been designed to stand up to all the obstacles in the life of a firefighter. They are especially suitable for structural firefighting and technical rescue operations, extrications and training exercises.

Features of the Alpha Gloves

  • Perfect alternative to leather firefighting gloves
  • Suitable for structural firefighting and rescue operations
  • FR silicone coated Kevlar fabric on the palm
  • Woven Nomex fabric on the back and knitted Kevlar cuff
  • Moisture vapour permeable membrane for waterproof quality
  • Machine washable for easy maintenance

Tough Kevlar Construction

The Alpha Gloves feature curved fingers and box-end fingertips with thumb and knuckle articulations to enhance comfort on the job while providing exceptional levels of dexterity. For extra protection, the outer shell is made from a flame retardant, silicone-coated Kevlar fabric on the palm for abrasion resistance and grip, and a Nomex fabric on the back of the hand with felted Kevlar.

Waterproof and Breathable

For a secure fit, these gloves feature a knitted Kevlar wristlet cuff, providing a perfect fit around the wrist and compatibility with tunic sleeves. This intelligently designed cuff also prevents the ingress of debris, boosting protection and comfort. A seam-sealed moisture vapour permeable membrane guarantees that these gloves are waterproof, while also breathable to prevent overheating.
