Just introduced is Roll Cage Welding and Rigging Gloves from Lincoln Electric.
The gloves are designed not only for welding and rigging, but also for cutting and grinding, according to company officials.
The gloves are constructed with fire-resistant cowhide and sewn with Kevlar thread, then enhanced with segmented, high-temperature-resistant silicon pads for knuckle protection. The finger-structure design enhances grip and durability, officials explain.
The gloves offer numerous safety features, including a special, protective overlay on the palm that reinforces high-wear areas; an inside lining that helps protect against cuts; and a longer-length cuff that guards wrists and forearms against heat and sparks, company officials said. Fire-resistant Velcro wrist guards secure the gloves, while allowing for quick removal.
