Ironclad recently announced the release of the first glove in the world to pass NFPA 2112:2018 certification for flash fire protection. Designed in partnership with DuPont Personal Protective Equipment, the Heatworx Heavy Duty FR is an extremely advanced glove, featuring a molded silicone rubber palm and a shell made with 100% DuPont Kevlar. Designed for maximum dexterity plus the ability to handle hot items up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit (315 degrees Celsius), the Heatworx Heavy Duty FR delivers complete heat and flame protection in one glove.
This glove was developed in response to a desperate need for an NFPA 2112-certified glove in the safety market. Workers in hazardous locations that are at risk for lethal flash fire exposure are required to wear FR garments certified to NFPA 2112:2018 for protection in the event of a flash fire incident. Up until now, they had no options for flash fire certified hand protection. Now they can be fully protected with the Heatworx Heavy Duty FR glove.
