Youngstown’s FR Hi-Dex Glove offers multihazard protection while maintaining excellent dexterity and comfort. This glove was developed with lineworkers who were seeking the most dexterous glove they could get that still met their company standards of Cut Level A3 with FR/AR properties.
To achieve this, we use a single-layer palm made of flexible, durable goat-grain leather. The entire interior of the glove is then lined with Kevlar fiber. The leather and Kevlar combination is sewn into an ergonomic, pre-curved, 3D pattern for superior fit and dexterity. The result is a glove that is lab tested to show Cut Level A3, Puncture Level 4, flame resistance and an arc rating of 27 cal/cm². FR Hi-Dex Gloves are lineworker tested and approved.
