(R)Evolution of the fire fighter glove

At A+A fair 2011 SEIZ presents in hall 4, C 39 as a world novelty the Fire-Fighter EVOLUTION safety glove which, due to a series of innovations, sets new standards of hand protection. For first time in a glove a special mix of granite is used as well as a ceramic coating which up to now had been used only in the astronautics. The combination of these high-tech materials with a knitted fabric made of KEVLAR ® and fiber glass result in a degree of cut resistance which outscores highest levels known. Finally SEIZ added a Gore-Tex® membrane to establish a profile of properties which resets the benchmark for fire fighter gloves. The extreme power of performance can be detected in the robustness and mechanical strength of the glove which lie far beyond the highest degrees for cut, stitch, wear and tear resistance measured by EN norms. „After 8,000 wear cycles our EVOLUTION glove looked as anew“, summarises Rainer Seiz the abrasion resistance. In a similar way the special ceramic coating turns out to be extremely resistant to flame, heat and abrasion. Thanks to the ergonomic design plus a double raffling at the wrist the new fire fighter glove by SEIZ has a perfect fit which is increased by the tight grip of the long gauntlet made of NOMEX® fastened by a Velcro strap. The optics in the futuristic techno honeycomb design underline the new safety and wear comfort à la SEIZ and make the EVOLUTION glove look like hand protection from another star.
