Pro-Tech 8 Titan

 

The rugged Pro-Tech 8 Titan glove can satisfy any firefighter’s craving for dexterity, flexibility, grip, comfort and fit. Whether on a truck or an engine, Pro-Tech 8 Titan will efficiently handle every fire ground task you are faced with as well as basic motor vehicle extrication.

The varied multi-layer design, using durable knitted high performance fibers, allows incredibly fast, soft and comfortable break in with thermal protection that actually increases after washing. The gloves will remain soft and flexible after use. The inner liner is 100% knitted Nomex® and the Titan is also fully lined with 100% Kevlar, which provides much greater cut resistance than leather alone.

Pro-Tech 8 Titan's unique multi-layer knuckle guard system reinforces protection in an area that is the most vulnerable to radiant heat burns. (see knuckle guard photo below)

The Long Cuff "wristlet" style features our unique Kevlar® elastic cuff band which prevents debris from entering and eliminates glove slip off. At the vulnerable glove-sleeve interface, Pro-Tech 8 provides you with superior protection and performance!

The Pro-Tech 8 Titan Structural Firefighting Glove is independently certified as compliant to the NFPA 1971 Standard — 2007 Edition — on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting; certifying agent Safety Equipment Institute, Virginia

 

 

Long Cuff versus Short Cuff

§         Long Cuff models specifically for use with turnout gear sleeves that do not have thumb hole wristlets or extended wristlets.

§         Short Cuff models specifically for use with turnout gear sleeves that have thumb hole wristlets

 

Design and Features

§         Pro-Tech 8 TITAN's advanced multi-layered design uses primarily sleek and flexible knitted fabrics made from high performance fibers that provide added thermal protection and cut/puncture resistance.

§         The outside layers feature highly flexible and rugged goat skin suede for abrasion resistance and the most efficient grip.

§         The back side of the glove features a knuckle guard system with 2 layers of waterproof Silicon Carbide fused to 2 layers of 100% Kevlar®, which provides enhanced thermal protection and cut resistance at the vulnerable knuckle compression point; a well-known firefighting hazard.

§         Unique stitching of the outer palm layer prevents bunching up of material and provides the most efficient grip of any NFPA compliant structural gloves.

§         Gathered stitching is used around the entire wrist for a secure fit and prevents debris from entering.

§         The Titan Long Cuff "wristlet" style extends the full glove body and features a 100% Kevlar® wrapped elastic band inside the cuff for extra secure fit and protection against fire ground debris (specifically for use with turnout gear sleeves that do not have thumb wristlets or long wristlets).

§         The glove inner liner is sewn in and bonded at each fingertip for maximum retention and efficient wet don and doff. A leather hang-up loop is provided in the glove for easy drying and storage.

§         Blood borne pathogen protection.

§         Overall breathability and quicker drying than full leather structural gloves.

 

Materials & Layering

§         The palm side outermost layer is water repellent suede goat skin tanned and designed to resist cracking, peeling, and stiffening while also providing a sure grip when wet.

§         The ring and middle finger sections are cut and sewn independently for enhanced dexterity.

§         Palm side underneath suede is a full layer, fingertip to cuff edge, of blended Kevlar®/Nomex® plus two partial layers of 100% Nomex® that run from mid-palm to the cuff edge.

§         The inner liner on the palm side is another full layer of 100% Nomex®.

§         The back side of the outer layer is water repellent suede goat skin leather, which covers the fingertip area, a 1" wide welt along the finger crotch and the knuckle guard to the cuff edge.

§         Under the leather portions on the glove back side is a fingertip to cuff-edge full layer of 100% Kevlar® and another full layer of 100% Nomex®.

§         The inner liner on the back side is another full layer of 100% Nomex®.

§         The knuckle guard portion has an outer layer of 100% Kevlar®, one layer of 100% Nomex® and two layers of silicon carbide both fused to 100% Kevlar®, another layer of 100% Kevlar® and another layer of 100% Nomex®.

§         The finger side walls are comprised of an outer layer Kevlar®/Nomex®, and two underneath layers of 100% Nomex®.

§         The glove inner layers are fully lined with a double layer of highly breathable polyurethane, completely sealed in the finger and sidewall area to prevent blood borne pathogen and liquid penetration.

§         The cuff area construction is supported by separate inner and outer layers of leather welting to prevent moisture wicking and to enhance support and durability.

§         100% Kevlar® high burst thread is used throughout and the cuff edge piping is 100% Kevlar®.
