Elliotts supplies the Pro-Tech 8 range of speciality structural firefighting and rescue gloves as part of its portfolio of Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment. The range of protective gloves is designed specifically for improved hand protection and dexterity, providing better safety during fireground and other rescue operations.
Mr Elliott says that Elliotts key reason for supplying Techtrade gloves is the fact that when developing new product lines they “focus on the people wearing the gloves, they listen to their feedback and develop products that fire and rescue workers want to wear.” The Pro-Tech 8 gloves are designed to be comfortable and flexible enough that firefighters will be more likely to continue wearing their gloves in an emergency, further enhancing their safety.
Ted Bart, President / CEO of Techtrade LLC, says that their mission with the Pro-Tech 8 range of safety gloves is to “to provide unsurpassed dexterity, comfort, fit and grip without sacrificing world class thermal and other protective properties… Whether operating radios, rope rescue systems or during other fireground operations the versatile Pro-Tech 8 gloves maximizes "gloves-on" capability which in turn maximizes user protection and safety."
According to Elliotts the Pro-Tech 8 gloves are quickly becoming the first choice for rescue teams and firefighters that are looking for high levels of dexterity and protection. The range includes the Titan, Titan K and Fusion structural firefighting gloves and the ICE, BOSS and Pro-Tech 8 X extrication, rope and rescue gloves, all of which have been independently tested and certified to NFPA 1971 standards by the Safety Equipment Institute.
