Fire-Dex, a fast-growing manufacturer of PPE for first responders, has introduces the Dex-Rescue Glove, the the industry’s first non-structural glove certified to NFPA 1951 (“Standard on Protective Ensembles for Technical Rescue Incidents”).

The new glove is designed to bring wearers the very best in puncture resistance and flash fire protection. The glove is also durable and comfortable meaning it will not melt or ignite due to a flash fire or restricting manual dexterity in critical moments.

Todd Herring, Vice President, Product Innovation and Strategy for Fire-Dex, commented: “There are vast numbers of extrication gloves on the market, but are not certified to NFPA 1951. Our close work with extrication specialists has highlighted protection priorities that are much different for technical rescue than for structural firefighting. We saw this as an opportunity to give emergency responders the specialized protection they deserve.”

Dex-Rescue Gloves meet the industry’s highest standards for cut, abrasion and comfortability while helping wearers maintain a better grip on potentially dangerous situations with enhanced features.

The gloves feature:

  • Pigskin construction for abrasion resistance and breathability in wet and dry conditions
  • Goatskin finger sidewalls to help improve manual dexterity by remaining soft and pliable over time
  • Smart-touch materials making it easy to use mobile devices in the field without removing one’s gloves
  • Rollover fingertips for increased dexterity and gripping power
  • Keystone thumb design permitting a 360° range of motion for added flexibility
  • Dex-Flex fingers that are naturally bent to reduce restriction and hand fatigue.
  • Impact guards providing sturdy knuckle and finger protection from impacts, cuts and punctures

The Dex-Rescue Gloves has been crafted with all types of technical rescue missions in mind for anything from chemical spills to electrical incidents to wildland emergencies.
