The Safety Equipment Institute (SEI), a private, non-profit organization that administers a non-governmental, third-party certification program and tests and certifies a broad range of safety and protective products, has issued a safety alert for fire gloves manufactured by The Glove Corporation.
During recent testing, Blaze Fighter gloves encountered issues with the performance of the conductive heat resistance test. The back of the hand area of the glove did not meet the prescribed performance threshold, as outlined in Section 7.7.5 of the NFPA 1971-2007 Standard. The Blaze Fighter style exhibited issues with test values that were below the minimum performance requirements.
