utility gloves

When electrical utility workers need hand protection, they look to Youngstown Glove Co. for gloves that provide safety, durability and a good fit. Youngstown introduces the new Youngstown Leather Utility Plus glove, which is ARC rated and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E-2012 compliant—resulting in a product that is a leap forward for the utility glove category.

The new Youngstown Leather Utility Plus glove can significantly reduce the risk of injury or death. You can be confident hands are safe with a glove that boasts a National Electric Safety Code (NESC) ARC rating of 20.8 Cal/cm2 and ranks at a level 2 Hazard Risk Category (HRC). ARC ratings, or the amount of energy a fabric can withstand before the onset of a second-degree burn, are fast becoming a standard to compare a number of products including gloves. Simply put, the higher the calorie rating the better.
