Features and uses of dielectric gloves

Dielectric gloves are personal protective equipment manufactured in latex and which protect workers from possible electric shocks.

Dielectric gloves are used by workers to protect their hands while performing tasks related to electricity. Thanks to the insulating material they are made from, they prevent possible injury from electrical shock.

 

These gloves can be made of rubber or latex and can be found in different categories, depending on the maximum voltage of the work carried out. There are class 00 (500 volts), class 0 (1,000 volts), class 1 (7,500 volts), class 2 (17,000 volts), class 3 (26,500 volts) and finally class 4 (36,000 volts).

 

It is important that they allow the easy detection of problems on the glove surface and are therefore made in colours that allow this. Therefore, before and after use, you must check that they are in perfect condition by inspecting their surface.

 

It is also very common to use dielectric gloves with leather gloves to provide mechanical protection and, even as an additional safety measure to use thin flame-retardant and flame-retardant gloves under the insulation gloves.

 

In MAFEPE you can find the dielectric gloves that best suit your needs:

 

- DIE 25 (class 00) - 500 volts

- DIE 50 (class 0) - 1,000 volts

- DIE 100 (class 1) - 7,500 volts

- DIE 200 (class 2) - 17,000 volts

- DIE 300 (class 3) - 26,500 volts

- DIE 400 (class 4) - 36,000 volts
