Glove Selection

Shelby Specialty Glove manufacturers gloves to numerous standards, such as National Consensus Standards, State and Local standards. The user should select the glove that was designed for the intended end use. By selecting the glove for the designated end use the user will receive optimum performance and protection levels offered by that glove. If your task is fighting wildlands fires you should select a certified wildlands glove. The same would also hold true for both structural and proximity. Shelby offers gloves in all these different categories. If your mission is to fight ARFF fires your selection should be a proximity glove, these gloves are designed to block high levels of radiant heat from the fuel source. Structural gloves do not offer the same levels of protection from radiant heat as do proximity gloves. You should take time and select the proper glove for the intended end use.
