Insulating Gloves For Live Working & HV High Voltages
Where utility workers are required to work on or in close proximity to Live LV conductors insulating gloves according to Class 1 (7.5kV) BS EN 60903 standard are generally specified for electrical safety and protection – gloves should not be the sole level of protection for working on Live LV cables or conductors.
Class 1 gloves are issued to cable jointers and substation personnel required to operate air-break switch disconnector handles or link and fuse operating rods on the HV Electrical System – it is recommended that a leather protective outer glove should be used while operating on the HV System to prevent premature damage to the insulating glove. Gloves should be replaced before re-testing is required.

Low Voltage LV Switchrooms
To enable the inspection, testing and commissioning of all Low Voltage electrical equipment and power systems – this includes electrical insulating matting for use in front of LV switchgear, insulating rubber gloves (Class 0) and wall mounted life saving kits.
