Insulating Gloves | Protect Against Live Working 500V to 33/36kV | Presel
Insulating Gloves 500V to 36kV
Insulating gloves, manufactured by Presel, provide personal protection against electrical shocks when working near live voltages up to 500V up to 36,000V.
The insulating gloves are designed to be used with leather over gloves to ensure mechanical protection and using thin cotton under gloves is recommended for increased comfort and good hygiene.

INSULATING GLOVES FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION
Insulating gloves offer personal hand protection for workers against electrical shocks when working near or on live wires, cables and electrical equipment including substation switchgear and transformers – risk assessment identifies electrical shock during the jointing of cables or excavating around live cables as a potential cause of accident which can be avoided when appropriate safety precautions and gloves are worn.

Storage & Inspection Of Insulating Gloves
- Gloves should be stored in their container or package. Care should always be taken to ensure that gloves are not compressed, folded or stored in proximity to steam pipes, radiators or other sources of artificial heat. Nor should they be exposed to direct sunlight, artificial light or other source of ozone. The ambient temperature should be between 100C and 210C.
- Insulating gloves should be examined before each use and subjected to a manually applied air test, where practicable. If either glove is thought to be unsafe, the pair should not be used and should be returned for testing.
- Not even gloves held in storage, should be used unless they have been tested within the last six months. The tests consist of air inflation to check for air leaks, a visual inspection while pressurised, and then a routine dielectric test, in accordance with IEC 60903.
- The test of the 1st use, and the control dates, should be marked on the gloves.
