Mars 5F

Mars 5F supplied by ESKA Gloves

Long firefighter glove with calf leather

The Mars 5F leather fire glove offers maximum sensitivity and, thanks to the Fire Block leather, high flame and water resistance.

The cut protection lining provides high performance protection against cuts and sharp edges, the side piping for better visibility.

Description

The leather firefighting glove Mars 5F in a completely new design combines the greatest protective features with maximum sensitivity. The robust and soft Fire Block leather provides maximum flame and water resistance and has no shrinkage, even at the highest temperatures (0% according to ISO 17493/EN 659, although maximum 5% are permitted).

The knuckle protection and reinforcement in the stressed area provide optimum abrasion and heat protection. The Fire Block leather in the palm offers maximum grip on wet and smooth surfaces. Due to the revolutionary, multilayered cut-resistant lining made of Kevlar®/Inox/LCP, Mars 5F has high performance protection against cuts and sharp edges.

The well thought, adjustable single belt system is a perfect secure fixation, which enables the glove to be worn over the jacket (Mars 5F, long cuff) or under the jacket (Mars-E 5F, knitted cuff). The reflective logo and lateral piping made of reflective materials are for better visibility. The rectangular loops and d-rings are made of fire-resistant carbon, so the heat absorption is lower and the weight gets reduced.

All mechanical and thermal maximum values were achieved both in a new condition and after pretreatment consisting of 20 washes at 30 °C. The anatomical, layered 3D cut is adjusted to the natural posture of our hands, to guarantee the best possible fit and freedom of movement. We use only European materials, which undergo strict quality control in Austria. The gloves for firefighters are available in versions with a long cuff (Mars 5F model) or with a 100% Kevlar® knitted cuff (Mars-E 5F model).
