The firefighter’s glove is a Shelby Steamblock Model #5229 five finger cut leather glove with a knit wristlet. It is dark blue in color with a brown thumb, and the word STEAMBLOCK is printed in gold letters on the overhand side of the glove. The glove is comprised of an outer shell, moisture barrier and thermal liner for protection against heat, short duration flame (flash), abrasions, tears and punctures. It has an additional Firewall Steamblock insulating pad between the outer shell and a moisture barrier on the back of the hand. The glove has an extended body and wristlet and is close fitting at the opening to restrict the entry of embers and other foreign particles. It is constructed, tested and labeled in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Standard on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting, NFPA 1971-1997 Edition. The glove's protective barrier is made of Porelle, a microporous polymer membrane. The breathable moisture barrier is joined (laminated) to the thermal liner. The insulated pad is made of fire retardant silicone foam elastomer with an integral skin on the top and bottom surfaces and is attached at the side seams of the gloves. The lining is 8-oz. S.E.F. Modacrylic fleece laminated to the liner of breathable Porelle. The leather is heavyweight, fire-retardant treated, heat-resistant cowhide. The gloves are available in sizes x-small, small, medium, large, x-large and jumbo. Each pair weighs about 2.2 to 2.5 pounds and is 9 inches long.

These are provided in the investigator kit and are provided in the firefighting/access personnel kit.
