Protective gloves for firefighters

IS Standard : IS 16874 : 2018

Firefighters' protective gloves are an important part of the specialized equipment meant to protect these first responders from extreme heat, flames, and other dangerous substances as they work. Firefighters can touch hot surfaces, rescue people, and battle fires thanks to the gloves' remarkable heat resistance and protection, which are made from cutting-edge materials. Typically, Nomex, Kevlar, and leather are used to make firefighter gloves because they combine flame resistance, heat insulation, and durability. They have extra safety features including impact-resistant cushioning, reinforced palm and finger regions, and materials that are resistant to cuts to guard against sharp items and debris that are frequently encountered during emergency situations.

Indian Standard IS 16874:2018 lays out specifications for firefighter-specific protective gloves. In order to lower the danger of burns, accidents, and exposure to hazardous materials, manufacturers can make protective gloves that satisfy strict safety and quality requirements by adhering to IS 16874:2018. The standard lays out a number of technical specifications pertaining to the functionality, performance, and design of protective gloves. Producers that follow these guidelines make sure their goods meet legal requirements, which lowers the possibility of legal problems and liabilities.

Note: The obligatory ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of firefighter safety gloves.

The ISI certification is a vital component of quality assurance, guaranteeing the dependability, security, and functionality of gloves that are necessary to protect firefighters' hands as they execute their difficult and valiant work fighting fires and other crises. It indicates that these gloves have passed extensive testing and meet the strict standards established by the BIS. These standards were created especially to assess the gloves' flame resistance, heat insulation, durability, and general efficacy in safeguarding firefighters' hands. This accreditation guarantees that the gloves are made to endure high temperatures, direct contact with fires, and other risks that firefighters could face while doing their duties.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
