Pro-Tech 8 Fusion

Pro-Tech 8 FUSION again offers our ground breaking multi-layer construction in a new design which results in a stunningly light-weight, flexible and comfortable glove that goes well beyond all the protective and performance requirements of the NFPA 1971 Standard – 2007 Edition.

Most importantly, FUSION again maximizes "gloves-on capability" through all your various fire ground tasks which is the ultimate enhancement to hand safety.

This glove breaks in extremely fast and remains soft and flexible after use. The unique Pro-Tech 8 multi-layer knuckle guard system appears again for enhanced protection at this vulnerable spot while FUSION introduces a new Mesh Knit inner liner that advances earlier improvements for efficient don and doff performance, especially when wet.

The FUSION Long Cuff "wristlet" style features our unique Kevlar® elastic cuff band which prevents debris from entering and eliminates glove slip off.

This Long Cuff version extends the actual glove body which guarantees the NFPA 1971 indicated protection of 35 TPP minimum. The outdated and difficult to don knit wristlets used by other glove makers lose their shape and elasticity and even worse, they are allowed to provide a significantly reduced level of protection of 20 TPP.

Pro-Tech 8 Titan

Pro-Tech 8 Titan is the latest structural firefighting glove from TechTrade. The Titan model picks up where the original Pro-Tech 8 left off and offers enhanced protection, abrasion resistance and durability without sacrificing the superior the dexterity, comfort and fit that Pro-Tech 8 users demand.

Pro-Tech 8 Titan's unique knuckle guard system enhances protection where needed which most structural firefighting gloves completely ignore.

The Pro-Tech 8 Titan Long Cuff wristlet style features a Kevlar® elastic cuff band which prevents debris from entering and eliminates glove slip off. The wristlet section is actually an extension of the actual glove construction providing the same maximum thermal protection found elsewhere in the glove. You no longer need to put up with annoying outdated knit wristlets that lose their elasticity and provide a significantly reduced level of thermal protection.

The glove is certified as compliant to the NFPA 1971 Standard — 2007 Edition — on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting; certifying agent Safety Equipment Institute, Virginia.

Pro-Tech 8 Titan K

  • Titan K is today's gold standard for structural firefighting gloves! This new glove is the Kangaroo skin version of our Pro-Tech 8 Titan model. Kangaroo is considered the most rugged of all leathers ounce for ounce while maintaining incredible softness and pliability. The unique structure of kangaroo leather allows it to be cut down to a relatively very thin layer but still retain its strength. As a comparison, when split to 20% of original thickness kangaroo skin retains 30-60% of the tensile strength of the unsplit hide. Calf on the other hand split to 20% of original thickness retains only 1-4% of original strength.
  • The result is far superior durability than other structural gloves, protection that averages well over 60 TPP during NFPA compliance testing and unsurpassed dexterity and comfort that Pro-Tech 8 users demand; an unbeatable combination that no structural glove in the world can equal!
  • Titan K of course includes the Pro-Tech 8 unique knuckle guard protection system that enhances your safety even further at this vulnerable spot.
  • Pro-Tech 8 structural gloves use the highest quality components including DuPont Kevlar® and Nomex® and water repellent leather. The multi-layer design allows incredibly soft and comfortable break in with thermal protection that actually increases after washing, as proven during our lab certification testing; also while drying quickly and soft. The inner liner component is 100% knitted Nomex® and cannot be simply pulled apart like the SEF used in many of our competitors gloves.
  • The Pro-Tech 8 Titan K Long Cuff version features a Kevlar® wrapped elastic cuff band which prevents debris from entering and eliminates glove slip off. Our Long Cuff model extends the actual glove body layers themselves in the cuff area. Unlike most other manufacturers we do not use the typical annoying and outdated knit wristlets which lose their shape and elasticity over time. Also, these knit wristlets are allowed to offer as little as 20 TPP protection while our extended cuff area will provide at least the same minimum 35 TPP required of the glove body.
  • Titan K is certified as compliant to the NFPA 1971 Standard — 2007 Edition — on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting
