Product Release: Magid Glove & Safety A.R.C. Rubber Insulating Gloves
CHICAGO – Magid Glove & Safety, the dedicated, single-source safety solutions provider, is excited to now offer its Magid® A.R.C.™Rubber Insulating Gloves to complement the existing Magid A.R.C. Protective Clothing and Magid® PowerMaster® High and Low Voltage Protector Gloves. Manufactured using only the finest natural rubber latex, Magid A.R.C. Rubber Insulating Gloves offer high dielectric properties, increased durability, flexibility and physical strength.
These gloves are available in a variety of configurations including Class 00, Class 0, Class 1 and Class 2; 11”, 14”, and 16” lengths; and black, red, black/red and red/back color options in sizes 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5 and 11. Whether workers need black rubber insulating gloves or red rubber insulating gloves, all styles affordably meet and exceed the respective OSHA 29C FR 1910.269 regulations and NFPA 70E standards. In addition to providing cost-effective compliance, these gloves offer several comfort-enhancing features including contours to reduce hand fatigue and minimize chaffing, a flexible design to simplify working with small parts, a smooth finish for a soft fit and a rolled cuff for easy on and off.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both Magid and industrial workers,” said Rusty Cohen, Executive Vice President of Magid Glove & Safety. “With the growth of users requiring arc protection, there is an identifiable need for lower-costing, high-quality PPE with reduced lead times, and Magid’s A.R.C. Rubber Insulating Gloves deliver just that.”
For added convenience, Magid also offers in-house electrical glove testing (EGT) capabilities made available through its progressive new EGT machine to streamline purchasing and testing needs. Sophisticated and savvy, the Magid EGT Machine utilizes digital microprocessor controls and metering as well as a menu-based test system from which the user can choose from a predefined set of criteria such as glove class, glove length, new glove test or retest. All Magid EGT system settings - including test voltage, current limit, glove depth, water fill level, test time, blower speed and exhaust fan speed - are activated with just a single selection thereby eliminating operator error and maximizing testing efficiencies.
Its robust platform holds up to three pairs of all available electrical rubber glove classes (00-4), lengths (11”-18”) and cuffs (straight, contour, bell), and even contains intuitive programming that alerts the tester if and when the machine is on the wrong settings. All results are stored on a hard drive and outputted directly into Magid’s order tracking system. Orders are accepted electronically, by telephone or fax, and the gloves are date stamped and sent back with a copy of the test report within 10-14 days of receipt. Virtually no other provider offers the same level of automation.
Available for immediate shipment, Magid A.R.C. Rubber Insulating Gloves are sold by the pair, and they are packaged 36 pair or 12 pair per shipping carton with additional discounts available for volume purchases.
