I work in a government lab and we recently had an incident where 120VDC @ 40A shorted and gave a really cool light show in one of our racks. Since then, our Safety has come into question and we are looking to get some Hot Work gloves for all of our techs. Which company makes the most snug fitting gloves since we cannot bring down the power system to do fiber optic work, but we still need to observe safety? Any Manufacturer or Supplier websites would be great, but we'd really like first hand experience and part nubers for gloves that provide the most dexterity, but still provide Class 00 protection. Thanks for the help.

Mike,
If you are not working on the exposed energized electrical equipment, there is no need for voltage rated gloves, assuming the the voltage is 300 volts or less. I can't imagine doing fiber terminations with gloves on.

That's quite true Don.
Considering that most grades of gloves require a leather outer over the top to protect them.
I'd say, just be a bit more careful. [Linked Image]
