Rubber Insulating Gloves & Sleeves
When it comes to personnel protection, low and high voltage rubber gloves are some of the most important articles to prevent injuries and save lives. The Ansell Marigold range, now ACTIVARMR, of Electrical Gloves provide the highest levels of dexterity and comfort, coupled with a highly integrated quality assurance process. Each pair of gloves goes through a battery of tests to ensure the highest quality and safety standards. ISO 9001 and 14001 certify the manufacturing plants credentials in this space.
One of the key advantages of our Rubber Manufacturing Plant is the Aqueous Dipping process. Due to the proximity of the manufacturing plant to the actual latex source, liquid latex can be delivered in a highly pure form without the need for volatile organic compounds. This technique ensures the finished articles reflect the quality of the raw materials utilised to manufacture the gloves.
Certified to EN/IEC 60903 and also available in ASTM D120, these gloves have complete traceability right from the factory which continues through the distribution chain. The Balmoral™ value add includes complete in-house HV testing services, that compliment the factory testing. Each pair of electrical gloves is factory tested in compliance with the EN/IEC or ASTM standards. In addition to this, Utility companies often require HV Gloves supplied “in test”. This means locally tested, date stamped and serial numbered. This provides an added level of traceability that inspires trust and confidence in the Lineman who depends on the gloves.
Available in a comprehensive line up of sizes (including half), cuff styles (bell/contour/straight) and classes (including class 00, class 0, class 1, class 2, class 3 and class 4).

Please refer to directives in the EN/IEC 60903 standard or the ASTM F496 in field guide for further details. These standards will provide guidance on when electrical testing is required from both an initial and periodic stand point. There are also additional safety checks necessary to be completed in the field inclusive of visual inspections and air testing to ensure the glove is safe for use.
The gloves use industry standard colour identifiers to assist easy association with the correct voltage rating of the product. The label on each pair of gloves has a corresponding colour which demarcates the class or voltage rating. For instance, class 00 has a beige label, class 0 has a red label, class 1 has a white label, class 2 has a yellow label, class 3 has a green label and class 4 has a orange label.
The HV (class 1 to 4) Gloves are also dual layer in their construction. Yellow inner, black outer. This assists the user by providing a contrasting inner and outer layer to facilitate visual inspections for any damage to the glove. Puncture marks or scratches will be more easily identified if the yellow inner layer is showing through to the black outer layer.
