High Voltage Rubber Glove Testing
Rubber insulating gloves are freshly tested upon shipment, and marked with the test date. Gloves must be put into use within 12 months of the test date if they are in storage. They must be tested every 6 months after being put into service.
Proper storage to ensure the glove proof test endures the full year includes:
- Store rubber gloves in a glove bag, unfolded, with leather protectors taken off
- Glove bag should be hung in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and ozone
- Rubber glove inspections should occur before each use
- Inspection methods are outlined in ASTM F1236
Voltage rated gloves must be worn with leather glove protectors over top the rubber voltage gloves to meet ANSI D120 and protect the gloves from cuts, abrasions and other mechanical hazards that would compromise the safety of the voltage gloves.
Voltage glove bags and voltage glove kits can be found with bag and leather protectors for voltage classes 00-2.
