Quality of Materials, Pattern & Craftsmanship

Leather Protectors, worn over rubber insulating gloves, have seen little design change since their OSHA-mandated use that started in the 1950’s. Most producers of leather protectors use the same working glove pattern invented in the 1870’s. Youngstown’s Leather Protectors have taken an entirely new approach by creating an ergonomic glove pattern that fits perfectly over rubber insulating gloves while staying within the parameters of ASTM F696. This innovative design provides greater fit, dexterity and comfort, and eliminates the problems caused by ill-fitting protectors. We produce these gloves with premium grade grain leather. The High Voltage models use a thick, tacky and flexible cow grain upper. Our Low Voltage Protectors feature a thin, tacky and flexible goat grain leather. We combine the materials into our ergonomic 3D pattern, precision sewed with meticulous care and attention to detail by our best glove craftsmen. The finished product is a leather protector of unmatched quality, fit and performance.

No Drip, No Melt, No Ignite

Youngstown’s line of Leather Protectors is Arc Rated and made with materials that will not drip, melt or ignite if exposed to an arc flash. Rather than use the commonly found polymeric cuff, Youngstown produces cuffs made of cow suede that will also not drip, melt or ignite, and additionally provide both cut and puncture resistance. We also use an FR Strap System with a webbing made of woven Kevlar® and a heat stabilized heavy duty fastener to further ensure no dripping or melting.
