Electrical Glove Testing
Gloves passing certification testing will be date stamped and placed in a sealed bag.
We understand the importance of your gloves, and you need them tested and returned quickly. We strive to get your equipment back to you as soon as possible.
Credit Card Authorization
ASTM D120 and ASTM F496 Compliance Includes the following:
The ASTM F496 requires in service electrical gloves to be tested every 6 months. Gloves which have been tested but not in service need to be tested within the previous 12 months in order to be placed into service.
The Electrical Glove Testing Lab at Southwest Energy Systems, LLC provides advanced, glove testing services for new gloves and recertification for in-service gloves. Gloves passing the testing will be date stamped and placed into a sealed bag, along with a copy of the test report. We offer rapid turn around at no extra charge.
Leading edge technology
Southwest Energy Systems’ uses the latest leading edge digital technology in their electrical glove testing laboratory. Our new VON glove testing equipment uses a Direct Current (DC) technology which does not degrade the insulating material the same as Alternating Current (AC) does. Have you ever noticed that your rubber gloves fail fairly frequently in spite of precautions taken for care and maintenance? This AC testing could be a potential cause.
Why Should I be Concerned?
Arc Flash incidents typically occur in applications above 120V and can occur when electrical equipment is being serviced or inspected. Any exposure to voltage over 32 volts requires the use of certified and inspected electrical gloves and protectors. Non certified gloves can potentially cause electrocution and death.
Don't risk your life, or the lives of others by using gloves that have not been certified by an independent laboratory.
