Gloves, Protectors, and Bags
Elwood safety carries a full line of rubber insulating gloves and mittens. As a distributor of Chance and Salisbury equipment we are proud to say that our insulating rubber gloves are made from the highest quality natural gum rubber available and are contoured to fit the human hand. They are comfortable to wear and will not cause cramping or fatigue while in use.
You can choose from straight, bell, contoured cuffs, and finger mitten styles. Our gloves are available in 11 inch to 18 inch lengths in classes 00-4.
Measuring for Proper Fit of Gloves
Wrap a tape measurer around the palm at its widest point. This measurement in inches indicates the proper fitting glove size.
Glove Storage Bags
Durable canvas storage bags are designed to protect your rubber gloves from the elements in storage and transportation. Storage bags are available in 11", 14", and 16" for use with respective glove sizes
Determining Glove Length:
Measure from the tip of the middle finger to where the cuff should reach on the wrist or arm
The use of leather protectors is recommended to increase the life of your rubber gloves. Our leather glove protectors are made from top grain cowhide or goat skin and are designed to fit over insulating gloves.
Sizing Leather Protectors:
To maintain an adequate flashover distance between the end of the protector cuff and the end of the rubber glove cuff, the rubber glove should be longer than the protector by at least one inch multiplied by the rubber glove's class (ie. 4" flashover for class four, 3" flashover for class 3, etc). Class 0's and 00's should have flashover distances of no less than half an inch.

Kits include rubber insulating gloves, leather protectors, and a canvas storage bag sent as one convenient package to start you off on the right foot for maximizing the life and dependability of your dielectric gloves!
Blankets,Sleeves, and Dielectric Footwear
Our rubber insulating blankets protect you in the event of accidental contact with line hardware. Classes 2 and 4 are available in 22x22 inch, 27x36 inch, and 36x36 inch sizes in either slotted or solid construction.
As with any insulated rubber equipment, proper use and storage is an intergral part in maintaining the viability of insulating blankets. Ask us about the purchase of blanket canisters for storage and transportation and blanket clamps for securing equipment on the job!

Our footwear is made of premium grade ozone resistant rubber in a flexible, 100% waterproof, construction, with nonskid bar tread outsoles and nonmetallic buckle hardwear.
Arc Flash Protection
Arc flash protection is to be used when you are exposed to a potential arc flash and anytime you're working on or with panels or switch stations. our suits meet and exceed NFPA 70E standard requirements and provide a much higher level of protection than FR clothing.

Chest- Measure just under the arms and across the shoulder blades holding the tape firm and level
Waist- Measure around your natural waistline.

Elwood's voltage tester is a safe and convenient instrument used for locating blown fuses. It is also suited for determining to what extent metal covers or cases are energized. Use it in place of the hazardous old-fashioned test lamps and secondary circuit volt meters. We also offer a custom-made leather case to protect our voltage testers. Requires no Batteries. Measures voltage from 0-600 Volts. Will not explode if accidentally applied to a voltage as high as 4,800 Volts.
