Leather heat-resistant gloves are rated for use in high-heat applications. Leather gloves resist wear and provide a balance of abrasion resistance and dexterity and are used in forestry, landscaping, and general construction. Heat-rated gloves have been tested to determine the temperature at which a worker will begin to feel a burn when handling an item. This time is affected by temperature, object weight, and length of time the object is held. Higher numbers (5) indicate that the glove provides greater protection than lower numbers (1).
