Skarshaug Testing Laboratory stocks both Chance-Hubbell and Salisbury rubber insulating gloves.
Salisbury linemen’s gloves are available in a full range of sizes, from 7 through 12. Half-sizes are available for sizes 8, 9, and 10, with “H” as the product identifier (i.e. 8H, 9H, 10H). Proper fit is important. To determine glove size, measure the circumference around the palm (see graphic) and add 1-inch. Allow for additional room if fabric glove liners are to be worn, especially with thermal liners. The rubber gloves meet or exceed ASTM D120 and IEC EN60903 Standards.
Leather Protectors should be worn with rubber gloves. We stock Salisbury and Kunz protectors. For protector selection, match the protector size to the rubber glove size. The length of the protector is according to the rubber glove length and class. The protector should be shorter than the rubber glove by the distance below:
|Glove Class||Protector Length|
|Class 00||1″ Shorter than rubber glove|
|Class 0||1″ Shorter than rubber glove|
|Class 1||1″ Shorter than rubber glove|
|Class 2||2″ Shorter than rubber glove|
|Class 3||3″ Shorter than rubber glove|
|Class 4||4″ Shorter than rubber glove|
Lastly, Glove Bags are generally sized to be 1-2” longer than the gloves they are designed to protect. The rubber gloves, protectors, and bags are sold as a complete kit. Below, there is a list of our most popular rubber gloves by ASTM class along with a featured kit. Select the ASTM Class and the tab will drop-down to view item details.

Low Voltage Gloves
Low Voltage Gloves (Class 00, Class 0) are available in two types of material: Type I (natural rubber) and Type II (synthetic rubber). Synthetic rubber is a UV and ozone-resistant material. Salisbury synthetic gloves are blue (color).
High Voltage Gloves
Class 1 through 4 (High Voltage) gloves are available in the industry standard color black, or in contrasting two-color combinations. Two-color combination gloves have either yellow (inside) / black (outside) or red (inside) / black (outside). The contrast between the thin outer color against the inner color makes inspecting for cuts and tears easier when the glove is inflated or stretched. High voltage gloves are available in three different styles (with some exceptions): straight cuff, bell cuff, and contour cuff. Straight Cuff is the “default” style for the industry. Bell Cuff allows additional room between the wrist and the cuff. The bell accommodates heavier winter clothing and allows for greater air flow in warmer weather. It is also ideal for use with rubber insulating sleeves. Contour Cuff is angled to prevent bunching or binding at the elbow when the arm is bent. Available on all 18″ gloves only.
Skarshaug Testing Laboratory carries Salisbury and Kunz leather protectors. Below is pricing for some of the Kunz option listed by class rating. Kunz leather protectors are all manufactured in the USA and meet ASTM standard F696.
