-           CAN WE STORE GLOVES IN THEIR ORIGINAL PACKAGING?

Yes, the plastic bag is resealable. Be careful not to damage it when opening it for the first time, so that you can easily close it afterwards. Thanks to its UV protection, this packaging ensures excellent preservation of gloves over time. In addition, you will use it as a leaflet in case of loss of the paper leaflet delivered with the gloves.

CATU offers 2 storage solutions for optimal protection:
             - 2 canvas covers:
                         CG-36/1: for classes 00 and 0
                         CG-36/2: for classes 1 and above
             - a resealable plastic box: CG-35/2

MY GLOVES HAVE A HOLE: IS IT POSSIBLE TO GLUE A PATCH?

No. This equipment ensures your safety against the electrical risk. It is forbidden to repair them. If your gloves are damaged, destroy them (cut the gloves) and use a new pair.

WHAT IS THE SIZE EQUIVALENCE OF OVER-GLOVES AND INSULATING GLOVES?

It is best to choose overshoes one size larger than the size of the insulating gloves. Their installation will only be easier.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN « CG » AND « CGM » SERIES ?

CGM gloves provide mechanical protection and are more resistant to abrasion. More demanding tests for these models are required by the standard. The "CG" gloves must be worn with leather over-gloves if there is a risk of damaging the insulating material. It is up to the operator, depending on the work to be done, to assess. The "CGM" gloves can be worn without over-glove.

ARE THE GLOVES REALLY PRODUCED BY CATU?

Yes, all our ranges of gloves are produced in our factory located in Spain near Barcelona.

CAN THE MO-185 ELECTRICIAN HELMET BE USED AT HIGH VOLTAGE?

The MO-185 helmet has standards guaranteeing high voltage use and also protects you against splashes of molten metal, flame and heat given off by electric arcs and therefore burns.
