Early today, Gloves-Online.com reached the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1– and before our busy season.
Page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. For example, if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart.
Although we are very proud of this success, I wish to thank all the glove families that made this happen. My thanks (ranked according to their contributions) go to Mr. & Mrs. White Gloves, Leather Gloves, Winter Gloves, Fashion Gloves, Church Gloves, Bamboo Gloves, Sport Gloves, Cotillion Gloves, Usher Gloves, Coated Gloves, Cut Resistant Gloves, Grip Gloves, Fancy Gloves, Parade Gloves, Heat Resistant Gloves, Mechanics Gloves, and Electrician Gloves.
To demonstrate the significance of this number, we have not factored (added) in the customers that migrate to our industrial web site from GO to purchase their industrial and safety gloves. The GO Industrial web site is a completely different web site and we obviously don’t share those metrics since many people follow this Blog – a.k.a industrial espionage – but you can perceive those hits.
For the skeptics out there, I’ve added a web shot image of our actual metric scale which can be enlarged.
I doubt there is another glove company in the world that has reached this milestone in less than 9 months. After all, we were the very first global glove company on the Internet since 1996.
I can’t wait to see how successful the internet shop of our fine fashion glove boutique in St. Thomas, USVI, Olga Gloves, becomes.
I often get calls asking what class of rubber insulating gloves
is required for specific levels of voltage. The following is information from OSHA.
Employees who work in close proximity to live electrical current may require a variety of electrical insulating protective equipment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outlines this in their electrical protective equipment standard (29 CFR 1910.137
) which provides the design requirements and in-service care and use requirements for electrical-insulating gloves and sleeves as well as insulating blankets, matting, covers and line hoses.
Electrical safety gloves
are categorized by the level of voltage protection they provide. Voltage protection is broken down into the following classes:
Class 00 – Maximum use voltage of 500 volts
Class 0 – Maximum use voltage of 1,000 volts
Class 1 – Maximum use voltage of 7,500 volts
Class 2 – Maximum use voltage of 17,000 volts
Class 3 – Maximum use voltage of 26,500 volts
Class 4 – Maximum use voltage of 36,000 volts
Other requirements include daily inspections for any damage before each day’s use and retested and certified every six months.

This is our newest line of Gloves for electrical workers.
Salisbury rubber insulating gloves have earned the reputation for superior performance – meeting and exceeding the requirements of the current ASTM D120 specifications and the IEC EN 60903 Standards.
The Salisbury line includes all Classes in sizes from 7 to 12. The classes of the gloves include 00, 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 from 500 volts AC (low voltage) to the 36,000 volts AC (high voltage).
These linemen’s gloves also include the Class 0 range (up to 1,000 AC/1,500 DC) used for the repair and manufacturing of hybrid electric vehicles and automobiles.
We are proud to offer these gloves since they are manufactured in the USA not far from our warehouse which provides you with freshly manufactured gloves without the annoyance and worry of purchasing imported linemen’s gloves with limited certification/aging dates.
