UPT uses the latest in technology for our testing equipment and procedures that is available in today’s market. Housed in a climate controlled environment, our glove testing hardware is built, certified, and maintained by Hanco (Hannon electric). By testing with Alternating Current (AC) voltage, your insulated equipment is tested for strength against the exact same type of current that workers will be facing in the field.
OSHA regulates (see here) the requirements for specific types of electrical protective equipment used by persons working on or near energized circuits and/or other electrical sources that are considered either high or low-voltage applications. The types of protective equipment that fall under this category (1910.137) include but are not limited to rubber insulating blankets, rubber gloves, rubber insulating matting, rubber insulating covers, and rubber insulating sleeves. UPT has the experienced knowledgeable staff to ensure that we always maintain the latest testing and regulatory standards required to keep your equipment in compliance with both OSHA and ASTM requirements.
