New Honeywell TMAX Gloves

The NEW Honeywell TMAX Gloves are not only a great looking gauntlet cuff glove, but a glove that offers extra protection without sacrificing the dexterity we know you all need on the job.

The TMAX Gloves are made from a blend of comfortable, pliable and durable material--hence giving it that dexterity right away when you can't afford to waste time "breaking them in". The glove's goatskin palm helps to provide control and ease of movement when using ropes and hoses. The cowhide body helps to add soft durability to the palm.

Each of the finger forchettes are made of goatskin which allow for better finger dexterity and gripping power giving you less thumb fatigue. The knuckle pads are goatskin, too which help to pad and protect your knuckles and provides extra air pockets for heat and compression protection. 

The TMAX Glove also boast the Pyrotech moisture barrier--which basically speaking is a barrier that provides breathability, keeps you dry with a waterproof feature, and aids the glove in resistance to body fluids, chemicals, and blood. 

Of course, all these great features add up to mean that it goes well above the NFPA 1971 Standards for Structural Firefighting Gloves. 

If you're looking for the perfect way to keep your hands safe from heat, hazards and fatigue while firefighting, then you need to own a pair of Honeywell TMAX Gloves.

Team Silver Fox Needs Your Support!

On November 9th Team Silver Fox will be walking in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Philadelphia in honor of our Founder and CEO, Jim Witmer. 

Jim was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease at only 57 years old, just three years ago. Alzheimer's is no longer just an "old persons disease", it is affecting those younger and younger all the time. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's, and sadly, that number is expected to grow to 16 million by 2050. Something needs to be done. 

In January of 2013, Jim, with the rest of his family by his side announced to the company about his diagnosis. It was a moment of sadness, but of course, our CEO was cracking jokes and providing comedic relief in the midst of sharing his story. He's always been great about lightening the mood in a tough moment.

Jim leads a life of bravery, has always charged forward with new ideas, creating the businesses you all know and love today, and has provided his community with safety by volunteering and elevating through the ranks over the years. He's served as an Elder of his church, been awarded the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for the Philadelphia Region, was (and is!) a solid husband, and raised 4 great children over the years. He is the beloved Pop Pop to 7 grandchildren now.

Over the past few years, things have definitely changed. But one thing remains---the Witmer Family is still praying for, and working towards seeing a cure to End Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's is an extremely underfunded disease, but it affects SO many. It's the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.

Our team, Team Silver Fox, needs your support! 

Our Team is dedicated to raising funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support, and we need your help. Consider donating here. If you are local, would you walk with us?

Walk to End Alzheimer's - Philadelphia
Citizens Bank Park
Sunday, November 9th
Registration at 9AM, Walk at 11AM
5K Route

You can do something, You can help.

The end of Alzheimer's disease begins with you.
