Rubber Goods Sales and Testing

Whether you need new rubber goods, testing services, or a comprehensive inventory changeout program, Hi-Line is your "One Stop" rubber goods shop.

Rubber Goods Testing  

With two full service Rubber Goods Test Labs (Illinois and Massachusetts), Hi-Line tests over 250,000 rubber gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, hoods, and boots each year. We test all classes of rubber from Class 00 to Class 4.

Hi-Line’s test labs are climate controlled and state-of-the-art. All testing procedures conform to ASTM standards and involve thorough washing, visual inspection, dielectric testing, and date stamping.  Average turnaround is just 5-7 business days.

*These best practices reference federal OSHA regulations and ASTM standards. Please note that state OSHA regulations may have more stringent testing intervals than shown above.

Changeout Program  

Taking Rubber Goods testing to another level, Hi-Line Rubber Goods Change Out™ program insures that rubber products meet
or exceed ASTM standards and OSHA regulations while maximizing product usage. Like clockwork, rubber goods are cleaned, tested, custom date-stamped and on your dock when you need them.

The program allows crews to maximize usage of rubber products while minimizing warehouse inventory. For those who outsource this technical duty to the experts, Hi-Line is a great resource.

Through its Rubber Goods Change Out™ program, Hi-Line partners with utilities, contractors, and municipalities supporting as many as 4000 lineman or a crew of three.
