    Hi,

    I recommend to switch OFF voltage before you touch the tubes.

    * If you really need those gloves to protect from electrical shock then a assume you have to use the thick ones.

    * But maybe - what you saw - are just (cheap, often white) cottom gloves. They prevent the tubes from dirt/mositure/oil....

    Most likely they were trying to protect their hands from dirt and grime and not really from high voltage. Simple linen gloves will not offer any significant protection from high voltages...
