Properties & Details

EN 1073-2

Contamination protection against radioactive particles

Clothing certified by this standard protects the wearer against radioactive contamination by solid particles (not against nuclear radiatio). The clothing has to protect the full body of the user against penetration of solid particles.

EN 1149

Protective Clothing – Antistatic

describes the requirements of electroconductive clothing. This clothing is earthed, for example by combining it with electroconductive boots, to reduce the static sparking and thereby also reduces the explosion risk. This standard can be further divided into:

EN 1149-1     Clothing according to part 1 conducts the elecrostatic charge.
EN 1149-2   Clothing according to part 2 was tested for its electric resistance.
EN 1149-3   Clothing according to part 3 conducts elecrostatic charge into the air.
EN 1149-5   Clothing accord to part 5 is subject to requirements on material and constructions that can be uses as part of a fully earthed system.

EN 12941

Respiratory protective devices - Powered filtering devices incorporating a loose fitting respiratory interface

 

Defines the minimum requirements for respiratory protective devices in combination with either a helmet or a cap. There are three degrees of protection depending on the leakage to the inside:

Degree of protection TH1:     <15%
Degree of protection TH2:     <2%
Degree of protection TH3:     <0,2%

EN 13034

Protective clothing against liquid chemicals

Specifies the requirements of liquid-proof or limitedly used chemical protective clothing. This clothing protects against small splashes and aerosols (e.g. by sprays) of chemicals whose impact is classified as a low risk. In case of a contanimation of the clothing the wearer has sufficient time to start appropriate safety measures. The protectionof this clothing is thereby limited (type 6).

EN 13688

General requirements of protective clothing

 

Specifies general requirements of protective clothing regarding ergonomics, innucuousness, size declaration, life span, compatibility and labeling as well as information that has to be provided with the clothing.

EN 14058

Protection against cold environments

This european standard sets the requirements and tests for the performance characteristics of clothing for protection of the body against cold environments. The applications of tested clothing are cool environments with an air temperature of -5°C and higher. In the identification the classification of the overall heat transfer resistance is mandatory.


EN 14126

Infection protection against blood and viruses

While handling biological substances this european standard tests for the capability of the material to protect against biologically contaminated liquids (by bacteria). For this purpose the material of the proctective clothing will be exposed to a liquid provided with bacteria. Then it will be tested whether the bacteria permeated the material.


EN 14605

Protective clothing against liquid chemicals

Type 3

Describes the minimum requirements of chemical protective clothing with either liquidproof (type 3) or sprayproof (type 4) connections. Multi-part combinations of protective clothing, e.g. coveralls with gloves, with either liquid- or sprayproof connections are also possible. For clothing that protects only a certain part of the body, this european standard provides the requirements on the seams and the material.

Type 4

EN 149

Filtering half masks against particles

 

Provides the requirements on filtering respiratory half- and full masks. Half masks cover the mouth and the nose, while full masks cover the whole face. The protection classes of the masks are differentiated by the threshold limit value (TLV):

FFP1:     Half masks with a protection up to 4-times the threshold limit value
FFP2:     Half masks with a protection up to 10-times the threshold limit value (full masks up to 15-times).
FFP3:     Half masks with a protection up to 30-times the threshold limit value (full masks up to 400-times).

EN 20345

Safety footwear for commercial use

 

Is there a threat to hurt your feet during work, one should wear shoes according to this norm. This can happen by falling items, sharp or pointed items laying on the ground as well as by chemicals or by contact to very hot materials. Besides these permanent requirements on the shoe material and the toe cap the shoes can be divided into five categories:


S1     antistatic, energy absorption of seat region (200 Joule), closed seat region
S2     like S1 with a waterproof bootleg
S3     like S2 with a puncture resistant midsole
S4     like S1 with a waterproof bootleg from polymeric material
S5     like S4 with a steel midsole

There are further, optional specifications:


A     Antistatic
E     Energy absorption of seat region
P     Puncture resistant midsole
SRA     Slip-resistant while water and cleansing material on ceramic
SRB     Slip-resistan while glycerin on steel
SRC     SRA and SRB are fulfilled

EN 20347

Occupational footwear

 

In contrast to shoes according to EN 20345 there is no toe cap required in this standard. Therefore they are named occupational footwear. Shoes according to this norm are suited for working areas with a low risk of foot injuries. This standard also divides the shoes into 5 categories:


O1     antistatic, energy absorption of seat region (200 Joule), closed seat region
O2     like O1 with a waterproof bootleg
O3     like O2 with a puncture resistant midsole
O4     like O1 with a waterproof bootleg from polymeric material
O5     like O4 with a steel midsole

EN 340

General requirements of protective clothing

 

Specifies general requirements of protective clothing regarding ergonomics, innucuousness, size declaration, life span, compatibility and labeling as well as information that has to be provided with the clothing.

EN 343

Protective clothing against rain

Defines the requirements for protective clothing against rain. For this reason the watertightness and breathability are determined and indexed into three classes, where class 3 is the highest rank:

Watertightness:

Class 1:     -
Class 2:     > 800 mmH2O
Class 3:     > 1300 mmH2O

The water pressure is defined in mmH2O during the test.

 

Breathability:

Class 1:     Ret: > 150
Class 2:     Ret: 20 - 149
Class 3:     Ret: 1 - 19

The Ret-value states the resistance that water vapour has to overcome to emit outwards.

EN 369

Protection against oil and lubricants

 

Tests the protection of the clothing against liquid chemicals. For this purpose the material is tested for its resistance against permeation of liquids.

EN 374

Protective gloves against chemicals

Fully-fledged protection

Within this standard there is a distinction of two ways of chemical protection. Gloves with a fully-fledged protection are marked with the Erlenmeyer flask and protect against at least 3 of the following chemicals for more than 30 minutes:

A     Methanol
B     Acetone
C     Acetonitrile
D     Dichlormethane
E     Carbon disulfide
F     Toluol
G     Diethylamine
H     Tetrahydrofuran
I     Ethyl acetate
J     n-heptane
K     Sodium hydroxide 40%
L     Sulfuric acid 96%

Limited protection

Gloves with a limited protection on the other hand are marked with the beaker glass. These gloves are waterproof and can protect against certain chemicals.

EN 385

Protective clothing for the use of handheld chainsaws

For works with chain saws there are special requirements on the protective clothing due to the high danger. These requirementsare defined in several parts of EN 385.

Part 5:     Manages the requirements of the leg protection. For professional users the shapes A and B suit, where the protection is primarily on the front side. For less trained persons in dealing with chain saws shape C fits better with its all-round protection. The cut protection class should be chosen depending on the chain saw speed.
Part 11:     Manages the requirements of torso protection.

EN 388

Protective gloves against mechanical risks

This standard from year 2003 (EN 388:2003) specifies for criteria which allow to estimate the protection against mechanical risks. For each criteria a performance level will be assigned:

Abrasion resistance:     0 to 4
Blade cut resistance (round blade):     0 to 5
Tear strength resistance:     0 to 4
Puncture resistance:     0 to 4


The higher the performance level the better the result to the according mechanical risk.

Beyond that an advancement of this standard was published in 2016 (EN 388:2016). Gloves can be tested according to this new standard already, but it does not take effect yet. This publication includes an extension of the mechanical risks by these criteria:

Blade cut resistance (straight blade):     A to F
Protection agains shocks*:     P (if successfull)

*the test for protection against shocks is optional and only makes sense for gloves with a padding that softens the shock.

Between both variants of the blade cut resistance (straight and round blade) there are essential differences in the testing procedure and their resulting outcomes. Because the outcomes of both procedures differentiate quite a lot, their performance levels need to be considered independently. Whereas the testing procedure with round blades suits better to estimate the protection during work with light, sharp items, the test with straight blades is delivering better estimations for different force impacts and accordingly impulsive risks.

EN 407

Protective gloves against thermal risks

Within this standard the gloves are tested for is protection against risks by heat. The test contains the following criteria:

Burning behavior:     0 to 4
Contact heat:     0 to 4
Convection heat:     0 to 4
Radiant heat:     0 to 4
Small splashes of molten metall:     0 to 4
Large quantities of molten metall:     0 to 4

Höhere Werte kennzeichnen ein besseres Testergebnis. Der Wert „X“ signalisiert, dass der Handschuh nach diesem Kriterium nicht getestet wurde.

EN 420

General requirements for protective gloves

 

This standard determines the general requirements for protective gloves. The requirements consist of design fundamentals, material resistance against water penetration, innocousness, comfort, performance, manufacturer marking as well as information that has to be provided.

EN 471

High visibility warning clothing

To improve the visibility of the wearer during different lightning conditions, especially when the wearer is illuminated by headlamps in traffic. For this reason this standard determines the requirements of reflective material and background material as well as their arrangement and their minimal area.
The categorisation happens into classes 1 to 3 where class 3 represents the best visibility. Please consider that the classification is subject to the condition that the remaining clothing also reaches a minimal visibility according to EN 471.

In the meantime EN 471 was replaced by EN ISO 20471.

EN 511

Protective gloves against cold

The criteria below provide information about how good the gloves protect your hands during works in cold environments:

Convective cold:     0 to 4
Contact cold:     0 to 4
Water penetration:     0 to 1

Höhere Werte kennzeichnen ein besseres Testergebnis. Der Wert „X“ signalisiert, dass der Handschuh nach diesem Kriterium nicht getestet wurde.

EN 531

Protective clothing against heat and flames

For short contacts with flames and at least one type of heat, clothing that was tested by this european standard is suitable. The following types of heat are distinguished:

Limited flame spread:     A
Convective heat:     B1 – B5
Radiant heat:     C1 – C4
Liquid iron:     E1 = 60g – 120g

    E2 = 121g – 200g

    E3 >= 201g

In the meantime EN 531 was replaced by EN ISO 11612.

EN ISO 11611

Protective clothing for use in welding

During welding and related processes clothing that fulfills these requirements protects against small splashes, short contact with heat, radiant heat of electric arcs and welding beads as well as limited electric charges.

EN ISO 11612

Clothing to protect against heat and flame

For short contacts with flames and at least one type of heat, clothing that was tested by this european standard is suitable. The following types of heat are distinguished:

Limited flame spread:     A
Convective heat:     B1 – B3
Radiant heat:     C1 – C4
Splashes of molten aluminium:     D1 – D3

EN ISO 13982-1

Protection against particles

This standard determines the minimum requirements of chemical protective clothing to protect agaist solid parts (type 5). This clothing has to protect the whole body against penetration of so-called airborne dust, which are hovering particles of solid chemicals.

EN ISO 14116

Protection against heat and flames

Within this standard the clothing will be tested for its mimum requirements to protect against short contact with flames. This decreases the danger of the clothing to take fire. To this standard also belongs an index that delivers information about the sorts of burning behaviours that are decreased by the clothing material:

Index 1:     Protection against flame spread, burning residues and afterglow characteristics
Index 2:     Protection against flame spread, burning residues and afterglow characteristics, hole forming characteristics
Index 3:     Protection against flame spread, burning residues and afterglow characteristics, hole forming characteristics, afterflame characteristics

EN ISO 20471

High visibility clothing

For situations in traffic or close to traffic with a high risk to be overlooked, clothing according to this standard provides a better visibility. Compared to EN 471 a better all-round visibility was achieved by the requirement to place reflective material around the torso and the arms. Thanks to this design regulation even by night the wearer can be recognised to be a person.
The classifications happens in the classes 1 to 3, where class 3 represents the best visibility and therefore is also suitable for fast moving traffic.
Please consider that the classification is subject to the condition that the remaining clothing also reaches a minimal visibility according to EN 471.

EN 61482-1-2

Protective clothing against thermal hazards of an electric arc

Working next to energised parts and eletrical works carry the inherent danger of electric arcs. Protective clothing according to this standard decreases this threat. A protection against electric shocks is not included though.
