We develop clothing specifically for the requirements of each field of activity.

We take into account the state of the art and all relevant national and international standards. The personal protective equipment (PPE) was manufactured on the basis of the European Directive 89/686 EEC and, at the time of delivery, answers the stated protection objectives. Please also refer to the notes and labelling in your clothing.

Here is a list of German (DIN), European (EN) and applicable worldwide (ISO) standards, which underlie our products, incl. a brief description. For more detailed information on the standards, you can request our manufacturer information.

EN ISO 14116
This international standard specifies the requirements for the limited flame spread of materials and protective clothing. It does not apply with firefighters (EN 469) and welding protection (EN ISO 11611). The protective clothing is designed to protect the wearer against accidental and brief contact with small pilot flames in cases in which no significant exposure to heat and no other heat sources are present. There are 3 performance categories.
Index 1: Materials with limited flame spread. Flaming droplets and any afterglow must not be detected. These materials may not be worn directly on the skin.
Index 2: In addition to the requirements of index 1, pitting must not occur at any flame test.
Index 3: In addition to the requirements of index 2, the burning time after any flame test must not be more than 2 seconds.
DIN EN ISO 11611
This standard specifies test methods and general performance requirements for protective clothing for persons in welding and cognate processes with equivalent risks. This protective clothing protects the wearer against small metal splashes and against brief contact with flames. Under normal welding conditions it also provides a certain isolation from DC voltage live conductors up to 100 V. The standard contains 2 performance categories (category 1 is the lower, category 2 the higher one), which classify the hazards in the welding process, such as contact with weld spatter and radiant heat.
DIN EN ISO 11612
This European standard applies for protective clothing for workers exposed to heat (excluding clothing for firefighters and welders) and is intended for protection against brief contact with flames and at least some heat. The heat can be convective, radiant or caused by large splashes of molten metal splashes, or as a combination of these forms. The performance categories are A - limited flame spread, B - convective heat, C - radiant heat, D - molten aluminium splash, E - molten iron splashes, F - contact heat.
DIN EN 61482-1-1
The standard describes test methods to measure the thermal electric arc characteristics of materials used for heat-resistant and non-flammable clothing for people who are exposed to the thermal effects of electric arcs. The characteristic values are determined by the ATPV process.
DIN EN 61482-1-2
The standard describes test methods to measure the arc thermal characteristics of materials used for heat-resistant and non-flammable clothing for people who are exposed to the thermal effects of electric arcs. This method uses the box test to determine the resistance of materials to the thermal stresses of an electric arc. A distinction is made between two performance categories.
IEC 61482-2
The standard specifies the requirements and test methods for single materials and material compositions as well as protective clothing, which are designed for working under voltage in the medium voltage range. With this standard only thermal effects of an electric arc are evaluated, electric shock hazards will not be considered. The identification label must list, with which method the protective effect of the clothing has been proven.
EN 14058
Protective clothing for protection against a cool environment is effective for a limited period of time and is determined to protect the wearer against temperatures of -5° C and above and in addition to wind and high humidity. The category of thermal resistance must be specified.
EN ISO 20471
This European standard specifies the requirements for protective clothing that visually distinguishes the wearer from its environment, with the intention of making him visible in dangerous situations under all possible lighting conditions during the day as well as by illuminating him with light sources.
EN 13034, Typ 6
A hazmat suit type 6 protects the covered region of the body of the wearer in case of occasional contact with small amounts (drops, splashes) of toxic, less toxic (harmful), caustic or irritant liquids over a limited period of time. After exposure to chemicals, the garment should be replaced or cleaned. The protective effect is mainly due to a dense fabric construction and an acid-resistant finish. Against solvents no protective effect is ensured.
