The majority of our workwear is Oeko-Tex certified.
Oeko-Tex is the world's leading health certification for textiles.
In short, Oeko-tex certification guarantees that the fabric/product is not harmful to the wearer's health.
The 'Confidence in Textiles' logo is familiar to most people.
Oeko-Tex 100 is a human-ecological product standard.
The textiles are tested for harmful chemicals and dyestuffs.

This pictogram states the degree of protection. The figures next to the pictogram state:
The outdoor jacket's ability to resist water penetration from the outside (water resistance).
Resistance to moisture transfer (breathability)indicates how well moisture from perspiration can escape from the inside and out through the outer fabric.
Very good drainage
Protection from solar ultraviolet radiation
In addition to protecting yourself from danger at the workplace, it is also important to look after your body. Some textiles are therefore specially developed to provide protection from solar ultraviolet radiation, as it is harmful to human health. In much of our workwear, we have chosen to use fabrics with UV-801 certification to give the user a higher degree of protection.
By choosing UV-801-certified clothing, you ensure optimum protection against the sun’s hazardous rays.

EN ISO 20471
EN ISO 20471 standard is divided into 3 classes. The class designation describes how well the product is able to make the user visible. The greater the area of fluorescent material and reflection, the higher the classification. The fluorescent material offers greater visibility in daylight and twilight, while the reflective parts become visible when a vehicle’s light or a work light is directed at the wearer in the dark.
Railway Group Standard sets out the minimum spetification for high visibility warning clothing ind the Rail Industry.
EN ISO 11612
Protective clothing in accordance with EN ISO 11612 protects against short-term exposure to heat and flame. This standard is
divided into different categories, where the code letter indicates which requirement is met by the article of clothing in question. Each category is also broken down into different levels, depending on the degree of protection offered.
Limited flame spread
Open flame, levecllass1-3, where 3 is the highest
Radiant heat, levels 1-4, where 4 is the highest
Molten aluminium splash, levels 1-3, where 3 is the highest
Molten iron splash, levels 1-3, where 3 is the highest
Contact heat, levels 1-3, where 3 is the highest
EN ISO 11611
Protective clothing in accordance with EN ISO 11611 protects against welding/spatter of melted metal and sparks as well as heat in the form of convection- or radiant heat.
Protects against less hazardous welding techniques and situations, where limited spatter and radiant heat occur. Metal spatter 15 drops. Radiant heat 7 seconds.
Limited flame spread
Protects against more hazardous welding techniques and situations where there is
greater spatter and radiant heat. Metal spatter 25 drops. Radiant heat 16 seconds
Limited flame spread, edge ignition
Protective clothing with anti-static properties. This clothing protects against sudden discharges of electrostatic energy where there is a risk that static sparks may ignite combustible or explosive atmospheres.
The user must be correctly earthed, for example by wearing suitable footwear, and the clothing must be connected to the body.
Protective clothing in accordance with EN 61482-1-2 protects against thermal hazards from an electric arc. This standard states that such clothing offers protection against electric arcs and is divided into 2 classes.
Class 1 Protection against electric arc 4kA
Class 2 Protection against electric arc 7kA
EN ISO 14116
Protective clothing in accordance with EN ISO 14116 protects against short-term contact with heat and flame. If protection against longer-lasting heat is necessary, then standards such as EN ISO 11612 are more suitable. This standard is divided into 3 groups.
Protective clothing in accordance with EN 13034-6 protects against splashes from liquid chemicals and is intended for use in cases entailing sufficiently low risk assessment and when a complete protective barrier against liquids is not necessary, i.e. when the user is in a position to react in due time when his or her clothing has become contaminated. Low risk may be potential exposure to small volumes of spray or occasional low-volume splashes.
The product has been tested for the following chemicals:
- Sulphuric acid 30% solution
- Caustic soda 10% solution
- Phosphoric acid 10% solution
