Standards

Norms for workwear


To give users of our workwear optimum protection, many of our products are developed such that both the clothing's design and the fabric comply with different international standards and norms.


Our Safety and Safety+ series in particular come with many different certifications. This is an area where compliance with different standards is essential for the clothing to be fit for purpose and to give users optimal protection.



EN 343

EN 343

This pictogram states the degree of protection. The figures next to the pictogram state:
x: The outdoor jacket's ability to resist water penetration from the outside (water resistance).
3 = Highest protection
1 = Lowest protection
y: Resistance to moisture transfer (breathability)indicates how well moisture from perspiration can escape from the inside and out through the outer fabric.
3 = Very good drainage
1 = Poor drainage


EN ISO 20471

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.

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.

(A1) Limited flame spread
(A2) Edge ignition
(B) Convective heat, level class 1-3, where 3 is the highest
(C) Radiant heat, levels 1-4, where 4 is the highest
(D) Molten aluminium splash, levels 1-3, where 3 is the highest
(E) Molten iron splash, levels 1-3, where 3 is the highest
(F) 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.

1 Protects against less hazardous welding techniques and situations, where limited spatter and radiant heat occur. Metal spatter 15 drops. Radiant heat 7 seconds.
(A1) Limited flame spread
2 Protects against more hazardous welding techniques and situations where there is greater spatter and radiant heat. Metal spatter 25 drops. Radiant heat 16 seconds.
(A2) Limited flame spread, edge ignition


EN 1149-5

EN 1149-5

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.


FprEN 61482-2

FprEN 61482-2

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

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.


EN 13034-6

EN 13034-6

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
  • Dimethylbenzene
  • Xylol
  • Butanol-1
  • Phosphoric acid 10% solution


EN ISO 13688
