For over 117 years we’ve possessed an unrelenting ambition to produce the world’s most trusted and requested protective wear. Through the decades, we have continuously proven our dedication to quality, producing world beating safety garments, foot protection, hand protection and PPE, while pushing the boundaries in protection technologies. Technologies that make the workplace a safer place.
EN ISO 11612 Heat & FlameThis test uses standard methods and conditions to predict the performance of fabric/garments in the event of contact with heat or ﬂames. Speciﬁc testing is listed below: Dimensional change, Limited ﬂame spread (A1+A2), Convective heat (B) - 3 levels, Radiant heat (C) - 4 levels, Molten aluminium splash (D) – 3 levels, Molten iron splash (E) – 3 levels, Contact heat (F) – 3 levels (temperature 250 degrees Celsius)
EN ISO 11611 Welding & AlliedStandard speciﬁes two classes with speciﬁc performance requirements. Class 1: is protection against less hazardous welding techniques and situations causing lower levels of spatter and radiant heat. Class 2: is protection against more hazardous welding techniques and situations causing higher levels of spatter and radiant heat.
IEC 61482-2 Protective Clothing Thermal Arc HazardsStandard for protective clothing against the thermal effects of an electric arc event. Two different test methods: Open Arc IEC 61482-1-1 and Box test EN 61482-1-2. OPEN ARC - IEC 61842-1-1 (USA). The first result, ELIM - The maximum incident energy (cal/cm²) the garment can withstand before the wearer would have a 0% probability of a second degree burn. The second result is either: ATPV (Arc Thermal Performance Value, cal/cm²) The maximum incident energy the garment can withstand before the wearer would have 50% probability of a second degree burn or EBT (Energy Break Open Threshold, cal/cm²) The incident energy at which a 50% probability of a breakopen occurs resulting in a second degree burn. Since ELIM indicates an energy value at 0% probability of a second degree burn and ATPV/EBT at 50% probability, the ELIM value is usually lower than ATPV/EBT. Large differences between the ELIM and ATPV/EBT results highlight the importance of wearing several layers of garments to ensure you are properly protected. EN 61482-1-2 (Europe) is evaluated in two classes in the same test: APC1 protects against electric arc of 4kA (arc energy 168 kJ), APC2 protects against electric arc of 7kA (arc energy 320 kJ). Unlike the American standard, there is not a result scale in this garment tests, only two levels where the garment either passes or fails. A garment with one layer of Flame Retardant fabric usually passes APC 1 - even thin shirt fabrics. To pass APC 2, a system with two or three fabric layers or a lined garment is normally required. This makes it more difficult to adapt the protection to the risk, without compromising on comfort. As APC 1 is a relatively low level of protection, we always recommend a basic protection of at least 8 cal/cm².
Treated FR GarmentsFR treated fabrics are based on cotton, blended with polyester, para-aramid or polyamide. These fabrics get their FR property from the chemical treatment that is applied to the fabric. This chemical treatment is executed in such a way that it fully penetrates the fiber and as such is bonded throughout the entire fabric. As a result of this treatment, the fabric becomes flame retardant and keeps this property during the lifetime of the garment. PROS: very good protection against molten metal, good protection against heat and ARC, relatively cheap, good value for money in dirty environments where expected lifespan is not very long. CONS: wash fastness is typically not very good (pale look after several washes), to achieve similar FR properties as inherent FR the fabrics typically become a bit heavier and therefore tend to be a bit less comfortable.
