EN ISO 11612:2008, A1, B1, C1
Protective clothing for industrial workers exposed to heat, excluding welding and fire fighting according to European norm EN ISO 11612. The performance levels A1, B1, C1, D0, E1 and F1 are applicable. A means that the garments fulfil the flame spread test; B indicates the performance for convective heat, where 1 is the lowest level applicable for limited risks; C means the performance for radiant heat, where 1 is the lowest level applicable for limited risk, D means the performance for molten aluminium where 1 is the lowest level applicable for limited risk, E means the performance for molten iron splash, where 1 is the lowest level applicable for limited risk and F means the performance for contact heat, where 1 is the lowest level applicable for limited risk This means that the wearer is protected against brief contacts with a flame as well (as to the level indicated) against convective and radiant heat and against a small amount of molten metal splashes.
EN ISO 20471
BS EN 1149-5 is part of a series of standards for test methods and requirements for electrostatic properties of protective clothing.
BS EN 1149-5 specifies material and design requirements for electrostatic dissipative protective clothing. It covers clothing used as part of a total earthed system, to avoid incendiary discharges.
The requirements may not be sufficient in oxygen enriched flammable atmospheres. This standard does not apply to protection against mains voltages.
IEC 61482:2009, Class 1 4kA
Class 1 protects against electric arc 4kA (arc energy 168 kJ).
In the Box Test Method, materials and clothing will be tested using two methods: the material box test method and the garment box test method.
The material box test method is used to measure and determine material response to an arc exposure when tested in a flat configuration. A quantitative measurement of arc thermal performance is made by means of the energy transmitted through the material. During this test, a fabric sample is exposed to an electric arc produced by a 4kA or 7kA short circuit. In this test, the arc does not last any longer than 500ms. The amount of heat transmitted through the sample is measured during and after the test. On the basis of the resulting data and a Stoll curve, the length of time it would take to cause the onset of second-degree burns is subsequently determined. Samples are also assessed for after-flaming, hole formation, melting, etc.
