Over deze norm
This International Standard specifies test methods and minimum requirements for protective gloves to be worn during fire fighting and associated activities where there is a risk of heat and/or flame. The purpose of this International Standard is to provide minimum performance requirements for protective gloves designed to protect against injury in fire fighting operations. This International Standard covers the general glove design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used and the methods of test for determining these performance levels. With the exception of flame resistance and ergonomic requirements, this International Standard establishes three levels of performance for all other performance requirements. Type 3 gloves provide a higher level of thermal insulation and physical protection, and require liquid penetration resistance (including synthetic blood) as compared to Type 2 gloves. Type 1 gloves are intended to provide minimum requirements for gloves in any fire fighting application, such as for wildland fire fighting. Annex E provides a comparison of the performance requirements for all three glove types.
