Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies minimum levels of performance requirements for protective clothing against heat and fire designed to be worn during firefighting operations, except protective clothing that is worn during fighting wildland fires (EN 15614) or specialised firefighting (EN 1486). However, it offers some minimum protection against some selected chemicals. This European Standard covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used, the methods of test to be used to determine these performance levels, and marking and information supplied by the manufacturer. The required performance levels may be achieved by the use of one or more garments. This European Standard covers the event of an accidental splash of chemical or flammable liquids but does not cover special clothing for use in other high-risk situations e.g. reflective protective clothing.
