*Calorie is the unit of measure of the heat energy of an arc flash and the protective level of FR clothing. The bigger the calories number, the greater the heat energy level of arc flash and the greater the protective level of the clothing. You will be protected from an electric arc if your clothing has a higher calorie arc rating than the calories of heat generated.

Anti Static and Fire Retardant protective clothing for exposure to heat and flame

The standards with the essential requirements of the European Directive 89/686/EEC and EU Regulation 2016/425 concerning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Type examination proved that the garments comply with the harmonized standards EN ISO13688 (2013), EN 1149-5 (2018) and EN ISO 11612 (2015) levels A1 B1 C1.

EN ISO 11612:2015 – Protection against heat and flame

Garments meet requirements for A1, B1, C1. Wearer is protected against short contact with flames as well as convective heat and radiation heat.

A1: outer material tested on flame spread ac- cording to EN15025 procedure. A1: surface ignition.

B1:  convective heat: 3 levels of which 1 is lowest.

C1:  radiation heat: 4 levels of which 1 is lowest.

Dn:  molten aluminium: no protection provided.

En:  molten iron: no protection provided.

Fn:  contact heat: no protection provided.

Note: n=0 denotes that no protection is provided against this specific risk.

EN ISO 1149-5 – Electrostatic properties

Garments meets requirements for EN 1149-5.

Tested in accordance with EN 1149-2008 measurement of charge decay.

Garment is designed to prevent discharges of static electricity.

This garment does not protect against main voltages and it does not offer protection in oxygen rich environments.
