Our range of Flame Retardant garments cover a multitude of British Standards
EN470 - Protective clothing for use in Welding and applied processes : General requirements. Does not cover clothing worn for special welding jobs
EN531 - Protective clothing for industrial workers exposed to heat: Excluding Firefighters and Welders clothing
A - Limited flame spread, and at least one of: B# - Convective heat resistance (# = 1 to 5) C# - Radiant heat resistance (# = 1 to 4) D# - Molten aluminium splash (# = 1 to 3) E# - Molton iron splash (# = 1 to 3)
In all cases, higher number denotes better performance. If no number given, no protection is claimed.
EN532- Protective clothing against heat and flame : Test method for limited flame spread
EN533- Protection against heat and flame : Limited flame spread materials and material assemblies. This standard refers only to the materials or material assemblies from which garments with limited flame spread properties are made. Such information may appear in the manufactures literature. Markings in the form : EN533 Flame spread index/durability.
Flame Spread Index - 1,2 or 3 - Limited flame spread index (3 is best). If index 1 materials are present : Use only over EN533 Index 2 or 3 material and DO NOT use next to the skin.
EN366 - Protection against heat and fire : Method of test : Evaluation of materials and material assemblies when exposed to a source of radiant heat.
