Protective clothing is designed in accordance with European established EN standards. The standards have been developed to provide increased quality and safety for you as a carrier of the product in your work. They are an extension of the EU legislation for personal protective equipment, EU Directive 89/686 / EEC.

The different EN standards
Symbol EN standard Description
En 1149-5 En 1149-5 Protective clothing with electrostatic properties

Protective clothing with antistatic properties that reduce the risk of discharge of electrical energy and are intended for use where there is a risk that static sparks can ignite flammable substances such as gas or oil.The standard states precise requirements for how the garment should be designed, for example, metal details on the outside of the garment must be covered.

  • Electrical surface resistance
  • Elektriskt vertikalt motstånd

The certification according to EN 1149-5 does not give a classification; the protective properties of the garment are either approved or not approved.

Symbol EN standard Description
Protection-against-particulate-radioactive-contamination-2484 En 1073-2 Skyddskläder mot radioaktiva föroreningar

Requirements and test methods for non-ventilated protective clothing against particulate radioactive compounds. This standard refers to protective clothing that covers the body, arms and legs. Other parts of the body are protected with other personal protective equipment.

The properties that are evaluated include;

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Puncture resistance
  • Tear strength
  • Flammability
  • Leakage resistance
  • Seam strength
  • Strength

The garment also undergoes a practical function test with test persons where function and ergonomics are checked.

unnamed En 14126 Protective clothing against infectious substances

The purpose of the standard is to evaluate the garment’s properties to protect both the wearer of the garment from infectious substances but also to protect others from the spread of infection when the wearer has removed the contaminated protection.

The parameters verified according to the standard include the following;

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Seam strength
  • Tear strength
  • Resistance to cracking in folds
  • Breaking strength
  • Puncture resistance
  • Resistance to permeation of chemicals
  • Fluid rejection
  • Resistance to penetration of liquids
  • Ignition resistance and Flame retardant properties
  • Resistance to infectious substances (in liquid and in contact)

If the garment can be washed at least 5 times, the material must undergo 5 washing cycles before testing.
