EN ISO 11611

Certified workwear for protection from welding and similar processes Protective clothing certified according to EN ISO 11611. This means that the garment is designed to protect against splashes (small splashes of molten metal), short contact with flame, radiant heat from an Electric Arc which are used for welding and allied processes, and minimising the possibility of electrical shock by short circuit, accidental contact with live electrical conductors at voltages up to approx. 100 V d. c. under normal welding conditions. It is necessary for a coverall or a jacket / trouser combination to be worn fully fastened for full protection.

IEC 61482-2

Certified Workwear for Thermal Hazard from an Electric Arc (ARC) Protective clothing certified according to IEC 61482-2. Under test method EN61482-1-2 ’Box Test’, Class 1 means that the material and the garment have been tested according to Box test with an exposure of 4 kA for 0.5 seconds. Class 2 means that the material and the garment have been tested according to Box test with an exposure of 7 kA for 0.5 seconds. Under test method EN61482-1-1 ’Open Arc’ Test, the result is given as a figure of cal/cm2. It is necessary for a coverall or a jacket /trouser combination to be worn fully fastened for full protection and should only be worn over appropriate certified FR / ARC workwear.
