ISO 11612, ISO 11611, EN 1486 : Specific standards against specific risks

To ensure protection of persons subject to identified risks, EDC offers a complete range of category 2 or 3 PPEs that meet specific protection standards, in particular:

     EN 11612 – Industrial Heat 

Category 2 or 3 PPEs protecting  against heat and flame. It covers a wide range of uses for which final performances are indicated by different indices:

• A: flame behaviour

• B - level 1 to 3: resistance to convective heat

• C - level 1 to 4: resistance to radiant heat

• D - level 1 to 3: resistance to molten aluminium projections

• E - level 1 to 3: resistance to molten metal splashes

• F - level 1 to 3: resistance to contact heat


     EN 11611 – Welding and allied processes

Category 2 PPEs protecting against small splashes of molten metal, short contact with a flame and radiant heat. These PPEs also guarantee a certain degree of electrical insulation.

There are two performance classes, Class 1 and Class 2, the latter offering greater protection.
