EN 511 Protecive gloves against cold.
This standard applies to any gloves to protect the hands against convective and contact cold down to –50 °C. Protection against cold is expressed by a pictogram followed by a series of 3 performance levels, relating to specific protective qualities.
a. Resistance to convective cold: Performance level 0–4. Based on the thermal insulation properties of the glove which are obtained by measuring the transfer of cold via convection.
b. Resistance to contact cold: Performance level 0–4. Based on the thermal resistance of the glove material when exposed to contact with a cold object.
c. Permeability by water: 0 or 1. 0 = water penetration after 30 minutes of exposure. 1 = no water penetration.
X=performance level not tested.
All gloves must also achieve at least performance level 1 for abrasion and tear according to EN 388.
EN 11611 Welding protection.
EN 11611 This standard specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing including hoods, aprons, sleeves and gaiters that are designed to protect the wearer's body including head and feet and that are to be worn during welding and allied processes with comparable risks.
A1: Indicates that the garments meet the requirements for limited flame spread for surface ignition.
A2: Indicates that the garments meet the requirements for limited flame spread for bottom-edge ignition.
Class 1: Manual welding techniques with light formation of splatters and drops.
Class 2: Manual welding techniques with heavy formation of splatters and drops.
EN 11612 Heat & flame protection.
This standard specifies performance for garments made from flexible materials, which are designed to protect the wearer's body, except the hands, from heat and /or flame.
|A||Limited flame spread|
|A2||Bottom edge ignition|
|D||Molten aluminium splash|
|E||Molten iron splash|
EN 1149 Electrostatic properties.
This European Standard specifies material and design requirements for electrostatic dissipative protective clothing, used as part of a total earthed system, to avoid incendiary discharges.
The material shall meet requirements according to EN 1149-1 (Surface resistance) or 1149-3 (Induction charging). The requirements may not be sufficient in oxygen enriched flammable atmospheres. This European Standard is not applicable for protection against mains voltages.
EN 14404 Knee Protection Standard.
This standard encompasses the size, force distribution, penetration resistance and user testing of kneepads.
Type 2, Level 1
Reliable knee protection for craftsmen with a mobile working environment that involves regular kneeling to perform their job. Designed to protect the knees from pebbles, nails and other small objects up to 1 cm on hard and flat surfaces.
Type 2, Level 0
Effective knee protection for craftsmen who occasionally need to work on their knees indoors. Designed to protect the knees on flat surfaces.
Snickers Workwear kneepads are designated and certified for use with the Snickers Workwear trousers' knee pockets, according to EN 14404:2010. The kneepads are not certified for other branded trousers.
