Standard Detail Descriptions

EN 14126:2003 Protective clothing against infective agents

This standard is used to demonstrate the performance of protective garments against infective agents. This is not a ‘stand-alone’ standard and needs to be combined with standards for Type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and/or 6 protective garment.

Types 1, 2 and 5 protective garments are required to be of the ‘full body’ type. Type 3, 4 and 6 protective garment standards include partial body ‘PB’ garments covering only a part of the body.

EN 14605:2005+A1:2009 Protective clothing against liquid chemicals — Performance
requirements for clothing with liquid-tight (Type 3) or spray-tight (Type 4) connections, including items providing protection to parts of the body only (Types PB [3] and PB [4])

 

  • Type 3 chemical protective clothing for resistance to penetration by liquids, shall pass the continuous liquid jet test, and shall have materials that demonstrate chemical permeation resistance.

 

  • Type 4 chemical protective clothing for resistance to penetration by liquids, shall pass the liquid spray test, and shall have materials that demonstrate chemical permeation resistance.

 

  • Partial body protection garments offer protection to specific parts of the body against liquid chemicals. Examples of such garments are laboratory coats, jackets, trousers, aprons, sleeves, hoods (not air supplied), etc. As partial body protection leaves some parts of the body unprotected, only the performance requirements for the clothing material and the seams are
    required.

EN ISO 13982-1 Protective Clothing Used
Against Solid Particles

The ISO 13982-1 standard describes the minimum requirements for chemical protective clothing resistant to penetration of solid particles carried in air. These clothes are clothes that fully protect the body. One-piece jumpsuits or two-piece suits fall into this group. This standard applies only to airborne solid particles. This standard cannot be applied to other forms such as solid chemicals.

EN 13034:2005+A1:2009 Protective clothing against liquid chemicals - Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protective performance against liquid chemicals (Type 6 and Type PB [6] equipment)

  • This document covers both chemical protective suits (Type 6) and partial body protection (Type PB [6]).

 

  • Fabric must meet class 3 repellency for at least one of the 4 chemicals and class 2 for penetration against at least one of the 4 chemicals.

 

  • Type 6 chemical protective suits shall fulfil the requirements of a modified spray test, when combined with additional protective equipment (i.e. for protection of hands, feet, face, head, respiration) as specified in the manufacturer’s instructions. Partial body protection items (Type PB [6]) shall not be tested according to a modified spray test.

EN 1149-5:2008 -Electrostatic properties - Part 5: Material performance and design requirements

  • BS EN 1149-5 is the European Standard for garments that protect against electrostatic discharge in areas where there is a risk of explosion such as petrochemical refineries and fuel distribution companies.
  • Antistatic PPE is certified to EN1149-5 as this standard covers the performance requirements of the garments and refers to the choice of 2 different test methods (EN1149-1 or EN1149-3).
  • EN 1149-1 Electrostatic properties (surface resistivity). Surface resistance is ≤ 2.5·109
  • EN 1149-3 Electrostatic properties (inductive charge). t50 < 4 s or S > 0.2 values.
