TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Our products meet the highest standard in safety and protection. Here are the explanations for all the safety certificates on our products & functional materials.

Declarations of Conformity


 

EN ISO 20471

Protective garments with enhanced visibility. High visibility garments have fluorescent surfaces and reflectors that conform to certification requirements on the design according to three different classes, and have been tested before and after washing. 5 washes is the minimum and if the garment has been tested and approved for a higher number of washes this should be stated on the care label.

 

CLASS 1

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.14 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.10 m≤, for use where the lowest level of visibility is demanded.

CLASS 2

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.50 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.13 m≤, for use where the visibility requirement is not as high as class 3.

CLASS 3

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.80 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.20 m≤, where the highest level of visibility is demanded. Protective garments must cover the torso and at least have sleeves or full-length trousers. The reflectors must wrap around the torso and arm or leg. Minimum reflector width must be 50 mm.


EN 343

Basic requirements for rainwear puts demands on water vapour resistance, breathing properties, tear strength and abrasion resistance. The upper number indicates the garment’s waterproof class. (max 3). The lower number indicates the garment’s water vapour resistance (max 3).
