Standard EN 343
It applies to the performance of materials and clothing in terms of protection against bad weather, rain, fog and soil humidity. It meets technical clothing requirements such as welded seams or the use of waterproof fabrics. This standard controls 2 points:
- The resistance of water penetration into the garment, categorized from 1 to 4
- The breathability resistance of the garment, categorized from 1 to 4
Standard EN 14404+A1
It defines the requirements for protecting the knees during all professional activities requiring a kneeling position. It applies to our pants associated with our knee pads. The Cordura® and Oxford Tech knee pad pockets + the France Textile knee pads contribute to resistance to penetration by objects under a force of at least 100 newtons (level 1). Our knee pads are classified type 2 because they fit into pockets integrated into the work pants, located at knee level and provided for this purpose.
Standard EN 13688
International standard specifying general performance requirements relating to ergonomics, safety, size designation, aging, compatibility and marking of protective clothing and the information to be provided by us with protective clothing. It is only used in conjunction with other standards containing requirements for protection performance.
Standard EN 20471
It specifies the requirements for high visibility clothing that can visually signal the user's presence. These clothes are meant to be seen in any light, day or night. This standard controls the surface area of the retro-reflective strips and the surface area of fluorescent material, listed in class from 1 to 3.
EN ISO 20345 standard
It guarantees that the shoes are suitable for the world of work and professionals. It ensures the presence of a protective toe cap on the front of the shoe to protect the toes from impacts equivalent to 200 joules. It also protects against the risk of crushing above a load of 1500 decanewtons. According to this standard, there are several classifications defining the use for which safety shoes are intended (SB, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5).
Standard EN 388
This European Standard specifies the requirements, test methods, markings and information to be provided for protective gloves against the mechanical risks of abrasion, slicing, tearing, puncture and, where applicable, impact. The standard measures 4 levels of resistance to the following attacks:
- A : Resistance to abrasion ( from 1 to 4 )
- B : Resistance to cutting by blade ( from 1 to 5 )
- C : Tear resistance ( from 1 to 4 )
- D : Puncture resistance ( 1 to 4 )
- The ideal glove does not exist, we must find the right compromise between these 4 indicators. When an X replaces a number, the aggression test has not been tested.
