EN ISO 11612

EN 11612 protection fabric

REQUIREMENTS FOR FABRIC AND MATERIALS FOR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING FOR HEAT AND FLAMES

The EN ISO 11612 standard analyses protective properties of garments, their materials (protective fabrics) and accessories when presented with heat and flames. In addition, this standard analyses whether resistance, shrinkage and useful life meet minimum levels. All this is certified in official ILAC-MRA laboratories.
