EN 14058 Garments protection against cold environments

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING. GARMENTS FOR PROTECTION AGAINST COLD ENVIRONMENTS

EN ISO 14058 – This standard specifies the requirements and test methods for the features of garments for protection of the body against cold environments with temperatures above -5 ºC.

EN ISO 14058 CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

TEST METHOD

DESCRIPTION

MINIMUM COMPLIANCE VALUES

EN 31092 o EN ISO 5085-1

Thermal resistance (RCT): RCT is tested for all layers of the garment according the EN 31092 or EN ISO 5085-1 standard, depending on the sample thickness. The value obtained is determined according to the type of minimum compliance values.

RTC (m² · K/W)

Performance level Min Max
Class 1 0.06 > 0.12
Clase 2 0.12 > 0.18
Clase 3 0.18 > 0.25

EN ISO 15831

  • Resulting effective thermal insulation (Icler) (optional): moving manikin.
  • Requirement: Icler ≥ 0.17 m² · K/W.
  • Simple garments: tested with reference clothing R.
  • Groups: tested with reference clothing B (polar type).
  • Test parameters are: HR 50%.
  • Air velocity: 0.3 – 0.5 m/s.
  • Walking velocity: 1 m/s.

EN ISO 9237

  • Air permeability (AP): must be measured for the entire group.
  • If, due to technical reasons, the group of materials cannot be tested as one piece, components must be tested individually and are measured based on the component with the lowest value.
  • Tests are performed at a differential pressure of 100 Pa on a surface of 20 cm².
  • There are three types of classes according to air permeability.

Class 1100
Class 25≤ 100
Class 3≤ 5

EN 20811

  • Water penetration resistance (WP) (optional): measured from the exterior layer, along with all impermeable layers and their seams.
  • There are two levels of classification: class 1 and class 2.
  • Test parameters are as follows: water pressure increase rate of 980 ± 50 Pa/min.
  • Number of samples: 5 for seam testing and 5 for material testing.
  • Sample size must have a minimum diameter of 130 mm.

EN 31092

Water vapour resistance (RET): measured if water penetration resistance is required.

The group of all layers (excluding underwear) must be less than 55 m² · Pa/W.
