Flame retardant clothing gives you the protection you need when working with heat and flames. Great for tradesmen working in heat, welding and flame environments. A flame resistant garment is usually elected based on an employer’s own risk analysis, which determines he accurate garments for the possible incident exposures in a given work environment.
Our extensive range of Flame retardant garments offer protection for welding and when working with heat and flame. We offer several different levels of protection depending on the Risk. We have garments for class 1 and class 2. A full risk assessment should be carried out by the wearer prior to deciding on the level of protection required. Our technical information sheet in our technical information section can advise on the types of Risks and the level of protection required by the wearer.
EN ISO 11611:2015 INFORMATION Protecve clothing for Welding and Allied processes
This Internaonal standard specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protecve clothing used in welding and Allied processes . There are 2 classes with Specific performance requirements
EN ISO 11611: 2015
Class 1 : Protection against less hazardous welding techniques and situaons causing lower levels of splatter and radiant heat
Class 2 : Protection against More hazardous welding techniques and situaons causing higher levels of splatter and radiant heat.
Selectioon criteria for Welders Clothing ( Reference points )
|Type of welders' clothing||Selection criteria relating to the process:||Selection criteria relating to the environmental conditions:|
|Class 1||Manual welding techniques with light formation of spatters and drops, e.g.: — gas welding, — TIG welding, — MIG welding, — micro plasma welding, — brazing, — spot welding, — MMA welding (with rutile-covered electrode).||Operation of machines, e.g. of: — oxygen cutting machines, — plasma cutting machines, — resistance welding machines, — machines for thermal spraying, — bench welding.|
|Class 2||Manual welding techniques with heavy formation of spatters and drops, e.g.: — MMA welding (with basic or cellulose-covered electrode), — MAG welding (with CO2 or mixed gases) , — MIG welding (with high current), — self-shielded flux cored arc welding, — plasma cutting, — gouging, — oxygen cutting, — thermal spraying.||
Operation of machines, e.g.: — in confined spaces, — at overhead welding/cutting or in comparable constrained positions.
