EN ISO 11611 PROTECTIVE CLOTHING FOR USE IN WELDING & ALLIED PROCESSES
EN ISO 11611 Welding Standard Header ImageEN 11612 is the European Norm for PPE used in Welding or related processes where there is a risk of contact with flames, radiant heat from the arc, risk of splatter (small splashes of molten metal) and risk of electric shock by short term, accidental contact with electrical conductors (at voltages up to approximately 100 v DC in normal conditions of welding).
There are two different classes within this standard, both with different levels of protection. The Welding specification of the fabric is tested with 15 Drops (to achieve Class 1) or 25 Drops (to achieve Class 2) of molten metal. There are also design critical specifications that must be adhered with this type of garment including pocket flap overlaps and fastening systems.
