Flame Retardant Workwear | FR

Flame Retardant workwear and FR clothing

Our industry refers to Flame Retardant and Fire Resistant both as “FR” garments.

(This is a little confusing because technically a RETARDANT garment just slows down the spread of flame or fire; a RESISTANT garment kills the fire or flame (self extinguish). A retardant garment is usually a chemically treated material (such as Proban or Pyrovatex); a resistant material is usually inherently resistant – and made with inherently FR fibres such as modacrylics or aramids like Nomex.

Anyway, we supply them all, and all FR garments will protect you! Our FR workwear complies with EN11612 standard of protection against flame spread.

The most popular FR workwear garments are FR coveralls/overalls/boilersuits. Most of these are chemically treated cotton (Pyrovatex) and so are Flame retardant. These FR coveralls are used widely on oil rigs offshore, and by electricity power plants and utilities.

There are more expensive (but permanent, INHERENTLY flame resistant) coveralls, made of Protex, Indura, Aramid or, the best known inherent brand: Nomex. These inherently FR coveralls are made with manmade fabrics to self-extinguish. All of the above comply to the same Flame spread standard: EN 11612.

We also offer ANTISTATIC coveralls, which comply to EN 1149. Anti static (AST) is increasingly desired, as the carbon fibre grid (2%) in the coverall grounds any static charge build up. (You'd also need to wear Antistatic footwear - eg our antistatic footwear). 

If there is a risk of a high voltage electric arc flash (4KA +), we supply garments to ELECTRIC ARC standard EN 61482 and appropriate ear defenders to protect your eardrums from the loud arc flash bang.

For more intense, heavy duty grinding and welding, where there is a real likelihood of molten splashes, we stock welding garments, certified to EN 11611 welding and allied processes standard.

As the leading UK specialists in FR clothing, we have over 40,000 FR garments in stock (yes!), including FR  FR waterproof rainsuits, FR coveralls, FR jackets, FR trousers, FR shirts, FR Sweaters, FR flash hoods and undergarments.

Please do call us with your queries. 


EUROPEAN SAFETY STANDARDS FOR FLAME PROTECTION

EN533:1997 (is now superseded by EN ISO 14116:2008)

Protection against heat and flame - Limited to flame spread materials and material assemblies.

EN ISO 14116:2008 (successor of EN533:1997)

Protection against heat and flame - Limited to all flame spread materials, material assemblies and clothing.

EN531:1995 (is now superseded by EN ISO 11612:2008)

Protective clothing for workers who are exposed to heat.

EN ISO 11612:2008 (the successor of EN 531:1995)

EN1149-5:2008

Protective clothing - Electrostatic properties. Part 5: Electrostatic material performance and design requirements.

EN ISO 14116

This standard specifies the performance required for the limited flame spread properties of materials, material assemblies and protective clothing in order to decrease the possibility of the clothing burning and thereby itself constituting a hazard.

EN ISO 14116:2008
  • Limited flame spread
  • Tensile strength resistance
  • Tear strength resistance
  • Seam strength resistance
  • EN ISO 11612

    The performance requirements are applicable to garments which could be worn for a wide range of uses: eg where there is a need for workwear to limit flame spread; or where the user can be close to radiant or convective or contact heat or molten metal splashes.

  • Code A: Limited flame spread
  • Code B: Protects against Convective Heat - 3 levels
  • Code C: Protects against Radiant Heat - 4 levels
  • Code D:Protects against Molten Aluminium Splash - 3 levels
  • Code E: Protects against Molten Iron Splash - 3 levels

    This safety standard specifies the minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing for use in a range of welding and allied processes (excluding hand protection).

    The international safety standard specifies two classes with specific safety requirements.

    Class 1 is protection against less hazardous welding operations which causes lower levels of spatter and radiant heat

    Class 2 is protection against more hazardous welding techniques, which causes high levels of spatter and radiant heat.

    EN ISO 11611:2007

  • Tensile resistance

    Is the European standard for protective clothing protection against the danger caused by static electricity discharge. This standard does not apply for the protection against mains voltages.

    EN1149-1:1996: Test measure for conducting fabrics.

    EN1149-3:2004: Charge decay test method for all fabrics.

    EN61482-1-2:2007 (current) - (Identical toIEC 61482- 2:2009 (new)

    This European test method measures the fabrics and garment systems abilities to protect against the thermal effects of an electric arc event.

    The Two protection classes are :

  • Class 1 4kA
  • Class 2 7kA
  • THERMAL HAZARDS OF AN ELECTRIC ARC

    An electric ARC or blast as a result of a disruption or short circuit in an electric installation generates a sudden release of intense heat and light which causes serious burns, blindness or even death. This blazing bright electric discharge between two conducting electrodes

  • Lasts for a short time (0.5 sec, 1 sec and rarely >1 sec)
  • Develops a strong radiant heat (7000 °C),creates physical forces, a pressure wave and generates pressure shrapnel
  • Generates a splash of molten metal particles or even produces vaporized metal
  • Up to 165 db noise level
  • CONFORM TO THE NEW ARC STANDARD IEC 61482-2

    Superceded CLC/TS 50354:2003 (OR ENV 50354)

    EC 61482-2 specific requirements applicable to materials and garments (excluding) protection of head, hands and feet of protective clothing for electrical workers against thermal hazards of an electric arc. The requirements doesn't address electric shock hazards nor the effects of noise, UV emissions, pressure shrapnel or toxic influences.

    ARC THERMAL RESISTANCE:

    ARC in a secure box test according to IEC 61482-1-2. This test generates ARC exposures on low voltage service or maintenance conditions: switching boxes, cable distribution, distribution sub-stations, where the ARC is directed at the front of a worker at chest height. This test is performed on the fabric as well as on the complete garment.

    Two classes have been defined:

  • CLASS 1: short circuit current 4Ka
  • CLASS 2: short circuit current 7Ka
  • EN 13034:2005 + A1:2009

    Protective Clothing against Liquid Chemicals. Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing that offers limited protective performance against liquid chemicals (Type 5 and Type PB 6 equipment).

    This standard has the minimum requirements for the limited use and re-useable of a limited performance chemical protective clothing. Limited chemical protective clothing is intended for the use in cases of a potential exposure to a light spray, liquid aerosols or low volume splashes, against which a liquid permeation barrieris not required.

    This safety standard covers chemical protective suits (Type 6) and partial body protection (TY;e PB [6]). Chemical Protective suits (Type 6) cover and protects at least the trunk and the limbs, e.g. one piece coveralls or two piece suits, with or without hood, or boot covers. Partial body protection of similar limited performance (Type PB [6]) covers and gives protection to specific parts of the body. e.g. coats, aprons, sleeves etc.

    ATEX DIRECTIVE

    The ATEX Directive defines which equipment is allowed in an environment where an explosive atmosphere may exist. We would recommend using garments that are certified to EN1149 and EN ISO 11611 for added protection in an ATEX environment.
