Good to know

  • Garments that are dirty, wet or sweaty provide less flame protection.
  • After a flame retardant garment is exposed to flames, it is ruined. Even if the damage is not visible, the fabric is weakened and holes will form when it is washed.
  • Garments may only be patched using a fabric that at least meets the requirements of the standard for the garment. For example, a garment certified according to EN ISO 11611 may only be patched with a fabric that meets EN ISO 11611 requirements.
  • Transfers and embroideries which are tested against flame spread may be applied.
  • For high visibility garments (certified according to EN 471/EN ISO 20471), large transfers and embroidery are not permitted as the area of fluorescent material must be of a specific size to achieve the class for which the garment is certified.
  • The reflective tape on our flame retardant garments is flame retardant and approved according to EN ISO 14116, EN 469 and EN 471/EN ISO 20471.
  • All the linings in our flame retardant garments are approved according to EN ISO 14116.
  • None of our products contain PBB (polybrominated biphenyl) or PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ethers).
  • Where flame retardant clothing is concerned, different occupational groups have different needs.
