Standards and certification

High visibility

EN ISO 20471: 2013
High visibility


X = surface area class of fluorescent fabric and reflective strips (3 classes)

High-visibility warning clothing makes the wearer more visible during the day, at twilight and at night. It is legally required for anyone working on roadways and on construction sites. Even if only a limited part of the day is spent in a workplace with traffic, safety clothing must always be worn.

There are 3 classes of high visibility clothing. The more fluorescent and reflective material present in the garment, the higher the class and the visibility of the wearer*. Always check first which safety class is required for your specific work situation.

*Note that personalising your high visibility workwear reduces the surface area of the fluorescent material. This process may jeopardise the certification of the garment. Embroidering without prior permission from a notified body is prohibited. Please contact your safety advisor for these purposes.

CLASS 3
Must be worn by everybody working on building sites, roads with a speed limit over 60 km/h, active train lines and during rescue operations.

Surface area of fluorescent material at least 0.80m²
Surface area of reflective material at least 0.20m²

CLASS 2

May be worn by people supervising the activities where class 3 warning clothing is required. Worn in good weather conditions and where visibility is adequate.

Surface area of fluorescent material at least 0.50m²
Surface area of reflective material at least 0.13m²

CLASS 1
May only be worn by people visiting a site where class 3 warning clothing is required. These visitors must be accompanied by people who work on the site. If your activities during the day vary, or if you are in any doubt, class 3 clothing is recommended.

Surface area of fluorescent material at least 0.14m²
Surface area of reflective material at least 0.10m²

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:
Protective clothing: general requirements. Specifies general health and ergonomic requirements as well as ageing, size designation, labelling and user instructions.

Protection against cold environments

EN 14058:2004
Protection against cold environments


X (thermal resistance class 1 - 3)
X (air permeability class 1 - 3, optional)
X (water penetration resistance class 1 - 2, optional)
X (resultant effective thermal insulation, optional)
X (effective thermal insulation, optional)

These garments protect its wearer against cold environments (temperature up to -5°C). An X means that the garment has not been tested on that specific characteristic. To meet this norm, the garments should be worn completely closed. If there are adjustment possibilities (i.e. on wrists or waist), these should also be used. The thermic insulation can decrease if the garment gets wet and after cleaning procedure. Keep garments in a dry and well-ventilated place in order to maintain the level of protection. Wearing extra protection to prevent cooling of for example head, hands and feet is optional with EN 14058:2004.

Protection against the rain and bad weather

EN 343: 2003 + A1: 2007
Protection against the rain and bad weather

X = water resistance
X = moisture vapour permeability

These garments protect against rain, snow, fog and soil moisture. The garments and the seams are tested for their resistance to water penetration and water vapour resistance. There are 3 classes. Class 3 offers the highest level of waterproofness and breathability.

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:

Protection for work in kneeling position

EN 14404: 2004 + A1: 2010
Protection for work in kneeling position

This standard describes the test methods and requirements for knee protectors for work in kneeling position.

The DASSY knee pockets are certified in combination with the DASSY® CRATOS knee pads and offer a protection type 2, level 1, which means that they are suitable for flat and non-flat floor surfaces and offer resistance to penetration by objects < 1 cm.

There are four types of knee-protectors:

Type 1: “independent” knee protectors.
Type 2: pad in kneepad pocket on trousers.
Type 3: loose protectors.
Type 4: knee protectors that form part of other protection.

There are also three performance levels:

Level 0: offers no protection against penetration.
Level 1: knee protectors suitable for flat and non-flat floor surfaces and offering protection against penetration by objects < 1 cm.
Level 2: knee protectors suitable for flat and non-flat floor surfaces and offering protection against extreme conditions (e.g. scrap in mines).

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:
Protective clothing: general requirements. Specifies general health and ergonomic requirements as well as ageing, size designation, labelling and user instructions.

Protection against liquid chemicals

EN 13034: 2005 + A1: 2009
Protection against liquid chemicals

This standard is required for type 6 protective clothing, that provides limited protection against small spatters or fumes of liquid chemicals and is intended for use in situations where the risks are assessed as low and a full liquid permeation barrier is not necessary. This type of clothing must cover the entire upper and lower body.

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:
Protective clothing: general requirements. Specifies general health and ergonomic requirements as well as ageing, size designation, labelling and user instructions.

Protection against electric arcs

IEC 61482 - 2: 2009
Protection against electric arcs

An electric arc or blast as a result of a disruption (e.g. a short circuit) in an electric installation generates a sudden release of intense heat and light causing serious burns or other injuries. This standard is subdivided in different classes.

Class 1: protection against electric arc 4KA
Class 2: protection against electric arc 7KA

The clothing is tested for an arc voltage up till around 400V and for a time of 500ms.

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:

Protection against electrostatic charges

EN 1149 - 5: 2008
Protection against electrostatic charges

Antistatic clothing is worn to prevent sparks from electrostatic charges which can cause fire or explosion.

The standard (EN 1149) consists of various sections that specify the requirements and test methods for measuring protection against static electricity or damage from discharge. Part 5 of the standard (EN 1149-5) describes the performance requirements for antistatic clothing.

Protection for welding and allied processes.

EN ISO 11611: 2007 / EN 11611: 2015
Protection for welding and allied processes.

This standard specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing, including head and foot safety gear, which is designed to protect the wearer’s body against spatter, short contact time with flame and radiant heat, and minimises the possibility of electrical shock (at accidental contact of +/- 100 V).

Flame spread is tested in the event of surface ignition (gives A1) and edge ignition (A2). A2 is divided into two categories, in which category 2 offers protection against more hazardous welding techniques.

A1: indicates the clothing meets the requirements for limiting flame spread in the event of surface ignition
A2: indicates the clothing meets the requirements for limiting flame spread in the edge ignition.Divided into two categories: 
- Category 1 is protection against less hazardous welding techniques and situations causing low levels of spatter and radiant heat.
- Category 2 is protection against more hazardous welding techniques and situations causing higher levels of spatter and radiant heat.

All garments under this standard also meet the standards EN 340: 2003 & EN ISO 13688: 2013:
