The new UNI EN ISO 20471 standard has recently replaced the previous UNI EN 471. The new standard defines the certification classes and the design requirement of the garments. Siggi Hightech and high-visibilty clothing is certified according to UNI EN ISO 20471.
UNI EN ISO 20471:2013
High-visibility clothing - Test methods and requirements
EN ISO 20471 is the official english language version of the european standard EN ISO 20471 (March 2013 edition) and takes account of the changes introduced on 29th March 2013. This International Standard specifies requirements for high visibility clothing which is capable of visually signalling the user’s presence.
UNI EN 14058:2004
Protective clothing - Garments for protection against cool environments.
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for the performance of single garments for protection against cooling of the body in cool environment. It does not include specific requirements for headwear or footwear or gloves to prevent local cooling.
UNI EN 343:2008
Protective clothing - Protection against rain
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods applicable to material and seams of protective clothing against the influence of precipitation (e.g. rain, snowflakes) fog and ground humidity. Two values are indicated in the description of the EN 343 standard. The first figure indicates waterproof rating and the second indicates the material’s ability to conduct moisture and sweat away from the body.
UNI EN ISO 11612 :2009
Protective clothing - Clothing to protect against heat and flame
The EN ISO 11612 certified clothing, protect the users against heat and flame. The EN ISO 11612 identifies clothing made from flexible materials, which are designed to protect the wearer's body.
With the exception of EN ISO 11612 certified hoods, products that offer protection of the wearer’s head, hands and similar are not included in this standard.
For these exposed areas, the use of additional protections is strongly recommended. EN ISO 11612 clothing is indicated for industrial workers and electricians. This standard replaces the previous one EN531.
UNI EN ISO 11611 :2008
Protective clothing for use in welding and allied processes
The EN ISO 11611 certified safety clothing protect the wearer from sparks, brief contact with fire and minimise the risk of electric shock from brief, accidental contact with electrical conductors. The workwear must cover the whole body in order to obtain optimal protection. This is achieved by using both jacket and corresponding trousers. When using welding techniques that produce a lot of sparks, is recommended the use of additional protection for head, hands and the front of the clothes. To avoid sparks burnt onto workwear, the safety apparel certified in accordance with EN ISO 11611 only has a minimum amount of pockets and other features so sparks don’t get stuck.
UNI EN 1149 -5 :2008
Protective clothing - Electrostatic properties - Part 5: Material performance and design requirements
This standard describes the requirements for electrostatic properties for safety apparel used in areas where there is a hazard of sudden electrostatic discharge. The test method for EN 1149-5:2008 specifies the requirements for materials and design of safety clothing with electrostatic properties, in order to protect the wearer as best possible. It is important that you are properly earthed when using safety apparel with electrostatic properties. This is ensured by using appropriate antistatic approved safety footwear.
UNI EN 13034 :2009
Protective clothing against liquid chemicals - Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing
EN 13034/EN 13034+A1 Standard offers limited protection against small quantities and splashes of liquid chemicals (Type 6 and Type PB  equipment). Safety apparel with this certification is suitable for use in areas where there is a risk of exposure to small splashes of chemicals, but where full body protection is not required. EN 13034 certified safety clothing is suitable for situations when you are in areas where you risk being exposed to small quantities of chemicals. Quickly remove the safety apparel if it’s exposed to chemicals. Safety apparel with EN 13034 certification is designed so that the seams prevents liquid and chemicals from penetrating the clothing. To achieve best protection, it is recommended the use of safety clothing that covers the entire body, either a full-body suit or two parts that each are certified in accordance with EN 13034.
UNI EN 1149 :2008
Protective clothing – material performance and design requirements
This standard describes the requirements for electrostatic properties for safety apparel used in areas where there is a hazard of sudden electrostatic discharge. The test method for EN 1149-5:2008 specifies the requirements for materials and design of safety clothing with electrostatic properties, in order to protect the wearer as best possible. When using safety apparel with electrostatic properties, it’s important to be properly earthed. This is ensured by using appropriate antistatic approved safety footwear.
UNI EN 510 :1994
Specification for protective clothing for use where there is a risk of entanglement with moving parts
This standard specifies the properties of protective clothing that minimize the risk of its entanglement or drawing-in by moving parts when the wearer is working at or near hazardous moving machines or devices. This standard does not include protective clothing against injuries by special moving machine parts for which specific standards exist, e.g. protective clothing for users of chainsaws.
