The EN ISO 11611 standard specifies the minimum requirements for protective clothing that is worn during occasional welding and other processes with similar risks. EN ISO 11611-certified protective clothing offers protection from brief contact with flames and short, accidental contact with electronic conductors.
For adequate protection, the user should wear the EN ISO 11611-certified jacket along with appropriate trousers. In addition, it is recommended to wear extra protective equipment to protect the front, head and hands of the user when the work carried out produces lots of sparks. Protective clothing certified to EN ISO 11611 as well as the MASCOT® MUTISAFE series does not have pockets or other such features as there is a risk of them catching sparks, which can then penetrate the garment and cause danger to the wearer.
EN ISO 11611-certified protective clothing from MASCOT is categorised in two classes, each indicating the level of protection. Class 1 safety clothing offers protection in situations where the risk of exposure to sparks and radiant heat is relatively small. Class 2 EN ISO 11611-certified safety clothing protects in more hazardous situations, where the risk of exposure to radiant heat is much greater.
Safety clothing certified to EN ISO 11611 is important for your safety, when you work in high-risk environments. For that reason, MASCOT recommends that you check your protective clothing regularly for tears or anything that can limit protection. If your protective clothing has been in contact with fire, it is recommended that you replace it. This is the best way to ensure your own safety.
