Title (German)

Schutzkleidung für Schweißen und verwandte Verfahren (ISO 11611:2015); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 11611:2015


This International Standard specifies the performance requirements for the limited flame spread properties of materials, material assemblies, and protective clothing in order to reduce the possibility of the clothing burning and thereby constituting a hazard. Additional requirements for clothing are also specified. Protective clothing according to this standard is intended to protect workers against accidental and brief contact with small pilot flames in cases where there is no significant heat hazard and no other heat source is present. When protection against heat hazards is necessary, in addition to protection against flame, this International Standard is not appropriate. International Standards such as ISO 11612 are to be used instead. A classification system is given for materials, material assemblies, and garments which are tested according to ISO 15025:2000, Procedure A. Test institutes, certification bodies and manufacturers are potential users of this standard. This standard has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 162 "Protective clothing including hand and arm protection and lifejackets", the secretariat of which is held by DIN, in collaboration with Technical Committee ISO/TC 94 "Personal safety - Protective clothing and equipment". The responsible German standardization committee is Working Committee NA 075-05-02 AA "Schutzkleidung gegen Hitze und Feuer" ("Protective clothing against heat and fire") at DIN Standards Committee Personal Protective Equipment (NPS). This standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association to provide a means of conforming to Essential Requirements of the New Approach Directive 89/686/EEC on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
