The Importance of Heat and Fire Protective Clothing

Heat and fire protective clothing and garments worn by workers exposed to these hazards need to be lightweight and with a very high level of protection against radiant and contact heat.

When it comes to choosing the best protective clothing against the thermal risks arising from an electric arc, many doubts may arise. Here are some of the most common ones:

What hazards does heat and flame protective clothing protect against?

Heat and flame protective clothing protects against the risks arising from exposure to heat and flames (burns) in their various forms:

  • Fire
  • Contact heat
  • Convective heat
  • Radiant heat
  • Small splashes

It is recommended that, to complete the protection against heat and fire, appropriate PPE should be used to protect head, face, hands and feet. On specific occasions, respiratory protection equipment is also necessary.

How is the marking of heat and fire protective clothing carried out?

All garments complying with EN ISO 11612:2015 must be marked with the codes A1 and/or A2 and also with a further code corresponding to the letters B, C, D, E or F, followed by a number indicating their level of performance achieved within each requirement.

  • A1 and/or A2: Test method for flame spread.
  • B Convective heat (1-3).
  • C Radiant heat (1-4).
  • D Splashes of molten aluminum (1-3).
  • E Cast iron splashes (1-3).
  • F Contact heat (1-3).

In addition, codes that are associated with additional properties and have been tested should be included in the pictogram.

What types of heat and fire protection suits can we find?

If a heat and fire protection suit is needed, we can find two modalities:

  • A single garment which can be a gown or coverall.
  • A two-piece suit (jacket and pants). The length of the jacket must overlap the upper part of the pants.

All necessary accessories (hood, neck curtain, apron, sleeves, gaiters…) must also comply with current regulations.

Heat and fire protective clothing is designed to protect the worker’s body, with the exception of the hands. When it comes to protecting hands, feet and head, the accessories used are gaiters, hoods and boot covers.

What is heat and fire protective clothing not designed for?

Heat and fire protective clothing is not designed for firefighting, welding or associated work.
