Chemical protection

The performances of the EN ISO 13034: 2005 standard are divided between the different types as follows:

EN 943: 2002 TYPE 1

Protective clothing against gas-tight chemical

EN 943: 2022 TYPE 2

Protective clothing against non-gas-tight chemical

EN 14605: 2005 TYPE 3

Protective clothing against liquid chemicals

EN 14605: 2005 + A1: 2009 TYPE 4

Protective clothing against liquid chemicals

EN 13982- 1: 2004+A1: 2010 TYPE 5

Protective clothing against solid particles

EN 13034: 2005+A1: 2009 TYPE 6

Protective clothing against limited spraying chemicals

 

This standard makes it possible to assess the minimum level of performance of protective clothing designed for protection against a possible explosion of small quantities of spray or a limited volume (sprayed by accident) of less dangerous chemical products, for which a total permeability barrier is not required.

The performances of the EN ISO 13034: 2005 standard are divided between the different types as follows:

TYPE 6 :

Clothes standardized type 6 protect users, at least cover torso and limbs

TYPE PB 6 :

Clothes standardized type PB 6 protect only specific users’ body parts
