Protection against rain

This standard makes it possible to assess the level of performance of protective clothing designed for protection against rain, moisture and snow.

The performances of the EN 343: 2003 +A1:2007 standard are divided between the following different types:
• Resistance to penetration of water (outer material, seams and insert) : class 1 to 3. The materials are tested before and after
    pre-treatment: dry cleaning, abrasion, repeated bending, impact of fuel and oil. The lowest class is selected for tagging
• Resistance to evaporation: class 1 to 3.
• Tensile strength of outer material
• Resistance to tearing of the outer material
• Resistance of the outer seam of the clothing
