EN standards for Arc Flash protection

Purchasing products which conform to EN Standards guarantees your team is protected.

Depending on which sector you operate in, the EN Standards that matter to your business may differ slightly if your industry requires Arc Flash clothing. However, it’s vital that you equip your team with protective clothing that conforms to IEC 61482. This is the international standard applicable to Arc Flash and flash fire hazard protection. All ProGARM Arc Flash garments are rigorously tested to the Open Arc and Box Arc methods, providing protection across our range.

EN ISO 11612 certified garments provide protection against heat and flame. This protects against hazards including radiant heat, convective heat and splatters of molten metal, although it is not a substitute for clothing made to withstand high temperatures for longer periods of time.

The specifications for each standard that ProGARM Arc Flash garments conform to are provided both on our website and in our brochure. You can be sure that you’re equipping your team with clothing designed to protect them in the field, whichever sector you operate in.
