DESCRIPTION

BS EN 1486:2007


This standard BS EN 1486:2007 Protective clothing for fire-fighters. Test methods and requirements for reflective clothing for specialized fire-fighting is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.340.10 Protective clothing
  • 13.220.10 Fire-fighting
This European Standard considers requirements for the protection of the whole body including head, hands and feet. Clothing for head and feet according to this European Standard, however, may only provide sufficient protection when worn together with such basic PPE specified in the relevant standards as noted in paragraphs 4.2 and 4.4 of this European Standard. This European Standard specifies test methods and minimum performance requirements for reflective protective clothing used in specialised fire-fighting. This clothing provides protection against flame lick and intense radiant heat and is worn for short periods only, to enable the fire-fighter to enter specific high-risk fire-fighting and fire rescue situations which also require the use of breathing apparatus. This European Standard only covers protective clothing that relies upon the ability of the outer material to reflect intense radiant heat. This type of reflective clothing may also be used for industrial applications involving high levels of radiant heat. The reflective clothing specified in this European Standard is not covered in EN 469.
