EN ISO14116 Protection against Heat & Flame, Limited Flame Spread

This standard replaces the withdrawn EN533 standard. As a general rule, FireBear do not produce garments in accordance with this European Norm as in our view they are not Flame Resistant Fabrics as we understand them which is fabrics where no melting or hole formation takes place. However, they do have uses in some outerwear such as Hi-Viz winter jackets and waistcoats and these garments are generally worn over other protective garments that meet the requirements of the EN ISO11612 Heat & Flame Standards or other EN Norms. Clothing manufactured removal from the flame, the material will stop burning. Clothing in the category should not be worn to protect against convective heat, radiant heat, molten metal or similar higher risk hazards.

Stay protected against Electrical ARC by wearing the Fire Bear !

EN ISO14116 Protection against Heat & Flame, Limited Flame Spread

EN ISO 14116

The contents of this standard

For fabrics, this standard only has a flame spread test and the test results are given as Index values as detailed below. The number of wash cycles and the washing method used to achieve the stated index value are also given under the EN Norm pictogram. E.g. “25H” indicates 25 domestic wash cycles (this can also be indicated as “I” for industrial wash cycles or “C” for chemical cleaning such as Dry Cleaning). The “60” represents the laboratory washing temperature in degrees C. There are also requirements in this standard for the seam strength to be tested and for tests to ensure flame retardency of the garment's seams.



Different tests, codes

Index 1: No flaming to the top or side edge, no flaming debris and no afterglow shall spread from the carbonized area to the undamaged area. Hole formation is possible under this Index. These fabrics should not be worn next to the skin. An example of a fabric in the category would be an FR polyester which will meet the requirements but will always form a hole.

Index 2: No flaming to the top or side edge, no flaming debris and no afterglow shall spread from the carbonized area to the undamaged area. No hole formation possible with this Index. The requirements are the same as Index 3 but no maximum afterflame time is specified.

Index 3: Requirements are the same as Index 2, but the afterflame time of each individual specimen should not exceed 2 seconds.
