Size guide

Large, small or in between? We think it goes without saying that your clothes should fit nicely and attractively. Do not forget that many of our trousers can be lengthened by 5 cm; if normally you have C150 just buy a C50 and take them down by simply unpicking. Check our size guide to ensure that you buy the right size!

EN standards and classification

EN 342

Protection against cold Requirements on insulation capacity and air permeability. Cold environments are characterised by the combination of moisture and wind with temperatures below -5 °C.


EN 343

Basic requirements for rainwear puts demands on water vapour resistance, breathing properties, tear strength and abrasion resistance. The upper number indicates the garment’s waterproof class. (max 3). The lower number indicates the garment’s water vapour resistance (max 3).


EN 471

Protective garments with enhanced visibility. High visibility garments have fluorescent surfaces and reflectors that conform to certification requirements on the design according to three different classes.

Class 1

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.14 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.10 m≤, for use where the lowest level of visibility is demanded.

Class 2

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.50 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.13 m≤, for use where the visibility requirement is not as high as class 3.

Class 3

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.80 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.20 m≤, where the highest level of visibility is demanded.


EN ISO 20471

Protective garments with enhanced visibility. High visibility garments have fluorescent surfaces and reflectors that conform to certification requirements on the design according to three different classes, and have been tested before and after washing. 5 washes is the minimum and if the garment has been tested and approved for a higher number of washes this should be stated on the care label.

Class 1

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.14 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.10 m≤, for use where the lowest level of visibility is demanded.

Class 2

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.50 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.13 m≤, for use where the visibility requirement is not as high as class 3.

Class 3

Protective garments fitted with fluorescent fabric, with an area of at least 0.80 m≤ and reflectors with an area of 0.20 m≤, where the highest level of visibility is demanded. Protective garments must cover the torso and at least have sleeves or full-length trousers. The reflectors must wrap around the torso and arm or leg. Minimum reflector width must be 50 mm.


EN 1150

Visibility enhancing protective clothing. Garments with good visibility for non-professional use. The requirements are not as stringent as EN 471. There are no classes in EN 1150.


EN ISO 11611

Protective clothing for use in welding and similar work (previously EN 470). Suitable for welders and industrial workers.


EN ISO 11612

Clothing to protect against heat and flame (formerly EN 531). Certified and approved garments that protect the user in the event of contact with heat or flames. Suitable for industrial workers, and electricians.


EN 1149

Protective clothing with electrostatic protection and reduced risk of sparking. The garment should be used as part of a total earthed system to avoid discharges. Appropriate where there is risk of explosion e.g. refineries.


EN ISO 14116

Protective clothing with fire retardant properties (formerly EN 533). Certified and approved garments suitable for industrial workers.


EN ISO 61482

Protective clothing against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. Appropriate where there is risk of electric arcs occurring.


EN 381

Protective clothing when using hand-held chainsaws. Classified by the speed of chainsaw chain, it protects against. The garment is also classified in different designs. Designs A and B are meant to be used in normal logging work by professional forestry workers, who are well trained and knowledgeable within the field. Design C covers the entire leg and is for use by people who do not normally work with chainsaws or in extraordinary situations, for example, when working in trees.


EN 14404

EN standard for kneepads This standard establishes minimum requirements for dimensions and mechanical requirements such as penetration resistance and distribution of force.


EN 1073-2

Protective clothing against radioactive particulate pollutants.


EN 14126

Protective clothing against infective agents.


DIN 32781

Protective clothing against pesticides.


EN 943

Type 1

Gas-tight protective suits. Highest level of protection in which all parts of the suit must be completely gas-tight and provide the highest protection against penetration by chemical and biological agents as well as against liquid and gaseous industrial chemicals, as well as being highly resistant to mechanical stresses. Breathing air must provide overpressure in the whole of the suit.
Type 1a: Air breathing apparatus worn inside the protective suit
Type 1b: Air breathing apparatus worn outside the protective suit
Type 1c: Breathable air from outside, e.g. airlines

Type 2

Non-gas-tight protective suits. Level of protection where the requirement of resistance to penetration by chemicals and industrial chemicals relates to lower concentrations than for Type 1. The suit must protect against penetration by liquids that spurt vigorously with low pressure from different angles. The suit must be liquid-tight, but does not need to be gas-tight. Breathing air must provide overpressure in the whole of the suit.


EN 14605

Type 3

Liquid-tight protective suits - Suits that can protect against strong and directed jets of liquid chemicals, for example, those that can squirt out of a broken pipe under pressure. This requires a barrier fabric (chemical tests according permeability test EN 369) and sealed seams.

Type 4

Splash-proof protective suits - Protective suits that can protect against saturation of liquid chemicals, where the volume of fluid builds up on the suit, forming pools and rivulets. This requires a barrier fabric (chemical tests according permeability test EN 369) and sealed seams.


EN 13982 - 1(2)

Type 5

Dry particle suits. Suits that protect against hazardous dust and dry particles.


EN 13034

Type 6

Protective suits against limited splashing. Protective suits against limited splashing of liquid chemicals in liquid form, with no directional jet and where there is no risk that liquid collects on the suit, but where there may be fine mist of droplets in the air.
