Important information about MASCOT’s products EN 13034 (Type 6) EN 14404 Protective clothing against liquid chemicals - Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protective performance against liquid chemicals. Personal protective equipment - Knee pads for working in a kneeling position. EN 342 Oeko-Tex standard 100 Protection clothing. Clothing for protection against the cold. This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for performance of clothing for protection against cold environment. It does not include specific requirements for head wear, footwear and gloves intended to prevent local cooling. Confidence in textiles. Tested for harmful substances. EN ISO 15797 GO/RT 3279 (RIS-3279-TOM) An Industrial Washing and finishing method for testing of workwear. The standard specifies test methods and equipment which can be used to determine whether materials are suitable for workwear for industrial washing. Independent testing institutes carry out tests for MASCOT according to criteria established by the ETSA (European Textiles Services Association). The GO/RT 3279 (RIS-3279-TOM) standard is based on the European standard ISO 20471:2013 (which supersedes the old version EN 471:2003). It requires garments to meet at least class 2 (the mid-point of a 3-class scale) of ISO 20471 for the minimum area of high visibility materials used within a garment. Whereas the European standard permits several different colours of high visibility materials, the railway standard specifies an orange colour. GO/RT3279 also defines the requirements for a high visibility minivest. GO/RT 3279 is replaced by RIS-3279-TOM, which reproduces the content of GO/RT 3279 Issue 8 in its entirety. UV Standard 801 The standard for protection against UV rays. The standard specifies how well the workwear provides user protection from the sun’s UV rays. A protection factor of 80 is the highest a material can achieve in the test. 617
