Protective clothing with electrostatic properties.
EN 1149-5 specifies material and design requirements for electrostatic dissipative clothing, including hoods and caps, that is worn as part of a totally earthed system for protection against incendiary discharges in areas where there is a risk of explosion (ATEX Environments).
EN 1149-5:2018 - PROTECTIVE CLOTHING - ELECTROSTATIC PROPERTIES - PART 5: MATERIAL PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
This standard does not encompass protections against hazards associated with mains voltages and oxygen-enriched workspaces. This European Standard is not applicable for protection against mains voltages.
The test methods used in EN 1149-5:
EN1149-1: 2006 measurement of surface resistivity (surface resistance)
EN1149-3: 2004 measurement of charge decay
EN1149-4: garment test method (standard currently under development)
