BS EN ISO 11611:2007 specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing including hoods, aprons, sleeves and gaiters that are designed to protect the wearer's body including head (hoods) and feet (gaiters) and that are to be worn during welding and allied processes with comparable risks.

This type of protective clothing is intended to protect the wearer against spatter (small splashes of molten metal), short contact time with flame, radiant heat from the arc, and minimizes the possibility of electrical shock by short-term, accidental contact with live electrical conductors at voltages up to approximately 100 V d.c. in normal conditions of welding.

BS EN ISO 11611 specifies two classes with specific performance requirements :

  • Class 1 is protection against less hazardous welding techniques and situations, causing lower levels of spatter and radiant heat
  • Class 2 is protection against more hazardous welding techniques and situations, causing higher levels of spatter and radiant heat.

For the protection of the wearer’s head and feet, BS EN ISO 11611 is only applicable to hoods and gaiters. BS EN ISO 11611 does not cover requirements for hand protection.

For adequate overall protection against the risks to which welders are likely to be exposed, personal protective equipment (PPE) covered by other standards should additionally be worn to protect the head, face, hands and feet.
