Protective clothing – Ensembles and garments for protection against cold
A cold climate consists of a combination of moisture and temperatures of less than -5 °C. EN 342 specifies the value of the resulting effective thermal insulation for a wearer. The norm specifies the lowest temperature at which the body can maintain thermal neutral conditions during the workday while performing light and medium tasks. It also specifies the lowest temperature at which body cooling is limited to an acceptable level for one hour, while the wearer is performing light and medium tasks. Two-piece protective clothing should be used together to achieve the specified level of protection.The CE label in the garment provides information about the necessary garment combination.
