Product description

Proximity Suit for specialised firefighting acc. to EN 1486 / SOLAS

Both standards EN 1486 and ISO 15538 avoid to use definitions such as »approach«,
»proximity« or even »entry« suit. Annex B of ISO 15538 even contains a warning for flame
engulfment. This aluminised full protection clothing is intended to protect against intense
radiant heat at e.g. plane or bulk fires, and can be used as »proximity suit« that can also
protect against flame lick.
Before EN 1486 has been established, the here described lightweight model with only 2
linings (lining code 79) has been tested and licensed according to SOLAS for firefighting
on board.
You can see below the test conditions of «SBG» for SOLAS certification, oriented to
practical conditions which might be more informative for some users than tests in
laboratories according to the standards.
