Protection against cold - Garments for protection in cool environments
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for the performance of single garments for protection against cooling of the body in cool environment. It does not include specific requirements for headwear or footwear or gloves to prevent local cooling.
EN 14058 specifies 4 parameters with specific performance requirements.
A: Thermal resistance (class 1-3), measured on all textile layers together
B: Air permeability (Class 1 -3 ), measured on all textile layers together
C: Water vapour permeability (mandatory for class 4, optional for classes 1 to 3). Replaced with X if the garment has not been tested.
D: Water penetration resistance (optional). Replaced with X if the garment has not been tested.
