Overview of EN 14116

The Standard Defined...

EN ISO 14116:2015 specifies the performance requirements for the limited flame spread properties of all materials, all material assemblies, and protective clothing in order to reduce the possibility of the clothing burning when in occasional and brief contact with small flames and thereby constituting a hazard.

Additional requirements for clothing are also specified, including design requirements, mechanical requirements, marking, and information supplied by the manufacturer.

It offers protection against flame only, not other heat hazards...

Clothing in this category should not be worn to protect against convective heat, radiant heat, molten metal or similar higher risk hazards.

When protection against heat hazards is necessary, in addition to protection against flame, this International Standard is not appropriate. International Standards such as ISO 11612 are to be used instead.

You can read our full article here which also lists the protection offered by this standard.
