– Impact*: force transmitted to the headform must not exceed 5 kN at the fall of an object of 5 kg from a 1m height. The impact energy of the helmet at the end of the test is 49 J.
– Penetration*: the tip of the mass used in the test (3 kg over 1m) must not come into contact with the skull.
– Flammability: the helmet should not burn with flame emission more than 5 seconds after removal of the flame.
* The impact and penetration tests are performed at room temperature, at 50°C and at -10°C
In extreme temperatures: impact and penetration tests are conducted at room temperature at 150°C, at -20°C or -30°C.
Protects against lateral compression.
The maximum deformation of the helmet should be ≤ 40 mm.
Protects against accidental short-term contact with a live electrical conductor up to 440 VAC.
Resistance to molten metal splashes
EN50365:2002 Electrically insulating helmets for use on low voltage installations
|CLASS||0||Electrically insulating helmets – Class 0|
Electrically insulating helmets for use near energized equipment not exceeding 1000 VAC or 1500 VDC (appliance class 0).
Used simultaneously with other electrically insulating protective equipment, these helmets prevent dangerous currents passing through to the person’s head.
These optional electrical insulation tests are more stringent than the EN397 and they complement them.
(2 triangle marking, Class 0).
