MASCOT’s workwear is certified according to high international standards. Here, you can learn more about the various certifications to make sure that you have the correct workwear for your working conditions.
EN ISO 20471 is an international standard that sets requirements for safety clothing for persons working in areas that require high visibility. The class designation (the number next to the symbol) describes how well the product can protect the wearer. The highest class that can be achieved is class 3. The EN ISO 20471 standard also sets requirements for the reflective material’s ability to reflect light. Clothing certified according to EN ISO 20471 is also tested after washing. Unless otherwise stated on the clothing label, the material has been tested after five washes. Some of MASCOT’s clothing is tested after far more washes. This is stated on the product. Clothing that is combined can be classified according to a higher protection class than an item of clothing used on its own. The possible higher class is indicated in the label of the clothing using a simple combination form.
The best way to protect yourself from the cold is to use workwear that is certified in accordance with EN 342:2017. In order to obtain maximum protection, your workwear should be kept dry and tight around openings, such as the wrists, for example. You will also need to wear gloves and a hat, etc, in order to avoid local cooling. Each individual product is classified in accordance with different values: thermal insulation value (Y), degree of air permeability (AP) and, if applicable, waterproofness (WP).
When there's a job that needs to be done whatever the weather, it's important to be properly dressed. EN 343 is an European standard for protective clothing. Look for EN 343 certification if you want to be guaranteed comfort even when it's windy and raining. You will find two values beside the symbol for EN 343. The first number indicates waterproofness. The second number describes the breathability of the overall product. Both values are divided into classes from 1-3, with 3 indicating the highest class in both cases.
This standard specifies the minimum requirements for protective clothing used when welding or performing similar processes with comparable risks. There are two classes, 1 and 2, with class 2 being the highest (= the best level of protection).
Clothing that protects against heat and flames. This standard describes coveralls made from a flexible fabric which are designed to protect the user's body (but not the hands) from heat and/or flames. With the exception of hats and gaiters, garments for the protection of the head, hands or feet are not covered.
This standard specifies the performance requirements for materials, material combinations and items of protective clothing with limited flame spread properties in order to reduce the likelihood of the clothing catching fire and thereby constituting a hazard.
Clothing that protects against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. IEC 61482-2 certification involves two test methods. The first test method (open electric arc) tests the fabric and garment in order to determine the ATPV/EBT value of the clothing. The second method (box test) determines the electric arc protection class of the fabric and the garment through the use of a forced and controlled electric arc. There are two different classes, with class 2 being the highest and offering the best protection.
Protective clothing with electrostatic properties. Here, you can read about protective clothing with electrostatic properties. The EN 1149-5 (testing method 1149-3) certification is for your safety.
EN 1149-3:2004 - electrical discharge.
This standard describes the breakdown of electrostatic charges from the surface of the clothing materials.
EN 1149-5:2008 - materials performance and design
This standard describes the requirements for materials and construction of electrostatic dissipative protective clothing, which is used as part of a basic system to prevent incendiary discharges.
This standard describes the performance requirements for chemical protective clothing that provides limited protection against liquid chemicals (type 6 and type PB  equipment). Chemical protective clothing with a limited performance ability is intended for use in the event of potential exposure to low volume splashes, fluid dispersion or spray with low pressure and volume.
An industrial washing and finishing method for testing of workwear. The standard specifies test methods and equipment which can be used to determine whether materials are suitable for workwear for industrial washing.
MASCOT’s safety footwear is certified according to the European standard EN ISO 20345, which guarantees a high protection of your feet. The footwear is further divided into the security classes S1P and S3. Learn more about the different standards and safety classes here.
EN ISO 20345 is a European standard for safety footwear that ensures that safety shoes, boots and sandals conform to the necessary requirements of working in areas where safety is a high priority. All safety footwear from MASCOT® FOOTWEAR is certified in accordance with EN ISO 20345.

Full safety: Water-repellent / waterproof shoes and boots with midsole and toe cap
Options: A very wide range, both with and without scuff caps, different closure systems, shoes and boots, waterproof or water repellent, in various materials. Some with Vibram® soles and heat resistant up to 300 ° C. Always with high walking comfort.
Especially worn by: Outdoor workers who need special sturdy footwear that is also suitable in keeping out the rain. Shoes and boots with scuff caps are mainly worn by people who frequently work on their knees.
Footwear with an ESD label avoid electrostatic charging and are able to conduct away controlled static electricity from the body. This will avoid damages to, for example, sensitive electronic components.
Excellent traction with ultra slip resistant soles. Approved by both SRA (tested with soap on ceramics) and SRB (tested with glycerol on steel), which automatically achieves the best standard for slip-resistant soles, SRC.
The DGUV Regel 112-191 refers to foot and knee protection. More concretely, it means that each orthopaedic shoe modification or usage of an insole must be confirmed by an independent testing institute to ensure that the safety shoe still conforms to the requirements of its safety class (e.g. S3 or S1P). Therefore, orthopaedic modifications on MASCOT shoes can only be performed by the company Mander-Malms Schuhtechnik GmbH.
