Fire and flame for your safety.

The market: hotly contested. The demands: high. Textiles that are used for personal protective equipment (PPE) must overcome so many hurdles before they are allowed to be used for protective gloves, protective clothing for the fire brigade, heat protection clothing, high-visibility warning clothing, weather and cold protective clothing, welding safety clothing, UV protective clothing, cut-resistant clothing, knee protection or clothing with protection from electrostatic charge and from the thermal risks of an electric arc.

Here it is helpful to have a strong partner on side who is familiar with the statutory requirements of PPE and the required test parameters and who is committed to optimum product performance and high wear comfort - someone like us.

Hohenstein conducts tests in a neutral and competent manner in order to determine whether your products satisfy both internal quality standards and the requirements of regulation (EU) 2016/425 so that they can be sold as PPE. We also offer various services for all types of workwear which helps you to keep a cool head.
