European Standards for flame and heat protective workwear

We take a special responsibility for people who need to be protected against safety risks arising at dangerous work places. Over decades we have jointly analysed accidents resulting from flame and heat impacts with safety experts. We have come to the conclusion that the current European Standards are much too weak and do not protect against hazard risks in an effective way. Therefore we have set up our own special testing procedure, the ADITI INTERNATIONAL standard, to meet the requirements at heavy-duty work places - far beyond the European Standards.
