All back protectors certified according to EN 1621-2:2014
In spring 2014 we modified all our back protectors according to the new Standard EN 1621-2:2014 – and they passed the certification with success.
From July 2014 on the new Standard for back protectors EN 1621-2:2014 is valid. The most important changes are: higher test temperature (23 instead of 20 degree) and test after hydolythic aeging. The limits for the proctection levels will stay as before. At Level 1 the mean value must remain below 18 kN and no single strike above 24 kN. At Level 2 the mean value must remain below 9 kN and no single strike above 12 kN. In addition optional tests at T+ (plus 40 degree) and T- (minus 10 degree) may be carried out.
