STANDARD EN 15090: FIREMAN SHOES
This document is not an official reproduction of the standard; refer to the standards issued by AFNOR www.afnor.fr
|I||Footwear made from leather and or other materials, excludingall rubber and all polymeric footwear|
|II||Footwear made entirely of rubber or polymer|
All models manufactured by ETCHE SECURITE are class II.
Types The types of shoes for firemen are:
- Type 1 Suitable for general-purpose rescue (example Type 1, HI1), fire suppression (example Type 1, HI2),firefighting suppression action involving a fire in vegetative fuels such as forest (example Type 1, HI3),crops, plantations, grass or farmland.
- Type 2 Suitable for fire rescue (example Type 2, HI2), fire suppression, and property conservation in buildings,enclosed structures (example Type 2, HI3), vehicles, vessels, or like properties that are involved in a fireor emergency situation.
- Type 3 Hazardous materials emergencies, involving the release or potential release of hazardous chemicals intothe environment that can cause loss of life, personnel injury, or damage to property and the environment.Suitable also for fire rescue, fire suppression, and property conservation in aircraft, buildings, enclosedstructures, vehicles, vessels, or like properties that are involved in a fire or emergency situation.
All models of boots for firemen manufactured by ETCHE SECURITE are type 3
Main general requirements for type 3 boots
Further to the tests carried out as per standard EN ISO 20345, the following tests are performed:
|Whole boot||Performance of sole||II||Insulation against heat||HI2|
|Protective toe-cap||II||impact resistance 200J1|
|Compression resistance 15kN1|
|Electrical properties||II||Insulating boots2||I|
|High electrical resistance outsoles||IS|
|Resistance to aggressive environments||Resistance to chemicals3||CH|
|Outsole||Resistance to fuel oil|
|Contact heat resistance (60 secs at 300°C)|
1Standard EN 12568 defines the requirements and test methods for toe-caps and midsoles.
2The boot complies with class 0 or 00 of standard EN 50321
3Standard EN 13832-3 defines the requirements and test methods for boots highly resistant to chemicals.
Standard EN 13287 defines the test methods for determining the slip resistance of footwear.
The coefficients measured are greater than:
|Type of shoe||Symbol||Additional requirements|
|Type 3||F3A||General requirements + anti-static properties|
|F3I||General requirements + electrical insulation|
|F3IS||General requirements + sole with high electrical resistance|
Symbols F1 and F2 are reserved for shoe types 1 and 2
