Footwear for firefighters

This European standard specifies minimum requirements and test methods for the performance of three types (see 4.3) of footwear for use by firefighters for fire suppression, general-purpose rescue, fire rescue and hazardous materials emergencies.
This European standard does not cover special personal protective equipment used in high-risk situations (for example, the conditions described in ISO 15538).

Schuhe für die Feuerwehr

Diese Europäische Norm legt Mindestanforderungen und Prüfverfahren für die Leistung von drei Typen von Schuhen für Feuerwehrleute (siehe 4.3) fest: Schuhe für Brandunterdrückung, für allgemeine Nutzung im Feuerwehrdienst, Schuhe für die Brandbekämpfung und für Gefahrstoffeinsätze.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt nicht für spezielle persönliche Schutzausrüstung für den Einsatz in Situationen mit sehr hohem Risiko (z. B. Bedingungen nach ISO 15538).

Chaussures pour pompiers

La présente Norme européenne fixe les exigences minimales et les méthodes d’essai permettant de déterminer les performances de trois types de chaussures destinées aux pompiers (voir 4.3), dans le cadre de l’extinction d’un feu, d’opérations générales de sauvetage, de la lutte contre les incendies et de situations d’urgence en présence de matériaux dangereux.
La présente Norme européenne ne traite pas des équipements de protection individuelle spéciaux utilisés dans les situations à niveau de risque élevé (par exemple, dans les conditions décrites dans l’ISO 15538).

Obutev za gasilce

Ta evropski standard določa najmanjše zahteve in preskusne metode za zmogljivosti treh vrst (glejte 4.3) obutve za gasilce za gašenje ognja, splošno reševanje, reševanje iz ognja in nujne primere, ki vključujejo nevarne materiale. Ta evropski standard ne zajema posebne osebne varovalne opreme, ki se uporablja v situacijah z visokim tveganjem (na primer pod pogoji, opisanimi v standardu ISO 15538). Glavne razlike med to izdajo in izdajo EN 15090:2006 so naslednje: a) Dodana je odpornost proti zdrsu (sklicevanje na EN ISO 20345, 5.3.5). b) Vrste obutve za gasilce (4.3) so bile spremenjene v skladu s tveganji. c) Zahteve in preskusne metode za toplotno sevanje (6.3.2 in 7.2) so bile spremenjene. d) Zahteva v zvezi z odpornostjo na kemikalije (6.5) je bila delno spremenjena. e) Zahteve za zunanje podplate z visoko električno odpornostjo (6.6.4 v stari različici) in ustrezni znaki iz tabele 9 so bili odstranjeni. f) Dodatek B (normativen) je bil prestrukturiran. Merila za oceno stanja obutve so našteta ločeno: »Izolacija pred toploto«, »Toplotno sevanje« in »Odpornost proti plamenu«. g) Dodatek D »Preskušanje vezalk« je bil izbrisan.

EN 15090:2012 (E) 5 Introduction The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum performance requirements and test methods for footwear for firefighters which is intended for use for fire fighting and associated activities. A risk assessment should be used to determine whether the footwear covered by this standard is suitable for the intended use for the expected exposure. Firefighters should be trained in the use, care and maintenance of the footwear covered by this standard, including an understanding of its limitations. SIST EN 15090:2012

EN 15090:2012 (E) 6 1 Scope This European standard specifies minimum requirements and test methods for the performance of three types (see 4.3) of footwear for use by firefighters for fire suppression, general-purpose rescue, fire rescue and hazardous materials emergencies. This European standard does not cover special personal protective equipment used in high-risk situations (for example, the conditions described in ISO 15538). 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

4.2 Design Footwear shall conform to one of designs B to E of Figure 3 of EN ISO 20345:2011.

4.3 Type The types of footwear for firefighters shall be as follows:  Type 1: Outdoor interventions, fire and wildland firefighting; no protection against penetration, no toe protection, no protection against chemical hazards;  Type 2: All fire suppression and rescue interventions where protection against penetration, and toe protection are needed, no protection against chemical hazards;  Type 3: All fire suppression and rescue interventions where protection against penetration and toe protection are needed, including protection against chemical hazards. 5 Sampling and conditioning The minimum number of samples shall be that specified in Clause 6 of EN ISO 20344:2011, together with the minimum number of test pieces taken from each sample, as given in Table 2. Wherever possible, test pieces shall be taken from the whole footwear unless otherwise stated in this standard and in EN ISO 20344. If it is not possible to obtain a large enough test piece from the footwear, then a sample of the material from which the component has been manufactured may be used instead and this shall be noted in the test report. Where samples are required from each of three sizes, these shall comprise the largest, smallest and a middle size of the footwear under test. All test pieces shall be conditioned in a standard atmosphere of (23 + 2) °C and (50 + 5) % relative humidity for a minimum of 48 h before testing, unless otherwise stated in the test method. The maximum time which shall elapse between removal from the conditioning atmosphere and the start of testing shall be not greater than 10 min, unless otherwise stated in the test method. Each test piece shall individually satisfy the specific requirement, unless otherwise stated in the test method. NOTE The uncertainty of measurement for each test method described in the present standard may be assessed. One of the two following approaches should be used:
