Introduction This standard specifies the minimum safety requirements and test methods for a firehood worn by a firefighter following a user risk assessment. When worn with protective clothing, breathing apparatus and helmet, the design features and performance requirements of the firehood are intended to provide protection to the exposed areas of the head and neck against heat and flame. Firehoods can be used in different end uses, both over and underneath the facemask and with different shapes of helmets. It is the user’s responsibility to choose the right firehood appropriate to the garment, helmet, and facemask recommended by the hood manufacturer. SIST EN 13911:2017

3.8 seam permanent fastening between two or more pieces of material 3.9 pre-treatment standard way of preparing the samples before testing Note 1 to entry: This might include e.g. a number of cleaning cycles, submitting the sample to heat, mechanical action or any other relevant exposure and is finished by conditioning. 3.10 yoke area of the firehood interfacing with the coat 3.11 facial opening opening in the front of the firehood interfacing with the breathing apparatus facemask 3.12 elasticity property of a material by which it tends to recover its original size and shape immediately after the removal of the force causing deformation 3.13 material substances excluding hardware and labels, of which an item of clothing is made 4 Design and Materials 4.1 Introduction Materials used in the construction of the firehood which are likely to come into contact with the skin of the wearer shall comply with 4.2 of EN ISO 13688:2013. The design requirements specified shall be verified by visual inspection during the procedures in Annex B, unless otherwise specified in 4.2. The manufacturer shall provide information on the specific items for those that compatibility is claimed. 4.2 General The firehood shall be close fitting and able to be worn without discomfort or significant restriction to head movement. The firehood shall fit around or under the breathing apparatus facemask for which compatibility is claimed without reducing the field of view interfering with the breathing function of the mask and give no discomfort to the wearer. Overstretching will reduce the heat protective performance of the firehood and should be avoided by design. NOTE Excess material in the construction of the firehood may hamper the wearer and compromise the wearing of other personal protective equipment. 4.3 Facial opening The firehood shall have a f
