Clothing giving protection against heat and flames

Protective clothing that is intended to provide protection against brief contact with flames and at least one type of heat. The heat can be convective, radiant or caused by large splashes of molten metal - or can occur in a combination of these effects. The requirements on limited flame spread must always be met.
