What is Multinorm Clothing?

banner

Multinorm clothing is a range of personal protective equipment (PPE) that offers multiple levels of protection from weather and workplace hazards. These products are typically used by workers in industrial operations such as offshore oil rigs, refineries and other situations where the wearer could come into contact with hazards and adverse weather conditions.

Unlike traditional singular EN Spec workwear, Multi-norm items have to pass a test for each EN Specification assigned, all within one garment, which is why Multinorm clothing tends to be much more expensive than traditional PPE. An example of such products can be seen below:
