What is the best choice for me?
SPEcIALIST OR MULTI-RISK?
Due to complex working environments and changing fields of work, the demands on PPE are increasing. Multi-standard clothing has therefore been a popular trend for many years. However, whilst many speak of multi-standard, we prefer to use the term “multi-risk” - for a very good reason: as a large number of standards is not a feature of quality per se.
The key factor: the relevant area of application
It is far more effective to find out exactly what protective features are really necessary in order to decide when a specialist item of clothing is required and where the use of multi-risk products is most expedient. Because the same often applies here: What can do everything, doesn't master anything. Furthermore, specific protective functions also have a negative impact on wearing comfort, or they can be harmful for the environment, such as a fluorocarbon finish for chemical repellency.
It should also be borne in mind that in the case of multi-risk products, individual standards are monitored independently of each other and not in combination, which therefore does not result in a higher level of safety.
