Product Certification

Stewart and Heaton Clothing were the first company to attain licenses to produce fire fighting garments independently certified to Australian/New Zealand Standards. These Standards are:-

  • AS/NZS 4967 : 2009 (Protective clothing for firefighters-Requirements and test methods for protective clothing used for structural firefighting).
  • AS/NZS 4824 : 2006 (Protective clothing for firefighters-Requirements and test methods for protective clothing used for wildland firefighting.

These Standards set minimum levels of performance for fire fighting garments. The product certification is provided by an independent third party that examines all aspects of the garments’ manufacture and the raw materials utilised in their manufacture to confirm that these levels of performance are met/exceeded. Hence the mark of product certification provides an assurance to purchasers that the garments they are purchasing fully conform to the requirements specified in the Standard. To maintain this assurance over time, the certification process also includes annual auditing of manufacturing processes, quality control systems, test reports, batch testing requirements and technical/specification document control.

Any unauthorised alteration, inclusive of badges, back panels, embroidery, logo’s administered to our Certified Garments may void the Warranty and/or Product Certification. Please check with your S&H customer service representative prior to your action.
