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:-
Protective Clothing for Firefighters – Requirements and Test Methods for Protective Clothing used for Structural Firefighting
Protective Clothing for Firefighters – Laboratory Test Methods and Performance Requirements for Wildland Firefighting Clothing (ISO 15384:2018 MOD)
High visibility safety garments Garments for Fire Service personnel
Requirements for the visual performance for garments independently certified as compliant and used by fire service personnel through the addition of high visibility trim in specified pattern configurations.
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.
