Lakeland ALM aluminised garments are designed for applications such as maintenance and repairs requiring work in proximity to high radiant and ambient heat.

Our ALM range includes:

ALM 300

ALM 500

ALM 700

These garments use fabrics with aluminised outer layers specially designed to reflect a high degree (up to 95% of infra-red) heat and to offer an efficient high temperature barrier whilst maintaining flexibility and wear-ability. The 500 and 700 series also feature a moisture / steam barrier lining for applications where exposure to hot liquids, steam or hot vapour is a possibility.

The 300, 500 and 700 series are available with outer layers of aluminised glass.

These garments are designed for use in areas of high radiant and ambient heat but are not designed to be used for fire entry.

Garment Styles

All three fabrics are available as full suits with visors, with or without SCBA accommodation and in a range of individual components including hood, coat and pants etc. Aluminised gloves and boots are also available for complete protection.

CE Certification

Series 300 and 500 are certified to EN 11612 (Flame and Heat Protection) and EN 11611 (Welding and Allied Processes).  The heat protection leavels achieved for Convective Heat (EN 9151) , Radiant Heat (EN 6942) and Contact Heat (ISO 12127) are shown in the table below:

Heat Performance Values

Tests referenced in the EN 11612 standard for flame and heat protection apply different types of thermal energy to one side of the fabric. A heat sensor on the other side measures the time in seconds to reach a pre-determined increase in:

 


Convective Heat


Radiant Heat


Contact Heat

 

Heat energy transferred through
convective movement of a fluid or
gas (or air).

 

 Heat energy radiated directly
from a heat source.

 

Heat energy transferred through
direct contact with a hot surface.

 

Test: No: ISO 9151


Test: No: ISO 6942

 

Test: No: ISO 6942

 

Method: Applies a direct flame
underneath the fabric

 

 Method: Exposes fabric to an
electric heat source (I.e. an
electric fire)

 

Method: Heated cylinder at 250°C is placed on the fabric with
heat sensor underneath.

 

Criteria: Time in seconds to an
increase in temperature of 24°C

 

Criteria: Time in seconds to an
increase in temperature of 24°C

 

Criteria: Time in seconds to an
increase in temperature of 10°C
