How to choose your protective equipment?
Each job involves different requirements. To help you understand and choose your equipment, MABI reminds you of the different classifications.
Classification for disposable coveralls
- Category 01 MINOR RISKS
Low risk without danger for the user.
- Category 02 INTERMEDIATE RISKS
- Category 03 MAJOR HAZARDS Protection from serious and irreversible health hazards, or life-threatening hazards.
Internal classification according to different types:
TYPE 6: Limited protection against splashing and reduced chemical spraying.
TYPE 5: Tight protection against dry chemical particles suspended in the air.
TYPE 4: Protection against spraying of chemical agents.
TYPE 3: Waterproof protection, with seams sealed to chemical liquids.
Filter Classification for Respiratory Protection Masks
A Against organic gases and vapors (boiling point> 65°)
B Against inorganic gases and vapors (except CO)
E Against acid gases, sulfurous anhydrous
K Ammonia and amino organic compounds
P Against particles, dust and aerosols
AN OPEN FILTER MUST NOT BE USED BEYOND 6 MONTHS
Its lifespan varies depending on the exposure time, temperature, humidity, work done, pollutants and their concentrations. It must imperatively be changed as soon as there is an odor or taste inside the mask.
Classification for disposable half masks
RESPIRATORY PROTECTIONS AGAINST HARMFUL ACTION OF DUSTS, SOLID AND / OR LIQUID AEROSOLS
- FFP1 WITHOUT SPECIFIC TOXICITY Food and agricultural industry, quarries, cement factories, wood industry and more particularly softwood dust, calcium carbonate, graphite, plaster, chalk, cement, marble, zinc oxide and also against pollen and plants, cellulose, sulfur, cotton and ferrous metal filings.

Classification of protective gloves
AGAINST PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL AGGRESSION
The 4 digits below the pictogram give the level of performance (abrasion, blade cut, tear and puncture resistances).
AGAINST CHEMICALS AND / OR MICROORGANISMS
The 3 letters below the pictogram give the 3 chemicals (from a predefined list of 12 according to EN 374-1) for which the tightness and resistance are reached at a minimum level of performance of 2.
Solvent gloves (green): high performance chemical protection
Latex gloves (white): Latex allows precise gestures and great dexterity thanks to the flexibility and thinness of the material
Nitrile gloves (blue): Protection against chemicals and bacteria.
MABI Handling gloves (orange): recommended for fine handling in dry or slightly greasy and messy environments. Also available in brushed hair for an ideal protection during winter work
Carpenter’s gloves (black): Reinforced soft gloves, for building work
PVC gloves (red): For work with presence of oils, greases or petroleum products.
