Protective Clothing Tests

Protective Clothing Tests

Protective clothing tests are to ensure that different types of protective clothing are safe and protect the user as expected. Protective clothing is clothing that aims to protect those who wear them from injury or other health-related risks. Protective clothing tests are a legal requirement in many countries.

Protective Clothing Tests

Protective clothing tests are very diverse depending on the intended use of the clothes and potential risks for the user. Some special test types include:

  • Biological resistance (penetration test, antimicrobial and antibacterial tests)
  • Chemical resistance (chemical penetration and penetration tests)
  • Protective group (chemical, vapor or liquid splash resistance tests of all body protection systems)
  • Impact protection (sports helmets and professional hats and body protection equipment tests)
  • Protective hands and shoes (tests of gloves and shoes used in hazardous working environments)
  • Anti-fall equipment (straps and body cable positioning tests)

Textiles used for personal protective clothing and equipment, such as high visibility warning clothing, protective clothing for firefighters, heat protection clothing, weather and cold protective clothing and protective gloves, must overcome many difficulties before they are allowed to be used.

This includes welding safety clothing, UV protective clothing, cut-resistant clothing, knee protection or clothing that protects from electrostatic charge and the thermal risks of the electric arc.

When conducting these tests, it is important to know the legal regulatory requirements and necessary test parameters for protective clothing and to evaluate them to ensure optimum product performance.

Neutral and independent tests are carried out by authorized institutions to determine whether these products meet the regulatory requirements while also following the quality standards.
