  • Coverage & Peripheral Vision
    Measurements are taken to ensure visor coverage of a defined area of the face and eliminate any obstructions to peripheral vision potentially caused by the helmet or visor mounting.

    Ensures that the helmet does not reduce the level of sound reaching the wearer, above defined limits.
  • Flammable Liquid Trap
    Inspects the helmet to affirm there are no liquid traps on the exterior of the helmet and that the helmet is self-extinguishes within 15 seconds of the test fluid being ignited.
  • Flame Testing
    Determines the flame retardant properties of the helmet.
  • Retention Stability Test
    Performed to ensure that the helmet does not roll forward over the wearer’s face as a result of an applied force.
  • Penetration Test
    Ensures protection from a penetrating attack to the helmet body.
  • Impact Testing (Attenuation)
    Assesses resistance capability of impact caused by hand thrown or hand wielded blunt weapons.
