  • Environmental Conditioning
    Helmets subjected to impact attenuation and penetration tests, and visors subjected for impact and pellet protection tests, are conditioned immediately prior to applicable testing to simulate use in a wide range of climatic conditions (-20C to +50C).
  • 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.
  • Hearing Attenuation
    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.
  • Vision Test (Prismatic, Spherical, and Astigmatic Aberration)
    Testing to assure that vison is not distorted by prismatic, spherical, and/or astigmatic aberration effects introduced by the visor.
  • Visor Mist Test
    Assesses the anti-mist properties of the visor. This test is only applicable to visors that are offered with anti-mist properties.
  • Visor Impact Test
    Performed to ensure that a known impact will not cause a deformation of the visor which may contact the wearer’s face.
