Abstract:

The subject of this work are requirements and test methods for clothing protecting from factors such as thermal radiation, flame, chemicals and resistance to leaking. In this publication, test methods and requirements for protective clothing for firefighting in Europe (in particular in Poland), USA and Russia are compared, presented in standards: NFPA 1971, НПБ 162-02, EN 469. Additional requirements in Poland were also taken into account, presented in Ordinance of the Ministry of the Interior (published Dz. U. of 2010 No. 85, item. 553). Based on the requirements analysis, it was found that they mostly focus on the requirements for protection against thermal factors (resistance to thermal radiation, flame, contact heat). Test methods for checking compliance with those requirements and test parameters established by standards are briefly discussed . Directions of development for test methods of firefighter protective clothing are also discussed. Current trends in the development of research and measuring equipment are presented.
