Impact test

The magnitude of the force transmitted from the outside to the inner surface through the protector, as well as the impact strength, is evaluated to assess the strength of the protective case to see if a fall will cause the shell to crack or crack on impact. Depending on the quality of the intended wearer, a range of impact energies are used.

Abrasion test

The test equipment is based on test equipment for motorcycle clothing and places the sample in contact with a mobile abrasive belt with particle size OP60.


The comfort and fit of the protector was also evaluated, including an ergonomic assessment to ensure that the end user was not subject to movement restrictions when wearing it, a restraint assessment to ensure that the protector remained in place during use, and an assessment that required checking the comfort of the protector. The product does not contain any rough, hard or sharp edges that may cause discomfort or injury to the wearer or others during normal use.


The standard also includes requirements for labels or markings and information that suppliers and manufacturers should provide to the wearers of their products to ensure that the products are used correctly and that users are fully aware of the level of protection provided.
