RR824 - Assessment of inward leakage tests for air fed suits

This report describes work carried out as part of an inter-laboratory round-robin exercise to investigate the practicality and usefulness of a simultaneous multi-point in-suit sampling protocol for the assessment of inward leakage into air fed suits proposed for the revision of the relevant European Standard. HSL had concerns that this revised protocol would not produce the optimum level of information on suit performance, and would limit the highest levels of protection that could be measured.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
