Garment Audit for End Users

Has your PPE seen better days? If you’re concerned about the ability of your garment to continue to perform with age and use, our garment auditing option is a solution to evaluate field-use garments. Testing is destructive, but flammability concerns may be tested using the small-scale vertical flame procedure. Our technical staff can also perform a review of care and maintenance procedures, test reports provided by manufacturers, and compliance information as described by NFPA 70E-2018.

The garment auditing service includes:

  • Destructive testing to ASTM D6413 compared to requirements of ASTM F1506
  • Optional arc flash garment evaluations using ASTM F2621
  • If provided, a review of care and maintenance procedures as well as testing reports and compliance statements issued by the manufacturer
