Flame Resistant Outstanding Results
ISO 13506: 2008 Manikin Test ISO 13506
The Manikin test or Burn Injury Prediction test is a very accurate representation of what happens in real life flash fire situations. Portwest has done extensive optional manikin testing on the Araflame, Bizweld and Bizflame range of garments. The benefit of the Manikin test is that it allows users to accurately predict the real life performance of a garment and to be totally reassured that it is the best choice for their working environment.
Understanding the results:
A body map is produced which uses colour coding to indicate predicted body burn or injury. The body map will show no burns, pain, first, second or third degree burns and where these would have occurred. The calculation does not include the head or hands. There is no “Pass” or “Fail” criteria in the ISO 13506 standard. One of the most useful functions of these Manikin tests is to allow garments to be compared directly to each other under identical conditions.
