Title Comparative study of safety helmets produced in Poland and elsewhere
Original title Badania porównawcze hełmów produkcji krajowej i zagranicznej [in Polish]
Bibliographic information 1977, Vol.27, No.94, p.233-255. Illus. 41 ref.
Abstract Nine Polish, Swedish, English and West German models were tested. The chief function of safety helmets in industry is referred to, and the results of studies are described relating to impact and penetration resistance, water absorption, flammability, resistance to lateral crushing, dielectric strength, resistance to acids and alkalis, microclimatic conditions in the helmet, and protection against radiant heat. Tabulation of results permits comparison between the different helmets. Diagrams of the instruments used in the tests are given, and recommendations are made for improvements to existing models and future design, taking the hazards and conditions of use into account.
