Hainsworth’s protective fabrics meet and surpass international industry standards and are rigorously tested in our UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No 4122), to ensure consistency at all stages of the manufacturing process.

Our in-house laboratory offers a range of standard tests for evaluating specific textile properties both physical ( e.g. tensile / tear strength, rub tests) and chemical (e.g. colour fastness).

Our in-house lab is where we test and learn how our fabric will perform in the harshest possible conditions emergency service professionals will face.

Debbie Parnaby – Laboratory Manager

We have also developed our own in-house test methods for instances where standard test methods do not exist to ensure that our fabric is able to cope with any potential situation on the frontline.

Our textile testing facility plays an integral part of new product development.
