Abstract

Purpose. The development of the national experimental sample of a firefighter hood.

Methods. The analytical review of foreign technical normative legal acts, which establish requirements for firefighter hoods and methods of their testing. The development of test methods for assessing protective properties of firefighter hoods. The results of the analysis are used to develop the national sample and to establish productive and protective requirements for a firefighter hood.

Findings. Under the conditions of the absence of the regulations establishing the requirements to structural and protective properties of a firefighter hood in the Republic of Belarus, the test procedures for PPE «fire hood» were developed. Constructive and protective properties of fire hoods were analyzed, and the technical normative legal acts regulating the requirements for this PPE were reviewed. Test method for assessing protective properties of the firefighter hood determining physical, mechanical and thermal requirements is an additional indicator of the protective properties of the material of hood. The results of laboratory tests conducted on a test basis of SPC Vitebsk department for emergency situations define the protective properties of the firefighter hood.

Application field of research. The obtained results will promote the development of a prototype of PPE «fire hood».

Conclusions. As a result of studying of statistical data on facial burns received by firefighters and rescuers during the liquidation of fires, the need for additional PPE «fire hood» was substantiated.
