To test:

With our partly self-developed and standardised measuring instruments and methods, such as the Hohenstein Skin Model and the thermal manikins, the effective thermal insulation of the surface material and the clothing is measured using standardised and internationally recognised test methods (ISO 11092 and ISO 15831).

In addition to the laboratory tests, test persons are also used on a case-by-case basis in the climate chambers of the Hohenstein Laboratories.

The measured values obtained provide the basis for calculating the so-called area of use of the tested clothing. Depending on the application of the textile, the parameters of the calculations are adjusted. For example, winter clothing for sporting activities is assessed differently than everyday clothing for cold winter days. It must always be taken into account that the sensation of cold and warmth is perceived differently and is strongly dependent on the physical activity of the wearer.
