A comprehensive equipment testing service from Respirex designed to help you comply with the latest Health and Safety regulations.

Our skilled and fully trained Service Engineers provide third party certification for your equipment that helps with a safety audit trail for the HSE and assist you to ensure that the equipment is suitable for use and complies with the latest regulations.


Material Testing

We test every element of our products to ensure their safety, performance and comfort. Some testing is carried out at our factory while some is undertaken for us at specialist accredited testing laboratories. 

We thoroughly test our materials for their chemical resistance at an independent UKAS accredited laboratory for chemical permeation testing and for testing the physical properties of materials. We regularly re-test our fabrics and seams to ensure quality.

Permasure Toxicity Modeller.jpg


PermaSURE® is a new software tool designed to help answer one simple question: How long can I work safely in this environment?

Using the latest toxicity modelling techniques, the PermaSURE® app calculates your safe working time based on the chemical you are working with, the extent of your exposure, the suit you are using and the suit temperature.


Chemline Advisory Service

Chemline is a specialist post-incident advisory service for hazardous materials (Hazmat) emergency teams. Chemline can call on over 20 years of experience of the ways in which various chemicals affect different protective fabrics.

This truly independent subscription based service was set up in 1997, at the behest of CACFOA, to advise whether chemical protective clothing (CPC) can safely be re-used following a chemical incident. 




Respirex manufacture protective garments from a wide range of high-performance materials.
