You can rely on our independence.

Whether in catering, healthcare or fire protection, many occupations require that special clothing is worn. It represents companies or the profession or protects against one or more risks which could endanger the health of the wearer (personal protective equipment).

In spite of the functional differences, workwear and personal protective equipment have a lot in common: both must be best adapted to their purpose and also have good wear comfort and a good fit, and they should not lose their characteristics after the first wash. In other words: workwear should look good, protect and be as durable as possible.

As an accredited, neutral test laboratory and notified certification body, Hohenstein is your competent partner regarding compliance with legal requirements. However, we can also offer a wide range of services relating to suitability for rental and industrial reprocessing, optimum fit and pattern, biological safety and hygiene, UV protection and sustainability, the preparation of technical performance descriptions and many other textile technology and chemical tests. After all, that is our job. And we enjoy it and do it well.
