Understanding EN 960: European Standard for Head Form Testing
Introduction to EN 960
EN 960 stands as a linchpin in European safety standards, specifically addressing the constructional and dimensional details of head forms used in the testing of protective helmets. Developed and maintained by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), this standard plays a pivotal role in validating the efficacy of helmets in protecting individuals against head injuries.
Significance of Head Form Testing
Protective helmets are designed to mitigate the impact of head injuries across diverse industries and activities. From sports to industrial settings, the efficacy of these helmets is directly tied to their ability to absorb and distribute impact energy. EN 960 establishes the criteria for head forms used in impact testing, ensuring that helmets undergo assessments under realistic and standardized conditions.
Requirements Imposed by EN 960
EN 960 meticulously outlines the constructional details of head forms, specifying parameters such as shape, size, and material. These details are critical in ensuring that the head forms accurately represent the human head, allowing for reliable assessments of helmet performance.
Precision is paramount in head form testing, and EN 960 leaves no room for ambiguity. The standard dictates stringent dimensional requirements for head forms, guaranteeing consistency across testing procedures and facilitating meaningful comparisons between different helmet models.
Weight and Mass Distribution
The weight and mass distribution of head forms are critical factors in simulating real-world scenarios. EN 960 provides explicit guidelines to ensure that the weight and mass distribution of the head forms mimic the characteristics of the human head, enabling accurate evaluations of helmet impact resistance.
To simulate realistic impact conditions, EN 960 defines specific requirements for impact velocity during testing. This ensures that helmets undergo assessments under conditions that mirror potential real-life scenarios, enhancing the reliability and relevance of the test results.
