MetadataShow full item record
The heat stress when wearing two chemical protecting garments, NORMANS C-membrane and NORMANS C-desert, was compared. Five persons were tested wearing the two garments, walking on a treadmill in a climate chamber at room temperature (+25°C). Body temperatures, sweat production and respiratory parameters were measured during the test-period. The subjects experienced a significantly higher raise in core temperature during the test period wearing NORMANS C-membrane than NORMANS C-desert. They also had a higher sweat production and a higher increase in heart rate. This study shows that the heat stress is significantly higher wearing NORMANS C-membrane than NORMANS C-desert.
