Do you need thermal insulation measurements to support product development?

We also carry out thermal insulation measurements of footwear, headgear, and face covers, as well as sleeping bags, in our testing laboratory. The test results provide valuable additional information for product development and research.

Our testing laboratories are unique and suitable for various uses

Located in Oulu, our unique laboratories give you control of the testing conditions in a wide range of temperatures, with the inclusion of wind (0–18 m/s), water, and humidity. That is why they can be used for many different purposes.

The laboratory is suitable for physiological, medical, and technological research and development purposes. The laboratory’s own versatile research equipment enables studying human thermal balance and the impact of physical stress on work ability in cold and hot environments, as well as in water exposure.

You can also rent our premises for larger projects. Even then, our personnel will take care of the use of the measurement devices.
