WHAT DOES THE FACE FIT SERVICE ENTAIL?

Quantitative face fit testing can give an objective assessment of facial fit and provides a direct numerical result called a fit factor. The Portacount machine measures the number of ambient particles inside and outside a face piece and proves a numeric result which is a ratio of the two over a given period. The mask is attached to the Portacount and the user completes a variety of exercises whilst stepping on an aerobics step. If the user successfully achieves a pass on each exercise at the end of the test a fit test report/certificate is produced.
