Work in progress is described for simulating the soiling of vertically mounted textiled surfaces. A sealed chamber has been constructed and different textiles exposed to a standard test dust. Colorimetric comparisons are made of samples before and during exposure and results correlated to the integrated particulate concentration of the chamber.

Results will be linked to other methods of measuring particulate soiling with the eventual aim of developing a predictive tool for soiling of vertically mounted textiles.
