Testing, testing, testing
All our products under go a rigorous testing programme. Annually we conduct over 500 tests. It tends to keep us kinda busy!
We test for stuff like toxicity, environmental consideration, flammability, safety hazards, durability, functionality, usability, labelling and instructions on all our products.
All this testing means that we meet requirements in all 50 countries worldwide in which we sell our products. We want to ensure peace of mind - that's why we also carry out on-going testing, in the factory and field, as things can change and we don't want to miss anything.
Sometimes our products get tested by mistake when wheels fly off trucks and buggies get hit proving that our buggies really do save lives!
Not a lot of people know that:
- our buggies are tested for 400kms/250 miles on variable terrain for 80 plus hours
- our traveller can cope with frame loading equivalent to 90kg/200lbs
- a weight of 18kg/40lbs has been dropped into each of the metro and escape seats 49,900 times. Phew – exhausted? We are!
