Sled Facility for Dynamic Crash Tests

The acceleration sled test facility is for examining the crash-proofness of components, seating systems, children’s seats and restraint systems.


The ultra-modern acceleration sled test facility ensures maximum precision and supplies more exact findings than a conventional drop tower system.
