Civil Installation

Our 30,000m2 test site allows for extensive product fitting including the permanent installation of roadside restraint sockets. We also offer a service to manage product installation and the supply of test vehicles.

Certification

Our experienced and dedicated team works directly with certification bodies and is able to provide advice and guidance on all facets of current and proposed future legislation. Our on-site certification team quickly homologate and certify products as well as provide CE marking.

Product Development

To support manufacturers with the development of roadside systems, our fleet of computer simulation vehicles simulate and test the effect of design modifications to any vehicle restraint, a piece of roadside furniture, bridge parapet or crash cushion, without incurring the costs associated with full-scale development testing.

Our linear impactor is a new and unique test tool designed to assist with the development of roadside infrastructure and their foundations. This asset is a permanent installation on our test site offering several dedicated trolleys of varying masses and impact speeds of up

to 30mph (48km/h), providing a flexible and fast turn-round capability. Our impact trolleys have been modelled by CAE to allow full product correlation to tests, supporting EN12767, BS12899-2. This reduces testing costs, as the need for an impact vehicle is eliminated. Impact trolleys also allow for quicker set-up and turnaround times, helping to speed up the product development phase.
