Van Racking Crash Test

For our Van Racking, we commissioned the Servo Sled Laboratory at Millbrook Proving Ground to conduct a ‘Duty of Care’ dynamic sled test of a goods racking system mounted to a test rig. The rig was manufactured by Millbrook Proving Ground to simulate a van body.

The dynamic test was conducted to verify the integrity of racking drawers, compartments and loading shelves and their respective anchorages to the test rig when fully loaded with the maximum masses as per our specifications.

Roof Rack Bars & Pipe Tube

The dynamic test was carried out using the Millbrook Proving Ground Servo Sled and Safety Systems facility.
The Servo Sled, manufactured by Seattle Safety, is a 1.4MN is a reverse acting linear shock tester. The sled system utilises a hydraulic servo brake acting directly on the sled carriage to control the acceleration of the sled. By this means the sled carriage, on which the test material is mounted, is accelerated in the manner required.
The test was conducted using an acceleration pulse that meets the requirements of the luggage retention test specified in ECE Regulation 17.
The test items were secured onto surrogate roof rack mountings and fastened to the sled in a position that would simulate a zero degree frontal impact test.
The ballast item, provided by Millbrook, was placed into the test item in the manner to simulate a fully loaded Van Pipe Tube.
