In the A-Safe factory there are two impact calibration rigs; one, a dynamic pendulum impact simulator and one a static constant force simulator. The other method is to erect barriers and, under controlled safety conditions, bash them with a forklift truck.
On the day in question, all three tests were carried out, as well as filming in general to show the endto- end manufacturing process.
