Strength tests

During strength testing the stroller will be loaded with a variety of different masses ranging from 9 kg to 15 kg each designed to simulate a child during use of the item. While loaded with these masses, the stroller or pushchair is then subjected to vigorous stability, impact and durability testing.

 

Durability tests

We test key repeat use components of the stroller products by subjecting them to repeat cycles of use, ensuring they will function as intended during the time the stroller is in use. Parking devices and locking devices are activated and deactivated 200 times and then put through further strenuous testing. The wheels on the stroller are also tested for durability on a rolling road travelling at 5 km/h and having to deal with several obstacles 72,000 times.

 

Entrapment tests

In line with EN 1888, we assess any area on the stroller where a child could become trapped are tested for size using probes varying from the size of a child’s finger to the size of their head and hips.
