SEAT BELT & RESTRAINT SYSTEM TESTING

Seat Belt Testing

Testing to the Strictest International Regulations

In addition to testing every GWR Safety System product internally, we have safety restraint models tested by third party testing laboratories to assure their compliance with the strictest international regulations. The performance of our complete seat belts are tested according to ECE R16, FMVSS 209, FMVSS 302, SAE J386, SAE J2292, ECE R44 and ADR 4. Our harnesses are tested and approved by the SFI Foundation and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA 8853/98 and FIA 8854/98 ).

Our in-house Testing Capabilities Include:
6 Station Retractor Durability Cycler

Our seat belt systems have been dynamically tested in car-like setups since 1990. Our extensive experience with dynamic sled testing gives us in-depth knowledge of the best anchor points and overall system designs to provide safety in all vehicles. Sled tests are controlled using a fully computerized crash control system. Sensors, instrumentation, cameras, towing, acceleration, velocity, test input data can be set and monitored.
