According to CAPE, the Center for Advanced Product Evaluation, their facility is the only crash test facility of its kind in the world with the equipment and expertise to help manufacturing clients improve their products through unsurpassed quality, credibility, responsiveness, and precise results. That’s what it means to be “CAPE Tested.”
CAPE is home to the biggest barrier block in the world, and we put it to good use. Just a few of the kinds of vehicles CAPE has crash tested include military equipment, motor coaches, school buses, commercial trucks, fire trucks, ambulances, and a wide array of vehicles for motor sports. CAPE crash tests all types of vehicles at its facility in Westfield, Indiana.
Braun Industries teamed up with CAPE Testing to conduct the Fire/EMS industry’s first rollover ambulance crash test. They crashed a 10 year old unit in a test that most closely compares to the anticipated SAE J3057. The test focused on the modular body and roll impact loading, or how well the box holds up in the event of a rollover.
