Safety of the
Testing for safety and strength.
The purpose of the Scania strength test is
to verify the ability of the structure to resist deformation after severe
collision impact. The test cycle is in three parts:
Static load on the cabís roof of 15 tonnes.
Front impact with a pendulum weight of 1.5 tonnes,
dropped from a height of 3 metres directly onto the A-post.
Rear impact with a pendulum weight of 1.5 tonnes
dropped from a height of 3 metres directly onto the rear panel.
Following the complete test-cycle, there must be
adequate survival space remaining within the cab for the driver and passengers.
Furthermore, the doors of the cab must not burst open. Finally, the cab
structure should remain fixed at all mounting points with the chassis.
The Scania Crew Cab makes these appliances very safe
for the 8 Firefighters on board.
