Drop Testing Facilities
Impact Test Pad
For drop tests involving high mass objects, we offer a 4 x 4 x 4
metre concrete cube faced with a 50mm steel plate for use as an
'unyielding' drop target.
10m Drop Test Rig
This indoor vertical drop tower has a 10-tonne capacity hoist
and a variable drop height of up to 4 metres.
The rig's vertical height control and drop release system is
accurate to 1mm making it ideal for lower speed impact tests
(impact velocities up to 8m/s) in precisely controlled
This rig can also be used for high strain rate tests on, for
example, webbings used in fall arrest equipment.
25m Drop Test Rig
For faster impact speeds, we possess an outdoor drop tower which
offers a drop height variability of up to 25 metres and the
flexibility to accommodate a variety of instrumentation
This drop tower is suitable for testing objects up to 1 tonne,
giving impact energy of up to 240kJ at speeds of up to 20m/s.
