Vertical impact test
Swing arm impact test
Telescopic handle free movement test
Stairs and road conditions
The case is loaded with 16 kg (for Carry-Ons) and placed inside a rotating chamber full of obstacles designed to maximize high drops and hard impacts – simulating rough handling during transport. The test is run for 25 cycles.
A load of up to 25 kg is placed inside the case, with an additional 7 kg of weight on the telescopic handle. The suitcase is angled at 45° and rolled at a speed of 4 km/h on a specialized treadmill with bumps to simulate uneven terrain. This test is run for the equivalent of 32 km.
Telescopic handle jerk test
The suitcase is loaded with up to 25 kg, and suspended in the air by the telescopic handle. It is lifted, dropped, and then suddenly stopped by the telescopic handle after freefalling a specified distance. This cycle is repeated 300 times.
Wheel abrasion test
The suitcase is loaded with up to 25 kg and placed with all four wheels in contact with two rollers spinning at a speed equivalent to 4 km/h. The rollers have bumps to simulate uneven terrain. This test is run for the equivalent of 32 km.
The suitcase is stored at -12°C for 4 hours before testing, and then loaded with up to 25 kg inside. It is then dropped on each surface, edge, and corner from a height of 90 cm.
Stairs and road conditions test
A load of up to 25 kg is placed inside the case, with an additional 7 kg of weight on the telescopic handle. The suitcase is angled at 45° and rolled on a cylinder with steps built in to simulate the hard impact of stairs, and repeated for 750 cycles.
