Fully pull tested and M1 certified:
The easy spinner double seat swivel base has been out through pull testing, and has received it’s M1 certifications for passing this test.
Pull testing is the go-to safety test for ensuring the mounts and fixings of vehicle seats are strong and secure enough to withstand the pressures of a vehicle collision.
The test simulates a crash at 30 miles per hour into solid concrete, and subjects the seat to the same pressures experienced during such a crash.
Seats which pass this test are awarded the M1 standard, which has been set out by the European Union for passenger-carrying vehicles carry no more than eight seats.
The pull test also ensures that the seatbelt mounting points remain located in the correct position, in relation to an adult’s hip and shoulder. Having these mounting points placed correctly reduces the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash.
