Crash Testing - 100% Impact Tests


IIn order to meet the FMVSS-208 standard, several development tests were conducted on Thatcham's Hyper-G reverse acceleration sled.

Following these tests and the chassis design and installation changes that resulted, 100% impact barrier tests at 31.1mph were conducted as required for FMVSS-208 certification.

Test 1: Reach & Wash System
Speed: 50km/hr (31.1mph)
Machine: 1,000 litre Ionic Systems Reach and Wash Pro-5 (FULL)
Test Result: PASS

Comments:
As expected, the damage to the front of the vehicle was severe, but the machine

Test 1: Competitors System
Speed: 50km/hr (31.1mph)
Machine: (Competitor's System)
Test Result: FAIL

Comments:
To illustrate the need for crash-testing and the very real danger that exists, Thatcham Research conducted a comparative test using a competitors system.

As you can see, the machine failed to stay anchored to the vehicle, and in an accident woud have casued severe injury or even death to the driver and passengers.


As a result of this crash testing programme, Ionic Systems were awarded FMVSS-208 certification for their systems, and remain the ONLY manufacturer to acheive this standard.

What our customers say

We have been very impressed with this system and will certainly be investing in another one in the future as we continue to expand.

Pure Effect Window Cleaning

It's a fantastic system, it cleans better, the work is easier. As for the winter, using hot water has definately enabled me to keep working. You could work in 2 inched of snow if you wanted to.

Andy Harding

Matrix Window Cleaning

I've been using Ionic's hot water Thermopure for four years now, it's especially faster on first cleans. Hot systems are more expensive than cold but I wouldn't be without it, espcially in the colder months
