Just as important as the entire exterior appearance when purchasing a vehicle, so are the functions of all the exterior components. Together, they must reflect the quality of the vehicle to the customer over its entire service life. Bertrandt subjects the exterior, as well as all individual components, to many comprehensive tests. This range of services extends from basic test drives all the way to load tests and the simulation of environmental influences.
The test spectrum of our specialist team includes the service life and material tests as well as load and misuse tests. Of course, the exterior tests are carried out in accordance with the applicable legal requirements, such as ECE R42 pendulum. Among other things, we also pay special attention to the possible misalignment of components due to expansion and contraction, as well as their fit after vibrational loads. In addition, we simulate a wide range of environmental influences, such as desert heat and dust, and icy or dry winters.
