Head Seat Sprinter (7,625 lb.)
This Passenger Restraint Load preliminary Test has been performed on a Demers EXE Sprinter Type II ambulance model. The attachment points were tested with a load of 7,625 lbs. This test has been done during the development of the system to verify the design. The load was applied using a jig to represent different types of seat assembly having a center of gravity and a higher weight than the average seats supplied by Demers thereby validating the ability of the floor anchors according to a "worst case". The load applied was close to 25% more than the load required by CMVSS / FMVSS for this model.
