Other Crash Tests

From Rollover to Fire Protection

In order to keep on acquiring new findings and to bring safety to the next level, the DEKRA Crash Test Center in Neumünster additionally offers numerous other crash tests. For instance, our test portfolio includes rollover tests for vehicle classes such as cars, vans, and buses, as well as test scenarios for the topics of fire protection and motorcycles.

  • Rollover: the ne plus ultra on a rollercoaster, a horror scenario in road traffic: the rollover. The number of rollover accidents has dropped thanks to ESP but rollovers cannot be avoided all together. Therefore, rollover crash tests continue to be important tests for the development of road safety.
  • Buses: The bus is the safest form of road transport that exists. Despite the fact that crash tests with buses are not required for homologation. Despite very few statutory regulations many bus manufacturers subject their vehicles to a range of extensive tests on a voluntary basis at our DEKRA Crash Test Center.
  • Two-wheelers: The safety of motorcycle drivers is influenced by many factors. Besides the two-wheeler itself, the protective clothing worn and the other party involved in the accident play a crucial role. Therefore, at the DEKRA Crash Test Center, besides the two-wheeler, the protective clothing and roadside safety barriers (guard rails, sliding walls, post cover, etc.) are also tested, on the basis of the globally valid standard ISO 13232. Furthermore, we also carry out test scenarios with bicycles, pedelecs and new mobility concepts, such as Segways.
  • Fire protection: In addition to crash safety, fire protection plays a significant role when it comes to buses. Tests are carried out for this together with accident research. The flammability of individual components is put to the test as much as fire spread, the formation of smoke and evacuation possibilities.

In the following table, you will find an overview of some of the crash tests with two-wheelers as well as rollover scenarios with cars, trucks, and buses that can be carried out at the Crash Test Center Neumünster. We will be happy to put together an individual offer for you.
