Test of mechanical load and usability
A safe functionality and use of many products of daily life, whether in housework or leisure time, depend on their mechanical safety. The most frequent hazards are contusions, cuts due to sharp edges, falling and tripping. On the one hand, DEKRA examines whether the products withstand the mechanical load during intended use; on the other hand, we test whether the product’s construction allows a safe and hazard-free use. This contains explicitly the testing of safety and warning labels and the entire user documentation explicitly.
As a partner for safety we also support our customers for researching relevant standards and directives and when compiling the technical documentation including a hazard assessment where necessary. We will also help you finding solutions considering the interpretation of standards.
The following product types are in focus particularly::
