Testing & Safety
To see what we mean, watch a few of the clips below from the Rollover Test we performed on a Champion® Bus at our facility in South Hutchinson, Kansas.
Champion® is among the highest in the industry to send products to be tested at the Altoona track. In fact, we were one of the first manufacturers to send a cutaway bus to undergo durability testing at the Altoona testing facility, and we continue to test all our buses on a simulated Altoona test track at the manufacturing facility.
Many of the tests administered are completed at Penn State’s Altoona facility – a name trusted the world over for their comprehensive safety assessments.
Here are just some of the tests we have conducted on Champion® Buses:
- FMVSS 207/210 – Seat Pull
- FMVSS 220 – Roof Crush
- FMVSS 221 – Joint Strength
- FMVSS 302 – Fire Retardant
- ECE-R66 – Rollover (3rd Party Tested)
- Side Impact (3rd Party Tested)
