Exciting news for Clearcut Conversions, we now have RIB Altair Seat Anchorage Kits which have been M1 Pull Tested.
Please see a link to our video of the test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ueo9T7bd9Ck
M1 Tested Anchorage Kit for the RIB Altair that is suitable for use with 112, 120, 130 and 150cm seats. The Seat Anchorage Kit has had M1 in vehicle testing to ECE R14 and passed requirements easily, with over 10,000kgs of applied force.
We realise it isn’t feasible to have in vehicle testing in all seat positions, with all seat variants and widths. With that in mind, and to fully test the integrity of our Seat Anchorage Kit, we installed a 3 seater, 150cm width seat within a VW T5 chassis shell. We installed the seat in the weaker non slider position (this is where the VW T5 chassis beams are at their narrowest).
Testing the Seat Anchorage Kit with the Full width 150cm seat compared to the more commonly used 112cm width seat, meant that a much higher test load was applied due to the extra seat belt present and the increased weight of the seat.
Given that the Seat Anchorage Kit easily held the higher test pressures we have concluded that it is also suitable for seats that are exposed to smaller applied forces. (i.e. lighter seats, with fewer occupants).
We have designed the Kit to be a universal installation system for RIB seats in VW T5 and T6. The kit comes with easy to follow instructions and can be used with both Slider and non slider seat versions. (please note the kit won’t fit 4 motion vans)
Because of its “Chanell” design the kit can be used to place the slider version of the RIB Altair in its optimum position towards the back of the van, something that other kits based on a solid beam cannot, due to interference.
All seats purchased to fit a VW T5/6 will now benefit from the Seat Anchor Kit being included in the price.
