UNFORTUNATE REACH & WASH® SYSTEM IN AN ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT
Published: January 8, 2019
Ionic Systems have gone to extraordinary lengths to make sure that your safety isn’t compromised should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident. We developed our systems so that they will stay firmly anchored to the vehicle in the event of a collision. We commissioned an independent crash-testing programme at the vehicle testing centre Thatcham Research.
A long-time customer of Ionic, Alfresco Group, were unfortunate enough to have one of their vehicles involved in a road traffic accident a few weeks ago. The van had an Ionic Reach & Wash® system fitted. As documented in the crash-testing programme the system stayed to securely in place thanks to the Thatcham FMVSS-208 approved clamps, bolts and exacting fitting standards all Reach & Wash® systems have.
Mark Toovey, Alfresco Group Managing Director, commented in a recent online post:
“I thought I would share with you all why it’s important to secure your systems correctly. One of our vans was involved in a RTA a few weeks ago. Van not in a good way. The Ionic System hasn’t shifted at all, some deformation to the rear floor. For those that wedge and strap systems in the back please think twice. Glad to say no one hurt in accident, just bruises and clean pants!”
The risk associated with van mounted water tanks, window cleaning equipment and systems that are not secured in a compliant way could have unwanted consequences.
