How do we measure rolling loads?
Here at CS, we hold ourselves to a high standard of quality and attention when calculating our products' rolling load capabilities.
There is no formal industry standard on rolling load testing. That’s why we took it upon ourselves to create a real-life testing method that reflects the day-to-day stresses that entrance mats or grids may face. Along with creating the method and the testing equipment, we even went one step farther by having all our results third-party certified by Architectural Testing, Inc. (ATI), so you know it’s legitimate.
Why do we go to such great lengths? Simple. If your building succeeds, we do too. If you’re better, we are too.
ESTABLISHING A PROCESS
Consider the wheel size
We use a hard polyurethane wheel in our rolling load testing. We find that this is the most realistic wheel type and can be found on most types of carts of lifts.
Staying true to the equipment most likely to cross our entrance mats and grids helps us to provide the most accurate results
Making it happen
As discussed above, we use a custom-built machine to test rolling load capabilities. See innovation in action.
We understand that every project has its own special criteria for entrance mats + grids, and that our standard designs may not be right for your needs. We have a team of technical experts that can work with you to design a custom entrance flooring product that meets your building's exact requirements.
