Loads are determined to ensure comfortable use, following a strict protocol of theoretical calculations validated by testing on bench.
We determine the acceptable standard load, according to our mounting conditions and standard use to provide proper operation: a soft and smooth sliding during an average lifetime.
The protocol follows the following steps:
With a computer calculation, the initial test load is determined by the tensile strength (Rm) and the yield point (Re).
This load is applied to the test frame to validate the calculated figures.
Once this calculation validated, we repeat these steps on other representative lengths of the range.
Eventually, a test on 15,000 cycles is performed on the most solicited length.
