Comfort, safety and durability with HSC2000 certificate


Often referred to as a “crash test” the HSC2000 Code Annex 10 test accelerates the test-seat with Hybrid Dummy to replicate a 12g collision. Measurements are taken from sensors on the dummy, not on the seat. Data from the test is analyzed and measurements must fall within agreed parameters determined by the IMO
