Tilting Mechanism Test

Objective: It evaluates the ability of the tilt mechanism (Synchro tilt-mechanism or multi function mechanism) to withstand the fatigue stress and wear by repeated tilting.

Procedure: A load of 45 kg is placed on the seat and back pulled/pushed without over riding or impacting both ends of the mechanism at the vertical center-line for 75000 cycles at the rate of 10 to 30 cycles per minute.

Base Load Test

Objective: It evaluates the ability of the pedestal to withstand the stress caused by excessive vertical forces.


A load of 1050 kg for PP base and 1200 kg for metal base is applied twice for a period of 1 minute

Caster / Chair Base Durability Test

Purpose:  This performance test is used to evaluate the stamina and ability of the seating  for say-to-day use.


A load of 120 kg placed in a hopper and mounted on the pedestal base with caster free to rotate and swivel. The chair is pulled/ pushed to and fro with a stroke length of approximately 762mm for 2000 cycles over and obstacles and then 98000 cycles without the obstacle at the rate of 10+/- 2 cycles per minute.
