Toyo Seat has in house all of the necessary automotive testing equipment and we test our products under all required conditions and situations. We have installed the latest Servo Sled collision test equipment and are able to perform whip-lash test as well as simulation tests of both rear and frontal collisions. We have the capability to test our products under temperature extremes between +120C to – 40C in our temperature & humidity chambers as well as a multitude of BSR, fatigue and durability equipment. Our continuous study makes us flexible to create suitable designs for any conditions in every country of the world. Toyo Seat, performs all necessary testing to create safe and high quality products throughout the globe.
