Van Conversion Design For Crashworthiness

Crash Engineering Solutions Limited has over the years helped clients in the Body Building Business convert Vans to Buses or help build superstructures on open chassis. We design-in all the modifications, carry out the FE analysis to make sure stress concentrations are avoided in the modifed load paths, hence prevent premature structural failure.

We Virtual Test converted buses, Ambulances, and Specialised Utility Vehicles to ECE R66 and ECE R29 Regulations. Many Small to Medium companies in the UK, EU and China have benefited from our skills, expertise and experience.
