30° wedge

The 30 degree wedge is used to perform tests in accordance with the FMVSS 208 test specification.
Due to the symmetrical design, the wedge can be used for test scenarios on both sides. The integrated long holes enable a continuous height adjustment.

19 mm thick plywood panels are screwed on the impact surfaces, which can be easily replaced. The barrier is equipped with such a long impact surface (approx. 4500 mm) to ensure that the test vehicle slides along the 30 degree wedge and any contact with the crash block or crash wall can be excluded.
