At Modrec International we are committed to product quality and innovative design. We understand how stressful and unpredictable travelling can be, and therefore are dedicated to creating travel solutions that can be relied on. We ensure our luggage and bags undergo a complete and thorough testing process, giving consumers one less thing to worry about. We pride ourselves on our rigorous quality control procedures to help ensure customers a smooth journey. Once a product has been designed, it goes through numerous sample stages, with each being an improvement on its predecessor. Once an optimal standard has been reached, that sample is retained as a ‘Quality Control’ check by which all inbound shipments are compared against.
Loading the cases to represent maximum realistic weights then lifting cases by the handle and then by the trolley handle, and any damage is then assessed.
Instead of lifting, this test involves catching or ‘snatching’ a fully loaded case by the handle and trolley as it falls.
Similarly to the Static Loading test, this involves loading cases and bags to realistic weights. Which are then dropped on their four corners from a standard height.
This involves exerting a force on a fully extended trolley system.
An extension of the Static Loading Test, the Repeated Test consists of cycling lift testing to simulate long term usage and durability.
Rolling a fully loaded case over a treadmill to simulate uneven road surfaces with various bumps and ridges along the rubber band.
Zips are tested horizontally to test stress resistance and the ‘stopper’ ensuring the zip is held securely.
To determine strength and structural integrity, there is a puncture test on the suitcase body, (both hard-sided ABS and soft-sided EVA), to measure the force needed to puncture the case.
