INDOOR 1 PROVING GROUND
Indoor 1 is a straight area mainly built for objective tests on snow and ice surface.
The test area comprises a total of 400 m x 15 m sectioned into 290 m of snow, 10 m of asphalt and 100 m of ice. Snow and ice surfaces are separated to minimise the influence of snow on the ice track. The ice section can be used at an air temperature of up to +4 degrees for testing on “black ice”.
Tests can be performed with vehicles ranging in size from cars to full size trucks.
Air and track temperature can be adjusted between -3 to -12 degrees. In addition to the cold testing areas there are cold chambers to cool down vehicles and equipment down to -30 degrees. There is a ventilation system with air quality and humidity control. Both facilities have electric connections for charging of electric vehicles. We offer exclusive use for each customer which means there will only be one customer in each the facility at a time.
Full service facilities
Both indoor facilities have offices, a kitchen, workshops, tyre preparation rooms with a tyre wash and fitting machines in direct connection with the track area.
For testing of TBR tyres we provide our new DAF LF45 which is equipped with measurement equipment for both indoor and outdoor tyre testing. The truck fits tyres sized 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5”.
We can also provide a wide range of rental cars for tyre testing. Onsite we have vehicle scale and sand bags to balance the test cars.
As an additional service we provide tyre fitters, studding, running-in and stud protrusion measurement. We will always try to accommodate any particular requirements and we strive to offer the best possible test conditions and a high level of service.
Combining wet and dry testing
From May to October it is possible to combine indoor and outdoor testing on wet and dry asphalt in cool climate. This enables the customers to carry out more tests during their visit and therewith improve their testing efficiency.
Doing as many tests as possible in the same place and at the same time simplifies things and makes testing more efficient.
