Quality

What we deliver is complete — not only are our products beautiful and functional, they are also meant to last. We test how our products perform and endure in harsh environments, during repetitive use, and under excessive loads, using a variety of tests. Products are put in salt spray test, chemical resistance, FEM-analyses, to push the durability to its limits and assure sustainability.

Besides these tests of quality we are often on site to partake in the installing of new products and to examine how existing ones have performed through the years. These regular follow-ups and customer feedback contribute to our continuous development and allows us to keep pushing and break new grounds.

All of the production — from idea to finished product — takes place in Sweden, a country known for its industrial tradition, innovation, and social sustainability; a  heritage that we embody by ensuring that no steps of the manufacturing processes are dangerous or straining for the workers, relying on automation for repetitive motions. Furthermore are our concerns for environmental sustainability, and we have made it so that our products are produced with renewable energy in Sweden and without hazardous emissions.

Mechanical Endurance Testing

Testing our product’s mechanical durability is essential to get insights in our product’s potential weaknesses and to ensure ideal performance. When we decided for how many repetitions, or cycles, that our tests should run in our starting point was at least one action per day, 365 days a year in 10 years. That results in 3,650 cycles so we decided to run for minimum 5,000 cycles. Depending on functionality tested this might vary to larger amount of cycles.

KEY LOCKING MECHANISM FULL CYCLE

This test simulates excessive load on the locking mechanism and its sub-steps in a full cycle. Reason we make this full cycle test is to make sure the different type of stress that the locking mechanism endures.

  • Project: SPAZA
  • No. of Cycles: 6 578 cycles
  • Load: 9 kg
  • Product: Spaza Bottle Holder Key Lock
  • Test result: Approved
  • Reason test was stopped: Passed 5 000 cycles

KEY LOCKING MECHANISM PUSH KEY

This test simulates excessive repetitive use of key in the lockable bottle holder hence durability of locking spring.

  • Project: SPAZA
  • No. of Cycles: 10 982 cycles
  • Load: 9 kg
  • Product: Spaza Bottle Holder Key Lock
  • Test result: Approved
  • Reason test was stopped: Passed 5 000 cycles

KEY LOCKING MECHANISM FORCE OPEN

This test simulates excessive load on the locking arm, such as the load one guest might put to the mechanism to try force open it.

  • Project: SPAZA
  • No. of Cycles: 7 152 cycles
  • Load: 9 kg
  • Product: Spaza Bottle Holder Key Lock
  • Test result: Approved
  • Reason test was stopped: Passed 5 000 cycles
