Crash Testing

Don't Gamble With Your Safety!

Crash Testing, Safety at work, safe on the way to work

Reach & Wash® Safety at work, safe on the way to work


No-one likes to think that the worst could happen, but sometimes it does. In the event of a road traffic accident, there is a very real danger that an improperly secured water tank could break free and kill or seriously injure the driver and passengers.

Ionic went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that your safety isn't compromised should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident. We developed our systems so that they will stay firmly anchored to the vehicle in the event of a collision.

But don't just take our word for it! We commissioned an independant crash-testing programme at the vehicle testing centre Thatcham Research.

Ionic Systems remain the ONLY supplier of water-fed pole equipment to be awarded the FMVSS-208 certification.


Development Testing

In order to meet the FMVSS-208 standard, several development tests were conducted on Thatcham's Hyper-G reverse acceleration sled. Sled tests are particularly useful for highlighting potential weaknesses, but only with an 100% impact test can you be sure how the machine will perform in a real crash. (This is why award of the FMVSS-208 certification requires 100% imapct testing)

100% Impact Barrier Tests

Following the development tests with the Hyper-G Sled, two 100% impact barrier tests were carried out at 30mph Only with a real 100% impact could we be sure how our machines would perform in a real crash. Click Here to See the 100% Impact Tests.

What our customers say

We have been very impressed with this system and will certainly be investing in another one in the future as we continue to expand.

John Jackson

Pure Effect Window Cleaning

It's a fantastic system, it cleans better, the work is easier. As for the winter, using hot water has definately enabled me to keep working. You could work in 2 inched of snow if you wanted to.

Andy Harding

Matrix Window Cleaning

I've been using Ionic's hot water Thermopure for four years now, it's especially faster on first cleans. Hot systems are more expensive than cold but I wouldn't be without it, espcially in the colder months
