Training in Sandhurst Training at Rutland.
Continual Research, Development and Staff Training are a core of a day’s work in the office. Product queries from phone calls or instructions from training days add culture to what we do and why we do it. Learning about a product, the strength and weaknesses, the does and don’ts and how to fit, adjust or alter are making great products greater.
Having found a broken product we set out to prove to our customers that our products are built for endurance beyond expectation. Learn about the sliding shuttle here or watch the video on:
Today we going to have some fun!
There are three things we are going to do:
- Try and break the shuttle in the slide rail
- We going to over tighten the fixing to break the shuttle
- We are going to swing on it to see whether we can pull it out!
1: First of all the long Alan key that comes in the pack – we are going to try and over tighten the fixing, we‘ve got nice long leverage. Mighty tight – springing the steel as it takes the strain! That is ridiculously tight but it’s still not broken the shuttle!
2: The stop block in the slide rail is tightened and adjusted for position with the Alan key. Today we are going to see whether, if we bang it repeatedly against the stop block to see whether the sliding shuttle breaks! Doing this action is neither breaking the stop block, the sliding shuttle or the door closer in the door! It’s more a case of pulling the hinges off rather than damaging anything of the door controls.
3: Now for the funny bit! I’ve not tried this yet! I’m going to swing on ere and it will either break, or bend or I’ll bust me back! I’m not going to look up for safeties sake but put the strain on the bar with the whole weight of my body. And it’s not come off!
The concealed door closer… still works perfectly… after all that hassle!
Now we taken that slide rail out of the frame – fastened the block on the rail. Tightened as tight as we can and it’s not come through. Try and pull it up to break it! And all it is doing is bending the bar – it’s not breaking it. We tried it again this way – still not breaking it! There’s me slide block in the rail, let’s see if we can break it by bending over my knee! Now broken through that shear force but only through that shear force…
Three things we did:
- over tightening the bolt
- banging the shuttle against the stop
- swinging on it with full weight!
Certified to last!
