Braun Strong


Braun Industries has a long-standing commitment to safety and quality. With an ever-increasing eye for safety by the emergency-vehicle industry, they have the test data and the visual evidence that demonstrates that a Braun ambulance is truly “Built For Life”.

For decades, Braun Industries has been on the leading edge of safety and when coupled with our premium quality…creating high value for our customers. They kicked things off with our module’s roof and side load testing which exceeded the required load capacity by 300%. They followed that up with our “industry first” rollover module crash test. And now they have released the side impact AND rollover module crash testing…Braun Industries is forever committed to occupant safety.


Side Impact Crash Test – June 2016
The side impact test was conducted using a Ford F-150 weighing over 4600 lbs and was outfitted with accelerometers and rate sensors to measure the vehicle’s motion.  It served as a bullet vehicle to impact with the curbside of a new Braun ambulance.  The Ford F-150 was traveling over 40 mph on impact.  The impact created minor exterior body damage at the point of impact.  The impact had no penetration into the occupant area…none!

Rollover Crash Test – March 2016
Braun completed their first repeatable rollover crash test in Q1 2016 and debuted the footage at FDIC 2016. The test most closely compared to the anticipated SAE  (Society of Automotive Engineers) J3057 body integrity test. SAE J3057 outlines proposed procedures for conducting quasistatic structural integrity testing of the patient compartment for ground-based ambulance applications. Developed by members of the SAE Truck Crashworthiness Committee, it applies science to the design and testing of the patient compartment structure for a standardized, data-based approach to ambulance safety. This particular test focused on the modular body and roll impact loading, or in simpler terms, how well the box would hold up in the event of a rollover.
