SAFETY COMES FIRST

Crash testing and ADR Compliance has been performed on all our products from 1997 to the present day, under the name of the Oliver Family. In fact we were the first manufacturer to bring ADR compliant drawers to the market. The Compliance pertains to any and all companies run by the Oliver Family both past and present.
Testing to ADR compliance
• ADR34/01 Child Restraint Anchorages
• ADR42/03 General Safety Requirements- drawer system- fridge slide
• AS/NZS 4034.2:2008 Partial Cargo Barriers for 60kg capacity
Our ADR compliant products have been tested to perform in real life crash tests. They have passed the Tests in compliance to the Australian Design Rules (ADR) for those products and they will perform to their rated capacities. Our products may cost a bit more but that is a small price to pay for the assurance you and your family will be safe.
Rated RV Storage Solutions systems can carry some serious cargo evenly distributed in and on the system.
This includes the fridge, recovery gear etc. We believe our rated capacities for our various drawer systems to be more than is required for any trip.
Drawer System Cargo Load Capacity
Premium Alloy 150kgs
Premium steel 250kgs
Our barriers are rated to 60kgs (AS/NZS 4034.2:2001)
It is good to know that they have been tested at these extreme weights and held safe to the vehicle in a crash test
Other manufacturers may claim to have crash tested similar products. It is important to know that when RVSS crash test products, they are not individually tested but tested together in a real crash scenario.
*NOTE: The complianced load rating on the ADR Certificate INCLUDES the Tare Weight of the tested storage system.
ADR42/03 General Safety Requirements
The cargo storage system must restrain specified load without being detached from the vehicle floor, nor to have sharp edges that are likely to increase injuries to the vehicle occupants in the event of an accident.
Our ADR rated Cargo Barrier, top shelves and dividing barriers are attached to the storage systems when tested. It’s important to know that all products will stay together if an accident occurs.
RVSS work closely with Automotive Safety Engineering P/L in product design and load carrying capacity. Weight is always an issue when adding equipment, gear and off road products to the vehicle. RVSS rate the carrying capacity of their gear based on the manufacturers specified carrying capacity of the vehicle. It is under these guidelines that we crash test and then give the gear a rated maximum load . These tests do not allow for other modifications.
If you intend to make any permanent or temporary changes to either the load capacity or seating capacity of your vehicle, RVSS strongly recommend that you speak to your relevant state regulatory authority.
