ProLine crates have been
developed not just to meet your highest expectations about safe and comfortable
dog transportation but to exceed it. 4pets dog-boxes are made in Switzerland
and set new standards in terms of workmanship, design, handling as well as
safety and product ethics.
In many parts of the world, a
dog-box is already the most common and appreciated safety transportation system.
After years of testing and
gathering experience, leading automobile and pet associations in Europe are
convinced that a correctly used dog-box is the safest way to transport your dog
and promote stable, high quality metal dog-boxes, such as the 4pets ProLine, as
the safest way to transport a dog in a vehicle.
To guarantee adequate safety,
quality, durability as well as functionality, every dog safety transportation
systems for vehicles should undergo inspection by independent and recognized
technical service organizations or authority. Self-conducted safety and crash
test do not provide certified, independent and/or impartial judgment and
safety. Actually, they can be dangerous and misleading. This concern is also
addressed by a leading US pet non-profit organization. They want to create a
unified safety standard for harnesses and other safety products in the pet
Therefore, all 4pets safety
transportation systems undergo safety testing by the TÜV SÜD, the world leading
technical service organizations. Founded in 1866 in Germany, the TÜV SÜD is a
highly specialized testing and product certification company with particularly
extensive experience in the automotive industry. They are obliged to guarantee
the compliance with internationally standards and legal requirements.
Consequently, the TÜV SÜD product certification marks issued base on standards set
according to internationally recognized benchmarks. Therefore, TÜV tests
guarantee consumer to buy a safe and sound product.
The 4pets ProLine crates are
the first in the world with an official TÜV SÜD certification and only
independent safety tested till date. The Pro-Line passed the rigorous tests in
every aspect and have been awarded with the TÜV SÜD certification
(Certification nr. B 13 01 29106 011) on February 18th, 2013.
Following criteria have been
tested in the certification process of the TÜV SUD:
Test drives on bad road -
Belgian block test drive
Fixation in the vehicle
Cover pipe ends / risk of
Shearing and crushing points
Safety against rupture
General information and
General legal directives
Fulfillment REACH regulation
The 4pets ProLine dog-boxes
have been mounted on a sledge and loaded with reference weights of up to 55kg
(121.2 pounds). This setup is equivalent to a dog-box in a car trunk with a
folded-down rear bench. To comply with the TÜV-SUD provisions it had been required
that a dog does not break through the back panel in case of a head-on
collision. The tests have been executed with a speed of 50 kmph (31 mph).The
force generated during such tests are approximately equivalent to the
twentyfold weight of the load in the crate. All the crates have passed these
tests with excellent results. Additionally there have been test drives on a bad
road (Belgian block test drives) with 25 kmph (15.5 mph) with following
criteria: There must be no permanent deformations, which impair the function;
cargo must still be in secured condition; no breakdown of the attachment parts;
attachment parts must not loosen and doors must not open. The ProLine crates
also passed these tests and all the other above listed and tested aspects with
TÜV SÜD and 4pets are very
well aware of the fact that people normally do not drive with their back seat
down. A back seat in its normal upright position provides additional resistance
in case of an impact. The TÜV crash-test for the ProLine has been carried out
under aggravated conditions. In case of the ProLine, this was with a folded
down rear bench to investigate if the included straps could hold the crate in
its position and the animal does not break through the back panel during a
crash. The ProLine passed all tests under these aggravated conditions.
Consequently, in the normal every day situation with the extra resistance of
the upright rear bench to the back panel of the ProLine, it is even safer.
