Incorporation of Standards

Air treatment in agricultural machinery, construction vehicles and industrial vehicles is a key part of maintaining driver comfort when working. It is also a key safety concern, especially when working with harmful or toxic substances. SNDC incorporates numerous standards into its design and development processes to provide optimum solutions for a range of activities and working conditions.

Test Centre

Prototyping and testing are essential steps in the development of both standard and custom solutions. During these phases, SNDC carries out thorough tests on air conditioning, heating, de-icing, pressurisation and filtration systems, applying the relevant standards for each sector and working environment. SNDC boasts testing facilities that are capable of simulating a range of working conditions (from -35 to 55 °C, humidity levels, sunlight conditions, etc.).

Our test facilities have FD X 15-140 – May 2013 certification, which validates our calibration procedures.
