XL Certification: You asked for it, We got it!
The EN 12642 standard establishes the main characteristics for transport units that have a structural strength designed to support the thrust of the load during transport.
These transport units are characterized by a label with the “XL” code and they are accompanied by a certificate attesting compliance with the EN 12642 standard, which indicates the forces that each wall can support.
Within certain limits, vehicles approved with the “XL” code allow to avoid fasteners such as belts, as their strength is such as to guarantee the retention of the load even in case of emergency maneuvers (in case of acceleration, braking, and steering).
In order to be approved according to this standard, the vehicles must be subjected to a series of tests thanks to which the retention of the cargo during transport will be guaranteed.
