Official test by the Danish Technological Institute

Engineers from the Furniture Laboratory at the independent Danish Technological Institute have been testing the Double Trolley thoroughly to prove that the stool meets the requirements of heavy daily use.

A simulation test proved that the Double Trolley has no problems withstanding a 95 kg/209 lbs. load set and reset 50,000 times! (picture left)

The Double Trolley can easily carry 130 kg/286 lbs. (!), which means that even the biggest bass players can sit safely on the stool...
Durability Test setup
The Strength and Durability Test:
  • Static load Test
    10 repetitions with a 10 second duration loaded with the following:
    - Seat: 1300N (130 kg/286 lbs.) vertically downward
    - Legs: 39 N (39 kg/86 lbs.), sideways against the edge of the seat.
  • Durability Test
    Seat loaded 50,000 times with 950 N (95 kg/ 209 lbs.).
  • Seat Impact Test
    An impact weight of 25 kg/55 lbs. falls to the seat 10 times from 180 mm/7 in. height.
  • Drop test
    The stool was dropped 10 times from 600 mm/23 in. above the floor on one front leg and 10 times on the rear leg. When the chair is dropped, it has an angle of 10 degrees in relation to the floor.

Test Result:
"Neither damages nor signs of beginning damages were observed after finishing the above test programme. The standing support/stool meets the requirements of ISO 7173, level 3, and is, therefore, found suitable for severe domestic use/light contract use."

Engineer E. Laug testing the stool


Whilst the other bassists in my section struggled carrying an uncased bass plus a bow and stool, I raced away with my double trolley! Then in the concerts, whilst the others creaked and squeaked away and got uncomfortable after an hour, I was silent and wonderfully comfortable, not to mention packed up and back on the coach way before the rest of them!
