StarBart Ballast-Manikin


The StarBart - our star under the ballast manikins

As supplied to leading manufacturers and testing industries

  The StarBart is a ballast dummy that can be filled with water or other materials (e.g. sand) to simulate different weights and/or masses of one person in a test situation.

Great properties of the StarBart are:
• low net weight (10,5 kg)
• reusable
• modular design
• suitable for all standard vehicle seat designs

There are various possibilities of testing situations in which the StarBart can be used.

In the area of vehicle/air craft industry:
safety belt
roll-over bar
tire traction
accident simulation

In the area of amusement parks:
roller coaster and other fairground rides
initial ride set-up

In addition the StarBart can be used for testing of various types of transportation, e.g. for tests of wheel chairs, chair lifts, boats, trucks, aircraft and elevators.

A great advantage of the StarBarts is the modular design. The modular assembly of single parts provides an easy handling. All single parts can separately be filled with water (or other material) and transported. On-site assembly the single parts is easy and therefore transportation problems due to weight and/or size are eliminated.

Often ballast testing is done with sandbags. However, the filling of the sandbags takes considerably more time than filling the StarBart with water. Due to the modular design the transportation of StarBarts is much more comfortable and prevents damage to the back of the persons having to carry it. Of course the StarBart is reusable and easy to store.

A StarBart completely filled with water has a weight of 80 kg. However, other materials can be used for filling. Each single part ot the Starbart has a fill and drainage hole through which the desired material can be filled in upto the required weight. The size of the StarBarts corresponds to that of a medium sized male person.
