AEV Ambulance Test Record Based on current research in ambulance safety, the structure of the modular body is a vital component of occupant safety and risk. The US Federal Ambulance Standard KKK-A-1822E provides a detailed standard and test criteria for modular ambulance body load testing. Ambulance manufacturers are required to certify their bodies to a 150% Load test applied to the roof of the vehicle. No side load is required. The roof load averages 15,000-17,000 pounds depending on the final weight of the completed vehicle.
In 2000, American Emergency Vehicles (AEV) of Jefferson, North Carolina, shattered industry criteria by successfully testing a body to 36,000 pounds (see details). AEV then pushed even further by applying this load not only on the roof, but on the side of their body as well. At that time, the company stated that these tests clearly demonstrated the superior strength of the AEV body.
AEV has made significant enhancements in the structure of their ambulance body in the interest of occupant safety. To validate their design, they have now announced that they have tested and certified their body to 55,000 pounds on both the roof and side. The AEV test has now raised the bar on ambulance body structure criteria.
