Safety and Certification

Always Safety First

TL Engineering integrates the highest safety standards into the manufacture and installation of its vehicle solutions. It provides certified compliance to Australian Design Rules (ADRs) as required by the Australian Government’s Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989. This legislation requires all road vehicles, whether they are newly manufactured in Australia or are imported as new or second hand vehicles from overseas, to comply with the relevant rules at the time of manufacture and supply to the Australian market.

Testing and Compliance

TL Engineering is able to demonstrate compliance through a testing and certification regime that includes:

Testing of its products, in real-world installations, by a nationally renowned Australian company. The following products are tested to ensure they measurably enhance the safety of the vehicle and work with the built-in OEM safety features of the vehicle: Bull Bars, Roll Bars and Padding, Trays and Cargo Barriers.

The commissioning of professional industry experts to assess and report on uniquely modified vehicles prior to on-road licensing. These companies are officially sanctioned engineering signatories for modified vehicles in Western Australia and independently ensure that all ADR standards are satisfied.

To satisfy safety requirements for bus modifications, TL Engineering commissions independent engineers to ratify and approve all modified passenger buses without chassis. The modifications on other passenger buses, with chassis, are completed to comply with the safety standards mandated by VSB 6.
