  • Additionally, Jamco America has also developed the equipment necessary for performing the 300 joule impact testing required for demonstrating commercial aircraft flight deck doors and bulkheads resistant to forcible intrusion as specified in AC 25.795-1A.

  • Our facilities have been used for generating data to demonstrate compliance for many certification programs, including several FAA Supplemental Type Certificates, the Boeing 787 Type Certificate, and most recently the ARJ 21 Type certificate.

Static Testing

  • We have our own static test facility capable of performing both partial component and full scale static load testing of commercial aircraft interior furnishings. This facility has pneumatic actuators capable of applying loads of up to 15,000 lbs. and has been used to perform limit and ultimate load static tests of lavatories, galleys, closets, stowage units, class dividers, ceiling panels, and passenger seats.

  • In addition to full scale monument static testing, Jamco America also has an Instron machine capable of applying 20,000 lb. loads, which can be used for component testing, developing material allowables data, and developing slip resistance factors for floor coverings.

  • These facilities have been used for generating data to demonstrate compliance for many certification programs, including FAA, EASA, and CAAS Supplemental Type Certificates, and both Boeing and Airbus Type Certificates.

  • Jamco America also performs our own life cycle and robustness testing for mechanical mechanisms such as flight deck door electro-mechanical latches and seat kinematics.
