Simulation of gravel on body parts painted
Renault D24-1699
  • Reproduces the effects of gravel impact
  • Sends only one projectile at a time
  • Specimen holder adjustable

This technological trial consists of reproducing the impact effect of gravel on vehicles (either lacquered or painted surfaces). The distinguishing feature of this device lies in the fact that only  one projectile at a time is fired and the pitcher can be moved at each shot.

The sample support can be swivelled by 15°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 75° or 90°. A screen is positioned behind the sample to retain any projectiles which are fired over the sample. An angled spout collects used projectiles.

Available versions:
