Volume Test Baggage
The CHS Volume Test Bag range incorporates Extra Large, Large, Medium and Cabin Sized bags in both hard shell and soft-shell ranges.
Hard-Shell Volume Test Luggage
The CHS Hard-Shell range is made from durable polypropylene that allows the external shell to absorb impact by 'flexing' when under heavy stress. We use designs where the shell will not permanently deform when under pressure, but instead will 'pop' back up into its original shape. External handles and built in wheels are provided for easy airside handling and marshalling. We guarantee that our hard-shell test bags will not shatter or splinter in use.
Soft-Shell Volume Test Luggage
Our zippered soft cases are designed to withstand the rough and tumble of conveyor and sortation systems. The bags are finished in a variety of colours and are typically constructed from a tough 300 denier polyester fabric. A wide range of styles and sizes are available to simulate luggage from the maximum allowable load to the minimum Input Statement items that are permitted at your airport.
Low-Cost Volume Test Items
We offer a range of volume test baggage that incorporates ridged 3 ply carboard boxes as well as soft shell luggage. This is intended for customers who are planning shorter periods of testing and want to avoid the higher cost of more durable luggage. Our cardboard items are supplied in a variety of weights and sizes, carry warning labels and are filled with recycled materials enclosed in flame retardant bags.
IATA Out of Gauge (OOG) Test Items
Out of Gauge items represent the diversity of odd sized non-standard items that passengers’ often want to check-in to their flights.
The CHS IATA reference range of OOG test items covers the luggage that can be expected at airport check-in desks and includes items such as sporting equipment, briefcases, rucksacks, military bags as well as baby seats and prams. These items can be supplied with IATA classification tags that include dimensional information, serial numbers, weight and identification barcoding.
Each test bag can be supplied with a four way numbering and identification protocol:
- High visibility abrasion resistant labels with identification numbering on the front and back faces of the test bags.
- Individually unique barcodes for automatic bag identification can be supplied on the labels as required.
- Optional RFiD identification allowing the bags to be used within a CHS AutoRFiD identification test setup. The CHS AutoRFiD technology delivers a 100% success rate in identifying passing bags whatever their size, orientation or position on the conveyor.
