Quality control of sporting and fitness equipment is especially important when it comes to safety. InTouch has years of experience with product inspection of home and commercial use exercise equipment, skates, lawn darts, sports balls, protective equipment and pads, helmets, camping equipment, sunglasses, swimming aids, scooters and bicycles.
Sporting, exercise and recreational equipment products require close attention to quality as these products are often operated either at high speeds or under heavy loads. Due to this, InTouch auditors evaluate these products thoroughly for structural integrity and proper function. All client provided specifications and design files are used on-site at the factory to verify weld locations and integrity, as well as proper hardware installation.
Bicycles and scooters are subjected to a wide range of functional tests to ensure smooth operation of all drive-train components (sprockets, gears, chains, dérailleur), both while static and during real-world ride testing while the product is under load.
If you manage a brand, retail operation, or have clients that are relying on you to provide a quality product in every shipment then do not settle for inspection companies who use untrained and underpaid local inspectors.
InTouch QA teams are trained and our inspectors often have an engineering background. We’ll make sure you have the right team for the job and that your products are getting evaluated carefully and with high regard for product quality.
