About Impact Labs
Our drive to evolve, improve and grow led us to invest in Impact Labs, a one-of-a-kind product development and testing facility tailored to the needs of our clients. By adding these capabilities and bringing them in-house, we became more efficient and effective, and much less reliant on outside factories and other companies for development and testing.
Photo & Sound Room
Check out our team at work as they create and test some famous products as they were being developed!
Our fire room is where we develop and test products to meet fire, electrical and chemical safety requirements.
This important safety device protects lab personnel from toxic fumes, vapors and dust. It also protects against chemical spills, runaway reactions and fires by acting as a physical barrier.
This chamber can create temperatures ranging from -20°F to 284°F, and humidity from 20% R.H. to 98% R.H. In addition to life-testing products, this allows us to simulate the varying conditions in shipping containers during transport.
With microwaves ranging from 700-watts to an 1800-watt commercial unit, we can confirm products may be safely used in virtually any type of microwave, regardless of size or power.
With our own in-house 3D printer, we can make our own prototypes and save critical time during the development phase.
We use this enclosed and ventilated booth as a chemical area or when applying spray paint to prototypes.
Our water room is where we do all of our development and testing with liquids. We can simulate household use with real appliances and conduct saline water testing to confirm corrosion-free compliance.
With a dishwasher in-house, we can ensure that products meet the necessary requirements to be rated “dishwasher safe.”
With our own washer and dryer, we can test fabrics and apparel, and even put other products that might get “accidentally” washed through the harshest testing conditions.
Our water tanks allow us to reproduce underwater demonstrations and test products to ensure IPX water resistance rating (if required).
Ice Block / Boiling Pot
We also subject many products to subfreezing temperatures and boiling water to test climate and condition ratings.
This room is where our QA team thoroughly tests products and ensures they are in compliance with all
With this sphere-spectroradiometer device, we can scientifically measure the brightness of a lighting product.
Universal Testing Machine
This machine allows us to test both compression and tension to a maximum force of 1,100 lbs.
Thermal Imaging Camera
With this camera, we are able to see temperature distribution and note deviations. We can also record core temperatures during the product development and testing phases.
With a video zoom range of 30X-200X and an image acquisition of three million pixels, this device is an essential tool for precision inspections during the QA process.
Miscellaneous Gauges and Tools
We have many other gauges, tools and testing devices. With each new project, we expand our capabilities and equipment.
Our workshop is where we design and build prototypes in-house.
In order to shorten lead times, we maintain a comprehensive array of power and specialty tools that allow us to refine prototypes in-house as well as provide informed feedback to our factories during the development process.
With our 3D printers, advanced equipment and specialty tools, our engineers can create proof-of-concept models and prototypes in-house.
Testing Fixtures and Jigs
Our new and innovative products almost always need special testing in order to substantiate marketing claims. By creating custom testing fixtures and jigs in-house, we are able to conduct such testing as needed.
Photo & Sound Room
This room is where we take product photos and record video demonstrations. It also serves as a dark room for testing our lighting products. Additionally, the room has been soundproofed so that we can
test hearing amplifiers, electronics and other sound-related items.
Photo Booth & Professional Lighting System
Dark Room feature
Soundproofed Room feature
This area serves many purposes and allows for a wide range of tests.
We use our range for high-impact and projectile testing.
This allows us lift up to 500 lbs or suspend heavy objects from the ceiling for various testing.
High Impact Area
Reinforced cement flooring and thick rubber mats allow us to do heavy-weight and high-impact testing.
Drop Testing Area
This area is designed to meet ISTA standards for drop testing individual products (3mm vinyl) and shipping master cartons (12mm stainless steel).
