Timetabled Live Demonstrations:

The Kier Transformation Through Innovation Demonstration Zone

Kier will be demonstrating several new products in its Transformation Through Innovation zone. The company will be offering tours of this area at the following times on day one:

*11:00

*12:30

*14:00

*16:30

Please note that each tour will have a limited number of spaces for safety reasons and you will need to pre-register for this at the main Kier stand in the exhibition hall to collect your. A Kier branded bus will be available to take you out to the demonstration area but anyone that hasn’t pre-registered and doesn’t have a ticket will be refused entry.

Crash Demonstrations:

* 15:30

Slow speed 20mph small car, head-on impact into a passive safe standard 4m sign post

Reason for Demo: There is a lack of understanding in the industry of the way aluminium poles perform when impacted at slow speeds in an urban environment. This should help inform the industry and dispel any myths surrounding the use of passive safe structures in built-up areas. Although slow speed tests for certification are mandatory, this demonstration has never been performed in public before.

Expectation: Pole will stop the vehicle, replicating slow speed impact in urban environment.

High speed 60mph small car, head on impact into a passive safe 12m hinged lamp-post

Reason for Demo: To show that hinged columns can be passive safe.

Expectation: Column will shear at the base allowing the car to continue without a significant reduction in speed and more importantly very little intrusion into the cabin of the vehicle.

End of Day One: 17:30

The Kier Transformation Through Innovation Demonstration Zone

Kier will be demonstrating several new products in its Transformation Through Innovation zone. The company will be offering tours of this area at the following times on day two:

*11:00

*12:30

*14:00

As with day one, each tour will be available to a limited number of visitors for safety reasons and you will need to pre-register for this at the main Kier stand in the exhibition hall.

 

Crash Demonstrations:

* 14:30

High speed 60mph with small car, head on impact into a 10m steel lighting column installed with standard, planted root section

Expectation: The vehicle will come to an immediate halt resulting in significant damage/ intrusion with the probability that any occupants would have experienced serious injury or death.
 
High speed 60mph with small car, head on impact into a passive safe 10m lighting column, installed with standard, planted root section

Reason for Demo: To demonstrate the level of intrusion and subsequent death/ serious injury that can result from impacting a steel column as opposed to the significantly reduced risk resulting from impacting into a passive column.

Expectation: Column will begin to fold upon impact before shearing at the base allowing car to continue without a significant reduction in speed and more importantly very little intrusion into the cabin of the vehicle.

 

Close of Event: 16:00
