BOCA RATON, FL, August 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Travelpro, the original inventor of Rollaboard luggage and a market leader in innovative luggage design has created a state-of-the-art testing facility at their Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters to ensure the highest quality luggage for flight crews and frequent travelers.
Travelpro's in-house testing team conducts a full range of qualification protocols across all their luggage brands. It is designed to support all the performance testing needs of their rigorous Product Design and Development process.
"Our testing facility further ensures our continued commitment to providing the finest, most durable luggage worldwide," said Scott Applebee, Vice President of Marketing for the Travelpro family of brands. "When we offer a comprehensive warranty on our bags, it means we've thoroughly and rigorously tested each product to our demanding testing standards. If a bag fails even a single test, it is sent back to the factory for improvements and then tested again, until all tests are passed."
This commitment to quality through product testing has spanned over two decades, since the days when Northwest Airlines pilot, Robert Plath, invented the original Rollaboard luggage in 1987 and founded Travelpro. Today, Travelpro has continued to grow its reputation of innovation, style and durability by ensuring that its products meet or exceed testing standards throughout the product life cycle.
Multiple, professionally designed industry leading tests are applied to Travelpro products to guarantee state-of-the-art workmanship and quality of materials. The Wheel Tester thoroughly tests luggage wheels to provide a smooth and effortless roll with long-term reliability. Extension Handle Testing subjects the retractable handles to 10,000 up and down movements to verify its reliability during repeated use. The Zipper Test activates outer and interior zippers thousands of times to replicate 'real-world' usage over the life of the bag. .
Fabrics are tested for seam strength, resistance to wear and tear, color consistency under different lighting conditions and color stability under wet and dry conditions. Each test is monitored and recorded by quality verification testers. .
The process doesn't stop there. Throughout the life of a product line, Travelpro will randomly select bags for testing to ensure they continue to maintain the same level of quality over time. Thanks to this focus on quality through constant testing, Travelpro luggage lasts longer, maintaining customer loyalty.
