Manufacturing a UNICAT vehicle easily can be compared with building a house or a boat. Apart from the purely technical problems, there are the requirements raised by your personal home preferences and lifestyle. In mobile use, the solutions often must withstand extreme conditions.
This calls for professional know-how in a variety of fields:
vehicle manufacturing, mechanical engineering, vibration analysis, thermodynamics, hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical engineering, insulation, heating, sanitary engineering, water treatment, interior design, cabinet-making, etc.
Expertise in all these areas is the prerequisite for the high quality standard of UNICAT. However, should no satisfactory solutions be available in these areas to date, professionalism also means creating designs of one's own and developing them till ready for use. This often may require creating intricate and expensive special tools and parts. But it's our ambition to provide perfect solutions to details.
Examples of such details are the seals of lids, hatches and doors, the fitting of burglar-proof locks, the use of insulating laminated glass windows with no cold spots, selective reinforcement to prevent cracks in the shelter structure, special torsion-free floor units which save additional weight and keep the centre of gravity low.
Our view of professionalism, of course, also includes the use of the best materials—including many parts used by shipbuilders and plant constructors. Frequently, the equipment and materials we buy in are further refined by us and, before they get installed, are tested for their operation, reliability and safety, and optimised. Naturally, our more than twenty years of experience in purchasing materials greatly benefit us.
We are well aware of all the strengths, weaknesses and peculiarities of the suppliers and can make the optimum choice. By maintaining intense contact with our customers we also know what works in the field. This practical feedback enters into every new development.
Before we deliver your finished UNICAT vehicle we put it through extensive tests once again—some of the most rigorous ones we can come up with—under real-life operating conditions. And since our extremely high quality standards have stood the test of time, we can offer you exceptional warranties on all work performed by UNICAT.
