Finite Element Analysis (FEA) & Brake Testing

To have federal approvals as a second stage manufacturer, we complete exhaustive FEA testing and analysis plus brake testing to ensure your vehicle is safe at the increased GVM.


Finite Element Analysis (FEA), is a computer simulation technique that analyses our GVM upgrade products in great detail to carry out a stress, vibration or heat transfer analysis and many other physical analyses. The FEA combined with brake testing ensures your family are safe and your vehicle is insured once a GVM upgrade has been added to your vehicle.

What can you expect..

We've teamed up with Dobinsons Suspension to ensure optimal on-road and off-road performance while adhering to GVM regulations.


Each component of your upgrade undergoes stringent quality control measures to uphold the highest safety and performance standards.

Carry more - Safely & Legally

The allowable payload on most modern 4WDs seems great on paper, but gets quickly used up when accessories, gear and passengers get loaded in. Remaining under the vehicles Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) can seem almost impossible.

DMW is a recognised Second Stage Manufacturer (SSM) which allows us to develop and federally certify components to increase your vehicle's GVM.

This allows DMW or their authorised dealers to fit GVM kits for a variety of vehicles both Pre and Post Registration.

Maximise your allowable payload without risking your roadworthiness.

Each complete GVM kit has been extensively tested to ensure ADR compliance is maintained.
