Ensuring High-Quality as per the Global ROPS/ FOPS Testing Standards

Testing Services

TOP ROPS destructive testing capability and facility is one of the largest in the region and allows ROPS, FOPS ,TOPS & OPS testing for almost any type & size of OEM machine.

At TopROPS, we are ROPS,FOPS,TOP & OPS testing specialists with extensive knowledge of this industry and performs protective structure testing to meet requirements for: International Organization for Standardization (ISO), SAE International, Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), and Mining Regulations in Canada.

All ROPS, FOPS, TOPS and OPG products MUST be destructively tested and certified in accordance with the following standards:

Cabin and canopy ROPS to ISO 3471:2008

Cabin and canopy FOPS to ISO 3449:2005 (Level 1 or 2)

Excavator ROPS to ISO12117.2:2008

Excavator OPG to ISO10262:1998

Non-swing machines and forestry ISO 8082-1 ROPS

Swing-type machines and forestry ISO 8082-2 ROPS

Machines of non-swing-type and earth-moving ISO 3471 ROPS

Construction excavators of around 6 tonnes ISO 12117-2 ROPS

Seat Belt Anchorage ISO 6683

ROPS-Roll Over Protective Structure.

ISO 3471:2008 ROPS for Earth-Moving Machinery: specifies performance requirements for metallic roll-over protective structures (ROPS) for earth-moving machinery, as well as a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the compliance with these requirements by laboratory testing using static loading on a representative specimen.

SAE J1194 ROPS for Wheeled Agricultural Tractors: fulfillment of the intended purpose requires testing as follows: A laboratory test, under repeatable and controlled loading, to permit analysis of the ROPS for compliance with the performance requirements of this SAE Standard.

SAE J2194 ROPS for Wheeled Agricultural Tractors: any ROPS meeting the performance requirement of ISO 5700 (Static ROPS Test Standard) or ISO 3463 (Dynamic ROPS Test Standard) meets the performance requirements of this SAE Standard if the ROPS temperature/material and seat belt requirements are also met.

FOPS- Falling Object Protective Structure

Machines that take up forestry and mining jobs should be tough, yet they need some protection from falling debris. 


At TopROPS, we ensure that your machine and operators are safe and can do the job properly.

  • ISO 3449, level 1 and level 2 for a ride on earth moving machines
  • Level 1 includes testing for the safety of small tools, bricks, hand tools, etc.
  • Level 2 includes testing for larger objects falling, such as trees, rocks, heavy objects, etc.
  • Equipment used in demolition, forestry, earth moving, underground construction, and mining need a level 2 FOPS certification
  • ROPS and FOPS protective structures should have a permanent label suggesting what it was tested for and the machine operating weight.
