Auto Frame Damage Repair Requires the Highest Level of Technical Skill
Accurate repair of frame damage is a specialized science that requires the highest level of technical skill and training. Our experienced automotive body technicians thoroughly analyze all points of impact to assess both visible and hidden damage to the chassis of your vehicle. While direct contact damage such as holes, tears, scratches, and gauges in the panels of your vehicle account may for approximately 10% of the damage in moderate to severe impacts, the majority of damage may be indirect, affecting the structural supports such as the frame and underbody components. Due to specially designed crumple zones designed to absorb the energy of impact (instead of transferring it to the passengers within the vehicle), the level of structural damage that modern vehicles can suffer in even low-speed collisions can be quite surprising. In addition, multiple points of impact affect nearly half of all vehicles involved in collisions and can result in complex damage that requires the most sophisticated equipment for a reliable diagnosis and repair. If your vehicle has been involved in an accident, be sure you are choosing an auto repair shop that can identify all visible and hidden damage so that your vehicle can be restored properly.
At Performance Collision, we pride ourselves in offering the most advanced frame straightening equipment. We have invested in computerized, laser-guided equipment capable of providing the massive hydraulic torque and digital accuracy required to restore your car, truck, van, or SUV to OEM specifications. Our technicians can return your vehicle’s structural components back to their original shape and performance capabilities with precision and efficiency. Our workmanship is guaranteed so you can enjoy peace of mind as you head back out on the road with the same handling and safety profile you enjoyed prior to the impact.
Chief Velocity Laser Frame Measuring System – Precision Collision Repair
It is virtually impossible to return a vehicle to its exact factory specification without computerized digital analysis and correction. Performance Collision uses Chief’s Velocity Laser Frame Measuring System to analyze the comprehensive dimensional condition of damaged structural components before, during, and after repair to ensure that alignment damage has been fully corrected and the frame returned to factory specifications. Most insurance companies insist on documentation of collision damage and we are able to provide these records in the form of a printed damage report prior to service, as well as after the frame straightening process has been completed.
How Does Computerized Frame Straightening Work?
Three-dimensional triangulation via revolving mirrors and optical laser beams is used to produce live computerized diagrams indicating the position of 16 reference points throughout the restoration process to identify targets from multiple angles and provide unequaled precision frame repair and alignment. This system enables us to determine precisely how far each component is out of alignment in every direction so that it can be restored with precision to its original factory condition. We are able to accommodate all makes and models of foreign and domestic vehicles – even limousines and large fleet vehicles – with this system.
