Safe and successful lifting operations depend, in large part, on the continued safety of the lifting equipment and accessories that are used. Failures in this kind of equipment can result in significant or even fatal injuries. Where testing is deemed necessary, it may not need be undertaken at every thorough examination. The need for, and nature of, testing should be based on an assessment of risk - taking account of information from the manufacturer and other relevant information - as determined by the competent person.

ONSITE LOAD TESTING

Our mobile technicians are able to plan and conduct load tests on various types of equipment at your site. We can use fixed weights or if this is not practical can use our fleet of Water Weights and calibrated load cells. We design a load testing procedure to suit your specific requirements which is supported by a full risk and method statement. We can also offer eyebolt and lifting ring testing and inspection.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING

After a load test there will often be a requirement for some form of Non-Destructive Testing. We are able to offer Dye penetrant inspection and Magnetic Particle Inspection. If more in depth/theoretical analysis is required, we can offer full finite element analysis (FEA).

ONLINE TEST RESULTS

We will upload test results to our online portal where you can access and download the latest certificate or test results. This also ensures your equipment is recalled and any testing does not become overdue.

DRIVING INNOVATION IN THE LOAD TESTING INDUSTRY

LATEST TEST EQUIPMENT

We use the latest calibrated test equipment ensuring we can test efficiently and accurately. Our main goal is to minimise your down time and ensure the equipment is tested and results available in the shortest possible time.

EXPERIENCED ENGINEERS

Our engineers have tested 1000’s of assets and do so on a regular basis. They are not only trained test engineers, but we have the ability to provide onsite repairs and maintenance. This allows us to provide a true end to end service.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING

We are able to offer Dye penetrant inspection and Magnetic Particle Inspection. This will often prevent the need for an additional contractor to attend site, further reducing costs and down time.

ONLINE TEST INFORMATION

Manage your asset certification and test results through our industry leading online portal. Just enter your tool or asset number and view all information relating to your asset.

Let us help you plan and conduct your next required load test. We have test equipment on fleet and our mobile technicians can provide national coverage including offshore installations and wind farms. A full risk and method statement is given for prior approval before any tests are carried out. Contact us today for a visit from one of our technical representatives.
