Structural Fixing Testing

Load testing of fixings, anchors, ties, studs, rebar and structural components is required to prove the safe working load. Pull out testing is normally performed to establish how strong the fixings are between a typical fixing and concrete and many other securing materials. Even though materials used for bonding may be different, the actual testing principles remain the same for all types of fixings. 

Admaterials offers a comprehensive range of lift beam fixing and general pull testing services. On-site testing can be carried out up to a proof load of 50 ton with a displacement measurement accuracy up to 0.01mm. The test is based on BS 5080-1. 

Admaterials can undertake lift beam & pull-out testing across a number of situation, including but not limited to: 

  • Bolt,
  • Anchor bolt,
  • Eyes bolt,
  • Rebar,
  • Lifting beam,
  • Lifting hook.
