Decades of expertise in load and stress testing
It’s important to know the limits of cranes when they are installed, as they are responsible for lifting a lot of weight. This is where load testing and stress testing are invaluable.
The process involves applying a specified load to an item of equipment in order to assess and verify its strength. The results of the test will reveal the percentage of the working load limit (WLL) or safe working load (SWL) that the equipment in question has been designed to withstand.
When do I require a proof load test?
As soon as an item of equipment has been manufactured
Once the equipment has been installed
After repair, modification or refurbishment of the equipment
Following an incident involving the equipment
Periodically to comply with British and European Standards
As part of a Thorough Examination performed by a competent person
Meeting LOLER 1998, British and European Standards
