Experienced in lifting equipment and crane load 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. 


Crane load testing should only be carried out by experienced teams to make sure it’s completed properly and safely. After all, it isn’t only essential for protecting your worksite, but it’s a complicated procedure that requires skill, expertise, and an in-depth understanding of the relevant compliance standards and regulations.

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.
