Pull Out Testing
Why Conduct Pull Out Testing?
Do your fixings need annual testing? Will the anchors take the proposed loads? Does the fall arrest system meet current legislation? – these are just some of the questions asked. Our pull out testing service will provide the answers.
Normally performed to establish the load capacity strength of fixings that have been installed or fitted into walls, slabs, soffits etc, our pull out tests are vital for commercial buildings, railways, airports or domestic situations.
There are many factors that can affect the strength and durability of eyebolts, anchor bolts, scaffold ties, stud anchors, resin bolts and safety wires, so it is vital that they are regularly checked tested and certified. This is especially the case when visual inspection is just not enough. This is where Pull Out Testing UK comes in.
Having worked in the industry for more than 33 years, our highly skilled and professional team utilise their vast experience to provide you with the very best pull out and shear testing services.
How It Works
Pull out testing involves attaching a suitable test rig to the bolt, screw, anchor or fixing. This is then put under tension to the designed stress load level to determine how strong and secure the fixing is.
This type of service enables potential early diagnosis of underlying problems and our engineers can offer honest and impartial technical advice in the event of a failure should this occur.
Here at Pull Out Testing UK, we also provide extensive reports to show whether the fixings have passed or failed the required stress load levels. These levels should be specified by the designer before you begin installation, so you have a conclusive idea as to the working capacities of your fixings.
