Servicing & Inspection

It is important that you ensure that your applications, systems and equipment is properly maintained for a number of reasons. Given the heavy loads and the complex manor in which it operates, any faults can be extremely dangerous and can cause significant injuries and damage if something was to go wrong which regrettably is both a time consuming and very costly. 
Because of this is it is worthwhile and important (as well as a legal obligation) to ensure your equipment is regularly inspected and maintained. Whilst putting safety first and adhering to all regulations you will reap the rewards of properly maintained equipment both financially and that of the safety of your employees.

Load Testing

Lifting equipment, by its very nature, includes potentially dangerous complex pieces of equipment. Lifting equipment is used and responsible for safe moving both small and very large, light and heavy loads it is important that you know their safe limits of operation before both using them and throughout their life to ensure they are fit for safe use at all times.
An application, system or item of equipment is ‘Load Tested’ whereby it is put under stress to simulate how it would respond under load. Such load testing verifies the safe working maximum capacity. Such stress testing scrutinises this requirement by deliberately testing lifting equipment to a significant amount of load over the specified capacity.
This testing allows our customers to understand the safe operating limits of their equipment, applications and systems, in addition to providing a means by which future proof testing of their assets can be identified in order to and avoid potential hazards and accidents
