Pull Out Load Testing

Pull out load testing
Safety secured. Arrange next day testing and certification.

Why have pull out testing?

The purpose of pull out testing is to ensure the correct installation of fixings, confirm they adhere to specific design calculations and requirements, and guarantee safety on site.

Types of pull out testing

Proof load testing is used to confirm the fixing is fit for purpose, which involves applying the maximum design service load required with an additional factor of safety.

Ultimate load (destructive) testing is used to determine the maximum load the anchor bolt can withstand, which involves loading the fixing until failure.

We provide both methods in accordance with ‘BS5080-1:1993 Structural fixings in concrete and masonry – Method of test for tensile loading’, ‘BS8539:2012 Code of practice for the selection and installation of post-installed anchors in concrete and masonry’ and ‘CFA guidance note: Procedure for Site Testing Construction Fixings – 2012’.
