Safety is the number one concern on today’s scaffolding and construction sites. Site operators are no doubt doing all they can to protect workers and the public from injury. Pull testers can play a vital role in helping achieve this.
What are pull tests?
Simply put, pull tests are tests undertaken on the fixings of temporary structures or buildings to determine the pullout resistance of a fastener. The test is carried out by attaching a pull tester (also known as anchor tester) to a bolt, screw, anchor or fixing and then measuring the fixings maximum stress level. The result allows users to easily determine how strong and secure an entire project is and helps to diagnose the weak points that require attention.
Why are pull tests important?
The correct selection, installation, and testing of fixings is critical to keep people safe and ensure businesses comply with the latest health and safety regulations. There are many factors that can impact the strength of your fastening, and a visual test just isn’t enough to ensure your bolts or screws haven’t been impacted by poor weather or inadequate installation.
Unfortunately, it only takes a few bolts to be unchecked and un-fit for purpose for an entire structure to collapse. A pull tester is a quick and easy solution to deploy that offers reassurance your fastenings can handle the proposed loads.
This is an important process. The conclusion: you need a pull testing kit you can trust.
