Pull Out Testing by Abbot Technical Services Limited as an approved on-site Anchor Fixings Tester for construction industry.
We are members of the construction fixings association as an approved tester of Post-Installed Rebar fixings, Scaffold Ties and Remedial Wall-Ties to 320kN Push Pull mechanical stress load levels. Normally, pull out testing is only performed when a problem is detected. Here, the recording of movement under test is less important than detecting the extent of an identified problem.
Pull out mechanical tests are performed to increase the sample size. The same test load stresses and durations are applied. The loads applied are recorded but only record of movement is any failure of the fixing itself. Conducting a larger scale pull out test then gives on-site engineers the data needed to go back to their suppliers and seek rectification of the problem.
At all times you will find Abbot Technical Services a respectful, hard working and knowledgeable partner to your fully reliable on-site push pull testing needs. We do not skimp or flinch from doing what needs to be done to give you the full and truthful results you ask from us as your on-site authority to push pull testing of fixings.
