One of the methods fall protections anchors are installed by means of adhesive fasteners which typically required to be periodically load tested to confirm the integrity and bonding strength of the fasteners.
Also, horizontal and vertical lifeline systems with swaged and swageless terminals normally require proof load testing of the terminals at intervals specified by the manufacturer of the system or the design engineer. We offer a non-destructive testing program designed to tests the adhesive fasteners and HLL terminals to the required specifications.
Under the requirements of CSA Z91, CSA Z271, and Ontario MOL Guidelines all roof anchors or any other component of the façade access system post installed by means of chemical adhesive anchors are required to be load tested at the time of installation and at a minimum once every five years or as recommended by the manufacturer and design specifications.
Our engineers prepare a comprehensive test report where all our field observations are detailed. As a service to our clients, we maintain an electronic back up of all reports and drawings accessible to our clients at any time at no additional cost.
Our technical advisors are highly trained and equipped to perform the load tests utilizing the latest calibrated test instruments. They have an in depth understating of the Regulations and CSA standards and how they apply to specific types of access systems.
