Lifting machines & Equipment Testing

All Lifting machines must be load tested (performance tested) at intervals not exceeding 12 months.

Periodic examination and/or load testing can be carried out at our facility or on site by our qualified inspectors. We offer proof load test capability of 35 tons.

Our inspectors can test and certify your lifting machines and equipment to meet the requirements of LOLER, 1998 (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations).
