Load testing

Load testing is performed to determine a systems behaviour under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions. It helps to identify the maximum operating capacity of an application as well as any bottlenecks and determine which element is causing degradation. When the load placed on the system is raised beyond normal usage patterns, in order to test the systems response at usually high or peak loads, it is known as stress testing. The load is usually so great that error conditions are the expected result, although no clear boundary exists when an activity ceases to be a load test and becomes a stress test.

Our facilities enable us to test all kinds of equipment,overhead cranes, gantrys, lifting beams, chains, slings, jacks etc. We also offer test certificates for any equipment tested and reports on any faults and defects.
