Proof Load Testing FAQ

Proof load testing is a type of test performed on structures or equipment to verify their load-bearing capacity. The test involves applying a specific load or force to the structure or equipment and measuring how well it performs under that load.

The purpose of proof load testing is to ensure that structures or equipment can withstand the loads or forces they are designed to handle. This helps to prevent accidents, ensure safety, and extend the lifespan of the equipment or structure.

Any structure or equipment that is designed to bear a load, such as cranes, bridges, towers, and buildings, may require proof load testing. Other examples include lifting slings, shackles, and hoists. If you’re unsure if your equipment or structure requires proof load testing, contact a reputable company like Durham Lifting for advice.

Proof load testing helps to ensure the safety and reliability of structures and equipment, which can reduce the risk of accidents and improve overall performance.

It can also help to identify any weaknesses or defects in the structure or equipment, allowing for repairs or improvements to be made before they become a problem.

At Durham Lifting, we prioritize safety and reliability in all of our proof load testing services.

The frequency of proof load testing depends on various factors, such as the type of equipment or structure being tested, its age and condition, and the level of usage. It is typically recommended that proof load testing be performed at least once a year, or more frequently if the equipment or structure is subjected to heavy use or extreme conditions. Durham Lifting can advise you on the appropriate frequency of proof load testing for your equipment or structure.

Booking a proof load testing service with Durham Lifting is easy. You can contact us by phone, email, or through our website to request a quote and schedule a testing date that is convenient for you. Our team will work with you to ensure that your equipment or structure is tested safely and efficiently.
