ONSITE TESTING

Analysis of Hilti post-installed anchors, rebar, and cast-in channel

Onsite testing can be used for destructive pull-out tests or a non-destructive proof load tests.

Use it to calculate the design resistance of a base material and determine which anchor system is right to use for your application, or have peace of mind that your connections have been installed safely.

Onsite anchor testing

The testing of post-installed anchors, rebar and cast-in channel is crucial to ensuring safe delivery of your projects. Tests may be required for the following reasons:

  • Know the resistance of the base materials you’re working with, particularly when you’re dealing with existing concrete, natural stone, refractory stone, porous materials or wood.
  • Verifying the design loads of the connection.
  • Checking the correct installation.

WHEN TO CARRY OUT ONSITE TESTING

You can use onsite testing in the design phase and after installation of a fastening system.

Onsite testing during design phase

During the design phase – determine the resistance of a base material and which fastening system to use.

Onsite testing after installation

After installing anchor systems – determine quality and safety. This can be required by building owners or to ensure compliance to local guidelines.

WHAT DO I GET AFTER ONSITE TESTING

Hilti onsite testing report

We give you a detailed written test report and evaluation report, with technical data from the test.

Other benefits of onsite testing:

  • Be sure that the load resistance and quality of a design is OK.
  • Determine the resistance values of an unknown base material or of base materials, which are different and not in the original approval document.
  • Check the quality and safety of post-installed rebar and fastening systems after installation, by testing part of the installation.
