As architects and engineers continue to push the boundaries in construction and civil engineering, building materials and assembly performance testing is an essential part of ensuring that buildings carry out their functions properly & comply with relevant Building Regulations.
BS EN provides site testing service for concrete, non- destructive testing and in-situ soil testing to ensure adherence to standards.
BS EN offers a comprehensive non- destructive testing service including:
- Visual inspection
- Schmidt/rebound hammer test
- Penetration resistance or Windsor probe test Covermeter testing
- Strain measurement
- Initial surface absorption
- Ultrasonic pulse velocity testing
To complement our site services work, BS EN also offers a range of specialist services including:
- Structural investigation
- Carbonation depth measurement
The large structure elements i.e. large pilecap/foundation, large column, transfer floor slab, transfer beam etc. requires attention of heat of hydration in order to ensure durability of concrete. We are equipped with facilities and competent personnel in the following services:
- Hot-box test
- In-situ installation and auto-logging of concrete temperature
BSEN provides in-situ soil testing:
- Plate loading test
- In-situ density by sand replacement method In-situ CBR test
- Mackintosh Probe test
- Inclinometer, Settlement Marker, Tilt Meter, Piezometer
- Noise Monitoring
- Vibration Monitoring
- Deflection Monitoring
- Tell - Tales Crack Monitoring
Loading testing of fixings, anchors, ties, studs, rebar and structural components is required to prove the safe working load. Pull-out testing is normally performed to establish how strong the fixings are between a typical fixing and concrete and many other securing materials. Even though materials are used for bonding may be different, the actual testing principles remain the same fo all types of fixings.
BSEN offers a comprehensive range of general pull testing services. On-site testing can be carried out up to a proof load of 50 ton with a displacement accuracy up to 0.01mm.
BSEN can undertake pull-out testing from many scenarios, including but not limited to:
- Anchor bolt
- Eye bolt
- Lift beam
- Lift hook
