Equipment Inspection & Certification
Inspections are completed to evaluate equipment structural condition and upon completion of any required repairs the structural suitability of the equipment for continued service is validated through issuance of an Engineering Certificate.
Stability and Proof Load Testing
Stability load testing is completed to evaluate overturning resistance of mobile cranes or aerial lifts to manufacturer and standardized limits. Proof load testing in contrast is typically a static pull test and considered complimentary testing to provide lower level of structural assurances than what has already been established through engineering calculations.
