Implementation of Hollow Core Slab lifting eye tests

Charcon implements Hollow Core Slab lifter testing with a purpose designed mobile test machine.

Charcon are proud to announce the successful design and implementation of a new proof load testing process for all of our lifting pins cast into our Hollow core Slab product range. The new test process will be carried out with an innovative, specially designed, mobile test machine which will apply a pre calculated proof load to every lifting pin cast into the products during the manufacturing process.

Following Charcon’s commitment to on-going efficiency and safety improvements in both our manufacturing and installation businesses, we felt that an improved testing process would further increase both our confidence and that of our clients in the integrity of the lifters.  The new process also gives us full traceability of proof testing of every lifter which we believe is a first in the UK hollow core market.
