ONSITE TESTING FOR REBAR AND ANCHORS

Hilti’s onsite tests for post-installed rebar and fastenings

You need to carry out onsite testing for rebar and anchors if you don’t know the load capacity of a base material.

This is if a base material isn’t covered by ETA guidelines or by Hilti technical data – such as when the base material is old or damaged concrete or rock.

Onsite testing calculates the design resistance of a base material and can determine which anchor system is right to use for your installation.

Onsite testing can be carried using a destructive pull-out test or a non-destructive proof load test.

WHEN TO CARRY OUT ONSITE TESTING

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

What do I get after onsite testing

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.
