Repairs and Testing 

We repair and service most leading brands of lifting equipment in-house, quickly, and efficiently, offering a substitute service whilst your repairs or tests are being carried out, so no unnecessary ‘down time’ is experienced.

Our In-house workshops have complete test rigs and full test facilities including:


70 Tonne horizontal tensile test machine


5 Tonne counterbalanced load multiplier rig


100 Tonne hydraulic test rig

We thoroughly examine lifting equipment for defects before initial use, unless it has an ‘EC Declaration of Conformity’ of less than one year old and was not assembled on site.  If it was, it must be checked to establish correct and safe assembly.



Proof testing is essential for all types of lifting equipment from chain blocks, gantries, hoists and jacks, right through to access platforms, trolley jacks and winches, to be tested as part of their maintenance and repair programme. This ensures their structural integrity and compliance with government regulations.

All repairs are carried out in accordance with LOLER & PUWER legislation by one of our highly trained, competent engineers who will issue a valid LOLER test certificate upon successful completion.


Shock Load 

Shock Load Testing is performed on web sling tests to determine ‘shock load’. This is the minimum amount of force exerted on a material sling that causes it to snap and is considerably more than just an increase in tension.  Every piece of equipment has a shock load capacity that is clearly printed on it, however, over time degradation can occur, which is why routine testing is imperative.

The required safety specifications are in place for your safety, knowing the shock load of your lifting equipment is a matter of life or death.
