Read along to find out more about the latest Anchor Testing Project that we completed for our special clients; Hospitality […]
Upon arrival onto site we proceeded to view the location required for the anchors to be tested that were holding up an existing monorail. It was soon clear upon inspection that it was not possible to test the anchors individually as these anchors had a nut with multiple washers behind the bracket and against the ceiling.
CSI came to a conclusion that the testing would still be possible through a fabricated bracket that would allow all four anchors be tested at the same time with a combined force. (So 5.5kN x 4= 22kN).
16 brackets were tested on the 10th floor.
CSI extended the existing anchors with a coupler through the fabricated bracket. Then attached a bridge to the bracket, attached the RAM against the bridge and used the bridge setup up to the ceiling past the anchors to perform the pull test.
