With FB Crane Builders being registered as a Lifting Machinery Entity (LME) together with our certified Lifting Machinery Inspectors (LMI’s) we are legally the right company to perform load tests on all your Lifting Driven Machinery, according to the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act. With our certified and calibrated solid weights, water bags and engineering expertise no load test is too difficult for us to achieve. In fact, FB Cranes can perform load test from 250kg up to 150 tones.
Your crane needs to be tested...
- On an annual basis to comply with SANS standards. However, SANS also specifies that if a Lifting Machinery Inspector deems the Crane as old or in a poor condition, more regular tests need to be performed.
- New Overhead crane systems SHALL be load tested prior to being placed into service.
- Existing crane system SHALL be load tested after modification or re-rating
- After a major component has been replaced or repaired on the load path of the crane
