Load Testing At Rushden Lakes

Testing the anchors at a new cinema complex We were called in to do the load testing at a new cinema complex in Rushden Lakes; fixing anchors had been installed in the auditorium in preparation for overhead air conditioning ducting and they needed to be tested for load capacity. Our Midlands branch visited site and used Hilti HAT 28 to test the integrity of the anchors. We were able to successfully work at height around existing false ceiling supports, the job was completed in a safe and efficient manner and our customer was extremely satisfied with the service provided by D-Drill.
