Eye bolts and abseil points are widely used across a variety of applications, from retail merchandising and lighting to rope access maintenance and window cleaning. it is therefore imperative that regular testing procedures are adhered to that ensures these systems comply with current legislation and are deemed appropriate for use.
Due to the loads that can be imparted on these solutions, it is critical that testing is performed to industry recognised standards. For eye bolts the standard is BS 7883:2005, and testing should occur at least every 12 months. For class A1 categorised anchor points testing should be conducted in accordance with BS EN795 standards and the testing frequency is increased to every 6 months.
As well as testing the system to award compliance, our specialist teams will also conduct inspections to identify any damage and perform preventative maintenance on the system to ensure its longevity.
