Dedicated 158 tonne test bed at our Auckland premises for accurate testing

At Chain and Rigging we have a dedicated 158 tonne test bed at our Auckland premises that can be used for testing a wide range of lifting equipment.

This test bed allows us to carry out accurate testing to high levels to re-certify any equipment you already own from wire ropes and lifting chains to quick hitch attachments. It can also be used to carry out proof load testing before you use any lifting equipment to ensure it is up to the job.

Our team can also perform destruction tests as required.
