The complexity of testing requirements for many types of anchorages and fasteners, such as post-installed concrete anchors, has increased significantly over the past decade to achieve safer products and more consistent performance. Well-designed testing systems are needed to properly perform these tests, and expertise is needed to properly evaluate the results. Dynamic loading of fasteners and dynamic control of the base material are challenging requirements that few laboratories can perform.
CTLGroup’s unique combination of structural and materials expertise, as well as our ability to design and implement complex loading systems, creates an ideal solution for anchorage and fastener testing needs. We have applied our expertise in the testing and evaluation of various anchorage and fastener types, from self-tapping steel screws to adhesive anchors for concrete attachment. Our team can help you with your product development, product qualification, troubleshooting, and failure analysis needs.
