Adhesive and Mechanically Installed Anchor Bolt Testing

Post-installed anchors, such as adhesive and mechanically installed anchors, can be critical building components, and are subject to the requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) Special Inspections. Load testing of these anchors may be requested for a number of reasons. Tests can be performed to verify installation methods or determine the capacity of various anchor configurations.

Anchor testing typically requires patience to oversee a timed loading process, monitoring equipment, and knowledge about testing attachments and methods. ECS has successfully tested mechanical and chemical anchors, chemically bonded all-thread and reinforcing steel, and ground/soil installed anchors. We have tested anchors installed in masonry, concrete and stone. We’ve tested at grade, at the bottom of a foundation and at the top of the building off a scaffold platform.
