TESTING

RSFS conducts performance tests on the piles and anchors we install. The performance test provides information to determine if the piles or anchors can withstand the load capacity they were designed for. These tests are measured in compression, tension and/or lateral loads. Load tests can be performed at different stages of the construction. In some cases, these tests are performed at the beginning of the construction phase to determine the capacity the piles or anchors can withstand. Tests are also performed at the end of the construction phase to verify that the anchor or piles can withstand 130-250% of the load capacity design. RSFS has all the equipment readily available to conduct any type of load test to its maximum capacities.
