Poor quality steel is a significant building issue and the potential for sourcing steel batches with inconsistent properties is high. 

Our IANZ accredited Structural Testing Laboratory has significant capabilities in steel testing, allowing us to evaluate load and structural reliability of steel structures.

Our Structural Testing Laboratory in Wellington and [how many] material experts can offer a complete suite of material testing services that will allow you to meet the compliance with all of the AS/ANZ referenced standards, namely:

  • ISO 6892-1:2016 Metallic materials – Tensile testing –
  • Method of test at room temperature, ISO 15630-1 2010(E)
  • Steel for the reinforcing and pre-stressing of concrete –
  • Test Methods and AS 1391:2007 Metallic materials –
  • Tensile testing at ambient temperature).

Our accreditation is valid for conventional and seismic reinforcing bars ranging in size from 6 to 50mm in diameter. We also offer the complete suite of testing for reinforcing material as detailed in AS/NZS 4671:2001 – for example, bending testing and geometric checks.
