Hydrajaws Scaffold Tester
TG4:19The National Access & Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) is the trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK. 
The NASC Guidance Note 'TG4:19 - Anchorage Systems for Scaffolding' sets out requirements for two types of test:
- PRELIMINARY TESTS of scaffold anchors - to check the suitability and allowable loads of an anchor type in a particular base material 
- PROOF TESTS - sample tests to check that anchors have been installed correctly – to be carried out on all jobs.
The TG4:19 describes a proof Load testing requirement is for a tensile test of 1.5 x the design load. For heavy duty ties with a capacity of 12.2kN this means a test load of 18.3kN.
Download the TG4:19 from the NASC site here.
The Hydrajaws M2000 Scaffold Tie Tester kit will test all types of anchor most commonly used for anchoring scaffold ties up to a maximum tensile load of 25kN.
Adaptors include a standard Bolt Test Adaptor, M16 Threaded Stud Adaptor and M12 Ringbolt Adaptor Clevis which means a wide range of fixings can be tested.
