Inspecting your hoisting and lifting equipment is very important, but so is your operational continuity. To ensure that one is not at the expense of the other, Van Gool has a fully-equipped mobile testing unit to carry out on-site inspections. This minimises waiting time and ensures that you can quickly resume work. The tests and inspections carried out by our certified EKH inspectors in this test unit comply with all legal requirements and safety regulations. Are you interested? Fill in the application form or contact us for some no-obligation advice!
Our mobile testing unit has advanced equipment to visually inspect and test hoisting and lifting equipment. The unit, which is transported in a truck, has a large tensile testing machine with a capacity of 25 tonnes for chains, plate clamps and eye bolts, among other things, and a smaller tensile testing machine with a capacity of 10 tonnes for hoists and magnets. The mobile workshop also has a compression testing machine with a capacity of 50 tonnes for rack jacks and bottle jacks, among other things. The mobile unit can be placed anywhere (inside) as it only takes up an area of 10 by 7.5 metres!
Regular inspection and testing of your equipment ensures that your people can work safely. That's why we not only do periodic inspections and reinspections, but all our equipment, from top brands such as Straightpoint and Crosby, is thoroughly checked after each rental period. Nothing leaves our premises without a safety certificate. We have a NEN-EN-ISO 9001, SCC* and EKH (Approved Inspection Company for Hoisting and Lifting Equipment) certification and are a member of the Metaalunie. In short, we do everything to guarantee the safety of your employees and your hoisting and lifting equipment!
