All load testing to the relevant British Standards has been, and continues to be independently carried out by Lloyds British.
Load Testing SafeStand® Access Systems:
SafeStand® systems were tested by Lloyds British to BS 1139 Part 4 1982; they were subsequently found to have exceeded this requirement.
In all a load of 5000kg (5 tonne) was applied to both the 1200 system (utilising the diagonal brace) and the 800 system at maximum extensions. This resulted in a load on each stand of 2500kg (2.5 tonne) which when factored by a safety factor of 2.5, as required by BS 1139, each stand has been given a SWL (safe working load) of 1000kg (1 tonne) and have been issued with a Lloyds British stamp of approval.
Handrail Testing SafeStand® Systems:
In addition the SafeStand® Systems were tested for compliance to BS EN 13374: 2004, Temporary Edge Protection Systems, class A. Again this testing was independently carried out by Lloyds British. The testing produced results that demonstrated that the SafeStand® handrails could take loads of more than three times the requirement of the above British Standard. Lloyds British stated that the SafeStand® system surpasses all current requirements and, subject to specification conformity, the system was issued with a Lloyds British stamp of approval.
SureStand® Access Systems:
Like the SafeStand® Systems, SureStand® was independently tested by Lloyds British and again surpassed the requirements of all current British Standards.
