Testing and Certification
Testing and Certification - CertiSafe®, Periodic Inspections
Safety, efficiency and a long lifespan for our products are considered important at Holmatro. In order to achieve these goals we work according to the Holmatro inspection procedures or CertiSafe®. With the Holmatro CertiSafe® inspection procedure you are assured that your tools will be tested and certified annually in the most rigorous fashion.
CertiSafe® is an annual service, fully aligned with (and in the area of lifting even more comprehensive than) the Guidelines Work Equipment 2009/104/EG and HSE LOLER 1998 (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations). Unique to CertiSafe® is its dynamic method of testing. Dynamic testing by Holmatro means, amongst other things, testing your cylinders across the entire stroke with the use of a contra cylinder. We also simulate the maximum use situation (105% of the capacity) of your tools, so that the over-pressure relief protection is tested. Hidden defects are identified sooner with this method of testing, with an eye to preventing unnecessary breakdowns and dangerous situations on the work floor.

In order to only interrupt your activities as briefly as possible Holmatro offers the possibility of having your tools tested and certified on location. The Holmatro CertiSafe® service buses provide service nationally and are fully equipped with NMI certified test benches and tools. Our service engineers also provide advice on the use of the tools and preventive maintenance to avoid dangerous situations.
With CertiSafe® you can be sure that your equipment will work correctly and safely.
