The research centre is now the only laboratory in Spain accredited as per ISO 17025.
After a successful audit carried out by ENAC, TECNALIA now has a full range of scaffold tests, and has become the only laboratory in Spain accredited as per ISO 17025.
With the “Type 1 Test to verify significant behaviour of load-displacement” in accordance with UNE EN 12810 and UNE EN 12811 standards, TECNALIA responds to clients’ demands and offers scaffold manufacturers state-of-the-art facilities.
TECNALIA also has the technical knowledge required to help its clients validate their preliminary designs and scenarios for finite element simulation by means of testing.
Mechanical strength requirements
This type of test enables the verification of mechanical strength requirements on real scaffold samples to ensure the safety of operators working on building sites.
