Metal construction, fastening and joining technology

We conduct technical material analysis and construction-related diagnostics on metallic components and on complete structures within the fields of structural engineering, industrial construction and bridge construction, as well as the analysis of roof and façade designs, heating and sanitary installations, assemblies in mechanical and plant engineering, corrosion protection systems and coatings. Alongside the modern testing technology in our laboratory, we also have numerous non-destructive investigative procedures at our disposal for use on-site. We would be happy to provide manufacturers and downstream processors with support and advice with regard to quality assurance. In addition to this, we are active worldwide in the verification and certification of metal construction products and reinforcement technology.


  • A recognised testing, inspection and certification body in accordance with state building regulations and the EU Construction Products Regulation — Including for reinforcing steel rods/connections, metal construction products, fibres for concrete and the design of steel and aluminium load-bearing structures
  • Damage analysis — Surveying and determining the causes of structural damage, arbitrator’s expert opinions, preservation of evidence, expert reports
  • Accredited metal laboratory — Mechanical and technical testing of reinforcing steel rods and connections, tests on existing steel load-bearing structures, non-destructive testing, microscopy, mobile and stationary metallography, emission spectrometry, corrosion testing, the performance of acceptance tests and the issuing of 3.1 certificates
  • Technical join tests — Verification of suitability for welding
