Inspection Work 
R & G were contacted by one of our customers to carry out thorough inspection of their lifting equipment. This included large endless round slings and webbing slings.


Beam Testing 
Recent proof load testing carried out for a local fabrication company on various lifting beams.


Calibrated Load Testing 
One of our clients required proof load testing to be carried out on fixed ceiling terminals in Warwick. All 8 fixings took a suspended load of 300kgs using our calibrated hand test weights.


Recent Load Testing Work
R&G Marine were contracted in to carry out testing work on newly installed lighting bars at a newly refurbished Theatre in London. The testing was to prove that all the fixings, brackets and bars could hold a loading of 60kgs every linear metre.


Stainless Steel Wire Rope Balustrading 
One of our clients had a requirement for wire rope’s to be fitted on a major building site to a penthouse apartment in London. The handrails were already in place and R & G attended site to fit the wire ropes. This involved running the ropes through the stanchions, fitting the eye bolts and then swaging the fitting’s onto the wire ropes. Once this was completed, the wires were then tensioned and cleaned. Architectural AISI grade Stainless Steel fitting’s were used on this project.


Emergency Replacement Fitting of Wire Rope 
R & G Marine carried out an emergency replacement and fitting of wire rope on a car ramp. We manufactured the new wire rope in our workshop using the existing solid thimble off of the old damaged wire rope and reused the wire rope socket, which was then fitted on site. This job was carried out at night and into the following morning.


Proof Load Test at one of London’s Docks 
R & G were asked by a client to carry out proof load testing of a Davit Crane on board a luxury yacht berthed in one of London’s Docks, which required a load of 380Kgs to be applied.


Stud Pull Testing
R & G have recently completed on site testing in London for a client, which involved stud pull testing on M16 ceiling studs that were resin fixed. Each stud had 15kn applied to them during testing. Four overhead lifting beams located in the same area were also tested and certified prior to being used.


Suspension Bridge
In the Summer of 2015 R & G were contracted by a major client to assist in removing worn out wire ropes and purpose made cast sockets on a Suspension Bridge in Bedfordshire, and then to refurbish the sockets and refit them to four new 38mm diameter wire ropes using resin compound and refit them to the fully refurbished Suspension Bridge. This project is a good example of how R & G personnel work with their clients to carry out contracts where the expertise of all concerned is paramount to conclude the Project successfully.
