TESTING  &  SERVICES

REI-LUX Services - we provide an onsite assessment of the structural integrity and performance of utility service columns and their foundations for a wide variety of asset owners.

  • COUNCILS

  • TRANSPORT AGENCIES

  • AIRPORTS

  • MINES

 

Systems:

  • STREET LIGHT POLES

  • FLOOD LIGHT COLUMNS

  • TRAFFIC SIGNAL SYSTEMS

  • COMMUNICATION POLES

  • FLAG POLES

 

The non-destructive tests are carried out in accordance with Australian standards AS/NZS1170 by means of the high-tech speciality REI-LUX equipment.

COMPLIANCE

REI-LUX AUS Static and Dynamic load tests as applicable comply with the requirements as to structural robustness as more fully specified in AS/NZS1170

WARRANTY

REI-LUX AUS warrants the safety of nominated structures for 5 years subject to the limitations set out in our issued certificates

TESTS PERFORMED
Point load Static & Dynamic test for systems <15m high:
  • STREET LIGHT POLES

  • FLOOD LIGHT COLUMNS

  • TRAFFIC SIGNALS SYSTEMS

 

These tests are generally performed on poles that measure up to 15 meters high and in areas that can be accessed to carry out the point load tests. The horizontal point load forces imposed are a simulation of the wind load forces that the system endures during its lifecycle in that position. The performance of the pole and the foundation are accurately measured and analysed via the onboard computer. Once the static test is complete and the tester is satisfied with the result, they will save it and carry out a dynamic load test.

Rotation Generator Dynamic test for systems >15m high:
  • STREET LIGHT POLES

  • FLOOD LIGHT COLUMNS

  • TRAFFIC SIGNALS LIGHTS (TSL’s)

A rotational generated load test is conducted when poles are too large or awkward to attach the point load test equipment to. This test requires the use of an EWP to inspect the system and attach the test unit 1/3 up from ground level. The entire performance of the pole and the foundation are accurately measured and analysed using the built fast Fourier analysis software via the onboard computer.

A point static load test is only out in conjunction with a RG dynamic test when it the capacity allows.

BENEFITS

ECONOMICAL

Streetlight poles tests take around 15 minutes averaging 30 poles in a day. Flood light columns tests can vary but on average 10 systems can be tested in a day.

AUDITABLE DATA

 

The measurement results and all other important detailed information are stored for the final report normally takes a week to deliver.

Poles that are found to be in unstable and require immediate attention are reported the moment they are found for immediate attention.

MEASURABLE INFORMATION

 

The measurable results provide supportive information to better manage a network.
