PILE INTEGRITY TEST : Global Lab is one of the selected laboratory for the Pile Integrity Test Accredited by NABL of Concrete, steel & wooden Piles complying the requirement of ASTM D 5882.
OBJECTIVE OF TEST: The Pile Integrity Testing gives peace of mind that a pile or shaft is free of major cracks and voids, prior to construction of the superstructure. It may be used on most concrete or wood foundations.
The PIT test may also be used to test piles integral in the structure, such as those supporting existing bridges or towers, and may assess their length.
Structural integrity is most often of concern for bored piles. Other than visual inspection, when possible, several different methods are used indirectly to evaluate shaft structural integrity.
One of the earliest methods is low strain integrity testing.
