Masonry Testing

Masonry is generally a highly durable form of construction. However, the materials used, the quality of the mortar and workmanship, and the pattern the units are put in can strongly affect the durability of the overall masonry construction. The most common materials of masonry construction are stone, brick and concrete block.

Masonry Testing In Depth

We carry out in situ and laboratory testing of mortar, screed, pre-cast concrete units.

 

Masonry Testing

Our permanent laboratories provide a comprehensive range of tests on masonry.

 

  • Compressive strength
  • Mix proportions of mortar & render
  • Capillary absorption
  • Initial surface absorption
  • Crack monitoring
  • Pull out tests - Tensile loading tests of structural fixings in concrete & masonry

 

Screed & Render Testing

Our permanent laboratories provide a comprehensive range of tests on screeds & renders.

 

  • Compressive strength
  • Mix proportions of screeds
  • In-situ crushing resistance of screeds
  • Relative humidity measurements of screed
  • Pull off tests / bond strength tests on screed and coatings
