Hooked on certification
Van Beest a leading supplier of standard fittings for chain and steel wire rope has renewed our DGUV type approvals for many of our Excel hook products. This allows Van Beest to H-stamp the components with a unique H number (H94).
DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung / German Social Accident Insurance) is the umbrella association of the accident insurance institutions for the industrial and public sectors, a leading certification association in Europe.
The test procedure includes verification of materials, verification of the dimensions on individual samples, tensile tests, fatigue tests and some specific tests such as a bending test, a latch lock test and a latch strength test. The results are compared to the specifications mentioned in the EN 1677 norm.
Van Beest says, “With this comprehensive testing procedure and certification of both chain and components we supply the highest quality Excel products that contribute to a safe working environment.”
