Product Testing & Analysis
DH Glabe & Associates provides comprehensive product development services for scaffolding, shoring, forming, davits, fall protection devices and other related construction engineering products. We provide services for all phases of the testing process including computer modeled analysis, applicable code review, load testing, technical reports and safety manuals.
Product analysis and design is performed by many manufacturers and testing laboratories across the United States. Most of these testing facilities can provide analytical and test data of component parts, but what sets DH Glabe & Associates apart is our ability to apply our engineering expertise to analyze these components as part of complete systems. For example, a scaffold tube in an isolated testing environment may have the capacity to act as a suitable fall protection anchor. However, this same tube as part of a complete scaffold structure may not be suitable for use as an anchor. Due to the lateral forces imposed on the scaffold by a potential fall, the entire system may not have the stability to withstand these forces. DH Glabe & Associates helps our clients understand these external factors by providing them with turn-key analysis of how their products will perform in the real world, not just in a testing lab.
DH Glabe & Associates not only provides our clientele with years of product analysis and testing experience, but the practical expertise to bring this data into the real-world. Whether testing a scaffold or shoring product, computer modeling analysis of forming or fall protection products, or providing support in authoring technical and safety manuals, we have the expertise to supply it all.
From Hawaii to New York and anywhere in between, our network of expert engineers is there to support our clients in all aspects of the product development process. We are capable of managing and testing products at our facilities, or we can travel to provide oversight at any facility in the country. We develop partnerships with our clients to guide them through the entire process to ensure project success and an exceptional final product.
