Civil Engineering / FLAT JACKS KIT SYSTEM


Hydraulic system for tests with flat jacks on masonry structures

The usage of the method of investigation related to flat jacks is bond to the need to assess the quality of masonry structures and determine mechanical properties.

This product can be rented.

The major difficulties found in representative samples from the walls, contributed to the development of methodologies and innovative tools more and more reliable.

The system consists on a unit of pressurization, a single outlet connected to a flexible full of quick release coupling graft and a pressure gauge for displaying the pressure value.

The equipment is all designed and made in aluminium and other light alloys to provide high mechanical properties combined with lightness and manuvrability.
The use of components with standard requirements allows Novatest’s flat jacks to be applied to all kinds of pressurization units, making them unique and multipurpose.

Part of Flat Jacks System is compatible with other instruments like Pull-Out Kit, Pull-Off Kit or Plate Load Test Kit.
