Every single point anchor must have these four tests conducted with both the anchor and the structure performing satisfactorily before they can claim to conform to the AS/NZS 5532 Standard.
Test 1: Dynamic load in-line with the roof sheet - 15kN
This test requires a 100kg mass to be dropped 2 metres off the anchor while it is installed on the substrate / roof deck that it is intended to be installed on. The test is performed in-line with the deck.
Test 2: Static load in-line with the roof sheet - 15kN
A load of 1,530kg (15kN) is held by the anchor for a period of 3 minutes. Once again the anchor must be installed onto the relevant substrate / roof deck.
Test 3: Dynamic load across the roof sheet - 15kN
This third test is the same as Test 1, however instead of the anchor being loaded in-line with the substrate / roof deck it is turned 90 degrees to be loaded across.
Test 4: Static load across the roof sheet - 15kN
The fourth test is the same as Test 2 but is performed with the anchor being loaded across the substrate / roof deck.
