STATEMENT OF THE EMPA TEST CERTIFICATE 460’ 353/2 FROM 9TH MAY 2012
The NEVOSAFE™ safety strip has been developed for the use on building sites. It is clipped on to the protruding ends of reinforcement bars as a transition to further layers of concrete. These are essential to preventing a falling worker from being impaled on an exposed beam.
The objective of the investigation was to test the effectiveness of the safety strip. The strips were mounted on vertical reinforcement bars with diameters of 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16mm and at the spacing commonly used in actual practise. A 100kg sandbag was then dropped centrally from a height of 3m to simulate a falling worker. In all tests, the sandbag was protected from being impaled. As a result, those strips successfully passed the assurance tests and were ready to be used on any construction site.
