Infrastructure and Testing

Installation and testing of anchor points, electrical connections and catenary wires.

It is vital that any decorations we install are onto safe anchor points. Our teams are trained in undertaking pull testing as well as the installation of new fixings (eyebolts, plates or bespoke fixtures). All our resins and rods are supplied by Hilti, the word leader in this sector. We can pull test to your specifications or can provide full structural calculations for new fixing points we install.

We will also specify and manufacture catenary wires for the suspension of the displays along with the appropriately rated shackles, strainers and wire cable diameter. For any structural testing of columns, we can undertake this on your behalf.

Of equal importance is to ensure a safe electrical supply. We can both test existing electrical supplies as well as installing new connection points (including RCD’s and timers).

We receive a very good service from Field and Lawn who support our programme of Christmas Lights.  We have a dedicated Project Manager who is our point of contact should we have any issues during our ‘switch on’ period which are then dealt with effectively and efficiently.
