Established in 1968, CONTROLS develops and supplies a complete range of testing solutions for cement, concrete and steel reinforcing bars for structural applications. Our systems are expertly designed and manufactured to meet the needs of every laboratory from Quality Control production to advanced applications for research projects.

Our comprehensive range of compression testing machines satisfies all EN, ASTM and other National Standards. A wide selection of accessories and upgrading options makes our concrete testing solutions flexible and modular allowing each user to expand their testing capabilities easily and as required, from basic Quality Control to Advanced Testing. Our products are complemented by a wide range of equipment for fresh and hardened concrete testing plus Non-Destructive Testing (NDT).

Retrofit, Stand-alone Control Console and Frames

Upgrade your manual compression machine to automatic load control with our new range of stand alone automatic control consoles that allow you to convert any frame, from any brand, into an automatic system that meets the demands of our 21st century concrete and cement testing.

Our five models of control consoles provide a cost effective way to retrofit any make of compression testers fitted with old Bourdon gauges or unreliable electronic readout unit and power pumps into one that is automatic and fitted with the latest technology.

Automatic concrete strength testing is now standard

Measuring compressive and flexural strength is crucial when testing concrete, and for this to happen, the correct loading rate must be applied. This is why, all our concrete strength and flexural testing systems are fully automatic.

Our smart and intuitive automatic range is highly accurate both during testing and when acquiring data. Our systems comply with Standards from Quality Control to advanced tests such as Displacement-controlled tests on Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
