Laboratory sites DEKRA Automobil GmbH, Germany

Materials engineering and inspection services

For lightweight constructions and membrane structures, we carry out on-site inspections and specialised laboratory tests of technical textiles. We are DIBt recognised as a testing, monitoring and certification body (PÜZ). Our experts also inspect, test and certify reinforcing steel and metal construction products. For fire protection of buildings we test sprinkler heads on our own test stand.

    Testing and certification according to DIN 488 and building authority approval

    As a manufacturer or processor of concrete-reinforcing steel, you must comply with legal requirements. Our materials experts test and certify your products on site and in the accredited DEKRA laboratory.
    In addition to the dimensions and profiling or ribbing of reinforcing steel products, tests in the laboratory include essential properties such as elasticity, ductility, tensile strength, yield strength and weldability.
    Our DEKRA laboratory is recognised by the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) and by the Supreme Building Authority as a testing, monitoring and certification body (PÜZ) according to Building Regulation List A and accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.

    Your benefits with DEKRA for the testing of concrete-reinforcing steel

    • Efficient on-site inspection and testing in the laboratory with experienced materials experts
    • Europe-wide product approvals
    • Recognised testing, monitoring and certification body (PÜZ) according to Building Rules List A
    • Smooth handling of your recognition and certification procedures

    Legally compliant fulfilment of technical requirements

    The scope of DIN standard 488 for reinforcing steel extends to weldable steel grades for concrete reinforcement, which can be designed as bars, rings, meshes or grids. For reinforcement elements that deviate from this standard, a building authority approval by the responsible state building authority is required.
    Our materials laboratory in Saarbrücken is a DBV-approved testing body for industrially manufactured supports according to Eurocode 2 in accordance with Annex A, DBV leaflet "Supports" (certification based on certificate).
