WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO?
Harrigen Ltd is a company set up by Phil Gennard and Rob Harris to provide testing of edge protection systems to the BS EN13374:2013+A1:2018 standard.
The testing confirms whether or not an edge protection system will fulfill the necessary requirements of the standard. Installers and suppliers of edge protection need to be able provide evidence of conformity to the standard.
The testing includes the Dynamic Swing Bag Test required for Class B systems; using mesh panel systems or designs incorporating tube and fitting. Harrigen is able to confirm static load requirements (deflection) for class A & B by testing. Harrigen will also test to confirm downward serviceability loads.
Phil and Rob have extensive experience of working at height in a construction environment and in the use of designed Edge Protection systems. With a combined knowledge, totaling some 50 years, clients can be assured that the testing is delivered competently and strictly in accordance with the Standard.
Additional, independent guidance and information on Edge Protection to BS EN 13374 can be found through the FASET website or the Edge Protection Federation website.
