The Carleton Laboratory has a rich history of supporting the New York engineering community with specialty testing services. We have served industry in a wide variety of problems, ranging from high-strength manhole cover to full-scale shoring system tests, as well as fatigue testing of suspension bridge wires and monotonic and cyclical concrete masonry block test courses.
