Dillon Quick-Check Used for 50th Africa Games

Dillon Quick-Check was recently used in the preparations for the 50th Africa Games. Held in Brazzaville, Congo in September 2016, the Games included spectacular visual displays involving a giant cube in the center of the stadium.

The giant cube was held in place with dozens of wires that needed to be tensioned correctly and contractor CATS Engineering selected the Dillon Quick-Check to help achieve this.

Interestingly, the Quick Check measured wire rope tensions very accurately compared to a Dynamometer with the added advantage of taking just a few seconds rather than several minutes.

Thomas Loriaux, CEO of CATS Engineering said, “Our experience with using this Dillon product on site was great. It provided accuracy, efficiency and weather resistance. On-site calibration with local products and condition went perfectly.”
