The Controlock® technology is a unique force measurement system, which establishes the retention force of a magnet in use with a certainty of 100%. This certainty of 100% is the reason that McNetiq Controlock® anchor points are certified and recognized by the norm EN 795.
McNetiq's Controlock® technology measures the exact load capacity of the magnet anchoring, on the anchor location, in advance.
Measurements apply to both the perpendicular pull force and the lateral shear force. A measuring device and a registration device determine the load capacity.
Regular magnetic anchors are designed based on a standard value (the maximum load). However, this value cannot always be achieved due to an uneven surface. Furthermore, corrosion, fouling, and paint layers can cause air gaps, which influence the operation of the magnets negatively; this is also applicable to the varying thickness of the material.
