Strainstall: 50 years of cutting edge innovation

Strainstall celebrates 50 years at the forefront of developing innovative monitoring solutions for its global customers.

From a small start in the 1960s, the company has grown to be the leader in product development in the monitoring industry and has secured its reputation for specialising in the development of bespoke and integrated solutions to suit specific customer requirements.

Today Strainstall is an internationally recognised brand with bases in Dubai, Malaysia and Singapore and a reputation for specialising in the design and manufacture of load cells, strain gauges and integrated monitoring systems which are proven to perform year after year in hostile and hazardous environments.

Its teams have been involved in some of the biggest and most significant engineering projects in the world.

Strainstall's engineers capture and analyses data on parameters such as displacement, inclination, temperature, vibration, strain and water levels to provide a real-time overview of events enabling them to realise optimum performance.

Another area of expertise is in the development of cutting edge monitoring and control solutions for global offshore industries, and Strainstall is  a leading manufacturer of bespoke load monitoring systems for offshore environments.
