We operate one of the world’s leading cladding and curtain walling test facilities and have decades of experience in this field.
Testing is carried out European and international standards to validate performance versus design criteria. Testing also presents value engineering opportunities to tackle buildability issues on the ground.
Curtain Walling - Standard Weathertightness and Impact Tests include:
|CWCT section||American standard||European Standard|
|Air Permeability||5||ASTM E283||EN12153|
|Static Water||6||ASTM E331||EN12155|
|Dynamic Water||7||AAMA 501.1||EN13050|
|Wind Load||11 & 12||ASTM E330||EN12179|
Discretionary tests performed at our laboratory include:
- Building movement
- Seismic testing to AAMA standards
- Thermal Cycling to CWCT standards
