Design, Development and Testing
A 5m wide x 6m high weather test rig lets us test windows, doors and curtain walling elements to see how they will perform in the worst of the UK weather – from window loading and safety gusting to air and water penetration. We can test to all the elements of the PAS24 security test on our smaller 3.5m x 3.5m test, and cycle test hardware to make sure it’s more than up to the operational forces of our sliders and bifolds.
There’s much more to our testing than just accreditations. We test throughout the development stage of every new product to make sure it meets the required performance targets, and we can even work live on the test rigs if we need to implement project-based design solutions for specific applications.
We can share all this knowledge and experience with our customers to help them get their own products independently tested and accredited as simply and cost effectively as possible.
We also work in collaboration with the testing, inspection and certification specialists BM Trada so that the vast majority of our products are certified under their Q-Mark scheme. That means customers can join Q-Mark for themselves and access the scope of our long-term testing regimes for themselves.
