The test rig can accommodate large door and window samples up to four metres wide and four metres high, ideal for large sliding and sliding-folding patio doors that are currently popular in the marketplace.

Air permeability test results can also be used for energy rating calculations.

The Willenhall facility has also increased its UKAS scope of approval to include air permeability to EN12427, water tightness to EN12489 and wind resistance to EN12444 on full size industrial and commercial doors and roller shutters.

Mark West, Door & Window Laboratory Manager, comments: “This latest investment has greatly improved the test environment, and the turnaround time of tests, and allows us to provide our customers with the quality and speed of service they demand.”
