Testing

Any cladding system being used for either the first time on a building or any system being used in an unusual or innovative manner should be tested.

Testing will evaluate the basic design concept under rigorous but controlled and repeatable conditions. Such testing should always be carried out by an independent authority and independently witnessed and certified.

Cladtech Associates can develop suitable test strategies, both in the Laboratory and in the Field, witness the tests and provide certified reports on completion.

All recognised international standards can be accommodated and test regimes can include: -

  • Static air and water tests.
  • Dynamic testing.
  • Thermal cycling.
  • Thermal analysis and measurement.
  • Acoustics.
  • On site testing.
  • Materials testing.
  • Structural deformation response testing (Seismic).
  • Site testing insulating glass units to British Standards.
