Impact & Cyclic Load Testing-
Download form request
These tests determines the performance of fenestration systems
installed into buildings which are subjected to impact and cyclic static
pressure differentials which may be representative of windborne debris
and pressures in a windstorm environment. The performance determined by
this test relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to
remain un-breached during a windstorm.
To perform large and small missile testing, an air cannon with an air
pressure valve and control panel is used to fire variously sized timbers
at specified velocities and impact locations. The cyclic loading
apparatus is equipped to test products in excess of 300 psf. Our massive
test wall, with the size of 50’ by 24’ high, can easily accommodate even
the largest of products to be tested with ease.
