Curtain wall testing can be undertaken to verify design criteria, for compliance and for investigatory purposes.The results of testing are used to validate the design, workmanship, and material selection, and to gain the approval of clients, architects, and consultants.
Performing the following test will set the assurance of the integrity of curtain wall design and AZA INT purpose is always to ensure their curtain walls perform as intended. Here some typical tests:
- Wind Resistance
- Water Resistance (static and dynamic)
- Air Infiltration
- Structural Loading
- Thermal Cycling
- Dynamic Seismic Performance (lateral movement)
- Interstory Displacement (vertical movement)
- Acoustical Performance
- Impact Safety
- All applicable ASTM and AAMA standards
AZA INT customized curtain walls are tested in certified laboratories at the strictest conditions.
