  5. 5. “Any significant new building is a prototype” PAG E 05 LA BORATO RY B A SE D L A RG E SC A L E T E STI NG Wintech purpose built façade testing facility situated in Telford, close to the Midland motorway network, is one of only two of its kind in Europe. Sample sizes of up to 3 storeys high can be accommodated in bespoke rigs, or alternatively smaller samples can be tested under full internal laboratory conditions. The facility is also able to simulate seismic induced building movements. WINTECHTE ST PAGE 05 T E S T E N G I N E E R I N G

  7. 7. “Testing of a façade is the only way of truly establishing the built performance of an envelope before integration onto a building” PAG E 07 I N- HO USE L A B O R ATO RY T E STI NG Wintech provide a comprehensive range of materials testing and accreditation services. These include the industry standard intrusion resistance tests in accordance with BS EN 12600 hard and soft body impact testing, glass and safety film impact testing to demonstrate compliance with CE requirements. Wintech also complete window performance testing at their in-house purpose built research and development rig. Bespoke testing can also be undertaken including material strength and pullout tests.
