Facade Performance

Facade Performance Testing, also called Curtain Wall Testing or Mock-up Testing. The laboratory provides a structure (Chamber) to which the curtain wall contractor fixes their specimen (Performance Mockup Unit - PMU) and encloses it to form an air-tight chamber. PMU size varies per projects, it might include glass curtain walling, window & door, skylight, metal cladding...etc. Beside the basic tests of Air Infiltration, Static/Dynamic Water Penetration and Structural Load, number of other procedures and tests designed to verify the performance of the facade in accordance with the specified standards.
Laborartory Testing verifies that the design of the proposed system is capable, when assembled and test in the laboratory, of meeting the design criteria. It gives assurance to the project management team that the project will meet the project requirements. Every job is different and should be tested no matter the proposed system has been tested before for assurance.
