Testing Information


Access to our own acoustic, wind and water test lab in Germany, which tests to all current standards and is overseen and certificated by ift Rosenheim.

Based on your requirements, our consultants can design and implement a programme to run in our lab, which allows testing of a variety of components in a range of sizes.

In the lab, we can raise the sound insulation values for joints and construction elements such as doors and windows. The laboratory meets the requirements of EN ISO 10140

and comprises three rooms which together form an L shape. The rooms are separated from each other by a modular partition wall system, in one case, and by a concrete wall, in the other. Both walls have a test opening which can be quickly and flexibly adjusted to suit the elements to be tested.
