Testing of windows, doors and facades
acc. to EN 1191 • EN 13830 • EN 14351-1
The CE mark for windows and outer doors without flammability properties has been required for quite some time. EN 14351-1 describes the performance characteristics in conjunction with the CE mark. PIV is notified for this standard, i.e. it has Europe-wide approval to conduct these tests.
Customary characteristics include, for example:
- Air permeability
- Water tightness
- Wind load resistance
- Mechanical strength
- Durability test
PIV has a test bench available for testing air permeability in accordance with EN 1026, water tightness in accordance with EN 1027 and wind load resistance in accordance with EN 12211. Devices with dimensions up to six by five metres can be tested here. The maximum test pressure is 5,000 pascals (depending on the size and density of the component).
State-of-the-art testing equipment is also available for testing mechanical strength and durability in accordance with EN 1191.
