Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global safety science organization, has launched new testing services for the building envelope. UL is now offering curtainwall mock-up testing and field testing capabilities, according to a release from the company.

Performance testing is available to determine the rate of air infiltration, water penetration, structural, impact and cyclical performance for doors, windows and curtainwalls. Testing can be conducted in the laboratory, in the field and in curtainwall mock-ups.

“These new testing capabilities not only help validate the design and material selection of the building envelope, but also help deliver assurance that windows, curtainwalls and storefronts are compliant with industry standards and requirements,” says Wayne Breighner, engineering manager of UL Fenestration Services.
