Test and Training
Our testing center in Harderwijk works daily on improving our existing and new products. Before they are marketed they are thoroughly tested for wind and watertightness, burglary and fire safety. Furthermore, workshops are offered to ensure the quality of our systems.
Wind and watertightness
In our new testing center we have access to a test cabinet for wind and watertightness. In this test cabinet we can place elements of 4 x 4 meters. In this way we can determine wind and watertightness according to the latest standards.
This is done as follows:
In this cabinet we can determine air loss by means of over- and underpressure. To determine local air leakage, the cabinet can be filled with smoke. After this has been determined, water is sprayed on the element, and the overpressure is built up until leakage occurs. Before an Alcoa product is marketed, tesing must confirm that the system complies with the latest requirements and standards.
Our testing center handles testing and development of our own products as well as tests for our customers.
