QAI offers architects and designers comprehensive mock-up testing capabilities to ensure their curtain walls are properly designed and will function as expected. QAI is not restricted; your largest mock-ups can be constructed and tested outdoors. The results of our testing are used to validate the design, workmanship, material selection, and to gain the approval of clients, architects, and or consultants.
Tests are performed according to AAMA, ASTM, ANSI, CPSC, Architectural Project Specifications, and other standards or test programs. Tests can involve precast structures, metal/glass, exterior skins, live or dead loads. Custom test conditions can be devised by QAI experts to measure other performance attributes.
