Safety Glazing & Insulated Glass Testing
Our large environmental-climate controlled insulated glass test facility can accommodate multiple specimens. Insulated glass samples are subject to environmental exposure to measure their performance for seal durability, weathering, and fogging; Insulating glass sample endures a combined total of 16 weeks for exposure to extreme temperature variations, ultraviolet exposure, and humidity.
QAI undertakes thorough performance characterizations before, during, and after temperature cycling to describe accurately any changes that occur during the different phases of testing. Some changes are transitory lasting only during a stage of testing; others are permanent due to irreversible damage to critical components that affect the overall system performance.
Certification of your insulated glass ensures their performance and, therefore, their widespread use in the building industry attributes.
Founded in 1994 by a group of experienced certification and testing experts, QAI is an independent third-party testing, inspection and certification organization which serves the building industry, government and individuals with cost effective solutions through our global, in-house capabilities / services.
During the current pandemic, it is our top priority to support projects
QAI’s California-based facility has partnered with BSI to offer electrical safety approvals
