Wind Resistance Testing (Serviceability & Safety)
Building Envelope Technologies carry out Wind Resistance Testing on Curtain Walling, Doors, Windows, Rooflights, Cladding and Roofs. The testing is carried out in accordance with
· EN 12211: 2000,
· EN 12179:2000,
· CWCT Section 11,

· BET can provide bespoke testing solutions where required.
Wind resistance testing is carried out on facades to simulate the planned wind environment of the product. Wind resistance testing tests facades for its ability to withstand high winds, tunnelling and peak pressure loading caused by storms.
Testing is carried out in BET’s off-site laboratory in Arklow, Co Wicklow, Ireland. However, wind resistance can be carried out onsite or in the manufacturers premises where required.
