We offer comprehensive testing and examination options for all types of windows, doors, and facades as well as for individual components such as window profiles, fittings, sun protection devices, mounting systems and the like in our own test centre at our location in Stetten bei Korneuburg. The testing and experimental facilities are specially tailored to the needs of the industry, and e.g. particularly large elements (6 m x 5.2 m) can be tested even under extremely high loads and demanding requirements. The flexibility of the facilities and creativity of the employees also allow unusual prototypes or special requests to be tested or examined.
Windows and facades
The focus is on the test options for air permeability, watertightness against driving rain, and resistance to wind load, supplemented by test options for permanent function, handling, mechanical properties, window and building connection etc.
Fire, heat and sound insulation.
Interior and exterior doors
The wide range of possibilities at HFA ranges from climatic stress via long-term function, handling, mechanical stress, flatness, impact stress, air permeability, watertightness against driving rain, resistance to wind load, all the way to escape and panic function or splash water and retained water test.
Fire, smoke, heat, and sound insulation.
Burglary resistance and avalanche protection
Burglary resistance testing equipment for determining static and dynamic loads up to resistance class WK/RC 6 as well as trained personnel for manual burglary.
In the area of avalanche protection, test facilities for dynamic point loads, dynamic surface loads and static surface loads for the avalanche protection classes LS 5 to LS 20.
We offer testing options for security fittings, fire protection fittings, (multi-point locking) locks, escape door locks, locking cylinders and locking sequence controls.
