NCTL is equiped with a 35′ high by 60′ wide outdoor test wall and 20′ high by 50′ wide indoor test wall allowing architects, consultants, designers, etc. to verify their mock-up assembly’s design and performance. NCTL can determine curtain wall air leakage (ASTM E283), water resistance (ASTM E331/static & AAMA 501.1/dynamic), wind load resistance (ASTM E330), interstory displacement (AAMA 501.4) and thermal cycling (AAMA 501.5).

NCTL’s outdoor wall can accomodate multiple specimens and testing can progress efficiently with the use of our Galion 15 Ton-60′ crane for the construction and fabrication of the mock-ups.
