As part of our ISO 17025 accreditation, Zero/Six maintains performance testing laboratories in Santa Fe, Texas, Galveston, Texas, and on the Rellis Campus of Texas A & M University. Our laboratories can implement performance testing on full size mock-up specimens up to 40’ wide by 40’ tall with custom sizes available to any specification.

Traditional Laboratory Tests

  • ASTM E283 | Standard Test Method for Determining Rate of Air Leakage through Exterior Windows, Doors, Skylights, and Curtain-Walls by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference
  • ASTM E330 | Standard Test Method for Determining the Structural Performance of Exterior Windows, Doors, Skylights, and Curtain-Walls by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference
  • ASTM E331 | Standard test Method for Water Penetration of Exterior Windows Doors, Skylights, and Curtain-Walls by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference
  • AAMA 501.1 | Water Penetration of Windows, Curtain-Walls, and doors using Dynamic Water Pressure

On-Site Performance Laboratory Services

In cases where it may not be practical to mobilize a project team to a Zero/Six Laboratory, Zero/Six can bring the laboratory to your job-site. History has proven that aesthetic Mock-ups (that exist on most every major project) can easily be enhanced to provide the framework for performance laboratory testing. This not only reduces the amount of funding required to construct two mock-ups (aesthetic and performance) to one combined mock-up, it reduces the amount of waste generated by the demotion of the two mock-ups at project delivery.
