Haag’s Pressure Chamber can simulate wind pressure up to 250 psf and rainfall up to 8 inches per hour. We test building envelope assemblies including curtain walls, windows, doors and skylights to simulate wind design pressures. Testing is performed in accordance with ASTM E330, E331, E1105, E2268 & E547; FM 4474; UL 580 and 1897; AAMA 502; and TAS 202 & 203.
Haag is now IAS Accredited for pressure chamber testing.
