In order to determine your exact testing requirements we would need a complete copy of your project specification if available together with system drawings.

We are able to facilitate any sizes available for roofing systems and up to 12m high x 12m wide for curtain walling. Samples above this size may be accommodated subject to review of system drawings.

Please call or e-mail on the links above to discuss your specific testing requirements.
