Barrier Testing

As a result of both NHBC requirements and a growing number of project specifications, the testing of barriers and balustrades to ensure their safe performance has become increasingly common over the past five years.

At Wintech, we have developed a test method to demonstrate that any barrier installed on a building is capable of safely withstanding the loads defined in BS 6399-1 and BS 6180. A range of different tests are applied, including horizontal line loads positioned 1.1m from the finished floor level, point loads to parts of the infill and uniformly distributed loads applied to the infill.

Barrier testing falls outside the scope of our current UKAS accreditation.
