Building Wind Resistance Testing Procedure

Testing for Building Wind Resistance is carried out on façades to simulate the planned wind environment of the product. Wind resistance testing tests façades for their ability to withstand high winds, tunnelling, and peak pressure loading caused by storms.

Testing is carried out in BET’s off-site laboratory in Arklow, Co Wicklow, Ireland. However, Building Wind Resistance Testing can be carried out on-site or on the manufacturer’s premises where required.

Contact BET for all your wind load testing requirements.
