Thermal Product Performance Testing

Thermal product testing covers a wide variety of criteria including:

  • U-factor: insulating value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient: amount of passive heat that passes through the window
  • Condensation Resistance: value that dictates when warm moist air will condensate on a window

Due to the extremely large amount of glass options that manufacturers offer, we use industry standard simulation software to calculate these values. The validity of the computer model is verified by the actual physical test.
