Test laboratory and inspection body

Accredited and notified test laboratory according to EN ISO/IEC 17025

Our examiners in Dornbirn have experience of many years in the planning, manufacture and fitting of windows, doors, facades and completions. Our expertise forms the basis for an optimised inspection schedule of product lines and systems. In the sectors of metallography, destructive physical analysis (DPA) and non-destructive testing (NDT), comprehensive powers exist in the accredited sector. Specialist welding engineers, welding technologists and levels II and III materials testers contribute to the safety of components through their experience. As accredited and notified test laboratory we issue approved test certification according to diverse technical specifications, throughout Europe.
