AWW Testing

The idea of creating this service of CITEEC arises from the growing concern of private and public agents for quality in buildings.

Taking advantage of our experience in the field of research, we have launched the AWW Test Laboratory, whose independence and objectivity are endorsed by the Universidade da Coruña.

The new Test Bench, manufactured to comply with the requirements of the European Standards, and our specialized personnel guarantee rigorous results. The automation of the tests for weather resistance in terms of air permeability, water tightness and wind resistance provides a high degree of precision to ensure it meets British and European test standards.

It is equipped with a computerized data acquisition system, which achieves greater accuracy and speed in the final report.

The laminated glass on which the samples are installed allows to observe the operation of the drains during the test.


Suitable system for carrying out the tests specified in the following standards:

  • UNE-EN 1026: 2000 Windows and doors. Air permeability. Testing method.
  • UNE-EN 1027: 2000 Windows and doors. Watertightness. Testing method.
