Tests

 

The Termopiedra System has been certified by the Institute for Construction Science, Tecnalia Research & Innovation, and audited by the Institutes for Construction Science in 17 other countries in the European Union..

Once our facade system, the Deprot System, had passed all the stringent tests to which it was subjected, it was awarded the European Technical Assessment ETA 18/0442. Various ageing tests were also conducted by the CIDEMCO laboratory, which specializes in light facades..

The most important results in these tests showed that accelerated aging had no effect on the appearance of the panels and that there was high resistance to separation between the extruded polystyrene and the stone cladding, with an average value of 22,000 kg/m2 and a minimum value of 17,000 kg/m2. In the wind thrust and suction tests, the Termopiedra system reached the maximum wind speed produced by the machine (equivalent to 500 km/hr winds) without suffering any damage.

These excellent values are the result of the industrialization and standardization of the adhesion process, performed in “ideal” temperature, humidity and pressure conditions, as well as extensive research into adhesives.
