Frame thermal performance (U-value and SHGC) calculation service
We are a Singapore-based third-party test laboratory, providing window or curtain wall system frame thermal performance (U-value & SHGC) calculation service.
The fenestration system (windows, doors, curtain walls and skylights) thermal performance is dependent on both glazing and frame.
Thermally broken aluminium frame is one of the solutions to achieve better U-value and SHGC performance.
OTM conducts the frame and fenestration thermal performance calculations as an independent third-party laboratory. The calcualtion procedures are in compliance with the US NFRC standards.
