On-site testing services

Some optical & thermal properties can be tested on-site. Listed below are the on-site testing services performed by our laboratory:

On-site testing of glass color uniformityOn-site measurement of glass color uniformity, with the following results:
  ◦   Colors (reference and samples)
  ◦   Color differences (between reference and samples)

On-site monitoring services

For optical & thermal properties that cannot be tested on-site, it is possible to perform long-term performance monitoring to get equivalent or correlated results. Additionally, we can also perform weather monitoring or micro-climate monitoring on request. Listed below are the on-site monitoring services performed by our laboratory:

Optical & thermal performance moniotring

On-site glass optical & thermal performance monitoringOn-site monitoring of the following quantities related to glass optical & thermal performance:
  ◦   Solar irradiance (outdoor and indoor)
  ◦   Daylight illuminance (outdoor and indoor)
  ◦   Air temperature (outdoor and indoor)
  ◦   Glass surface temperature
