TELFORD, ENGLAND, Oct. 24, 2022 — UL Solutions, a global leader in applied safety science, will open this autumn a new, larger testing and certification facility at its Telford centre in the United Kingdom (U.K.) to provide a single location for manufacturers of doors, windows, hardware and building envelope systems.
Located on the Halesfield 2 industrial park in Telford, the expansion will allow the facility to provide mechanical testing and certification for physical security, durability and performance of doors, windows and hardware, alongside weather resistance testing and performance mock-up testing for full-scale wall assemblies, including rainscreen cladding, glazed roofs, window assemblies and curtain walls.
“For many years, we have supported the facade industry from our Telford centre, working with manufacturers and fabricators of curtain wall systems, rainscreen products and other building elements to help them access global markets faster and more effectively through our independent testing and certification services,” said Karine Johnfroe, vice president and general manager of the UL Solutions Built Environment group. “By bringing all the building envelope, door and fenestration testing and certification services together at Telford, we will be able to deliver our customers’ results more quickly and efficiently, helping them save time and money.”
The new combined facilities will help customers achieve a wide range of certifications. Outfitted with state-of-the-art testing equipment, the facility will be able to accommodate a variety of window and door configurations, testing to a range of industry-recognised standards, including PAS 24 for security and BS 6375 for weather tightness, operation, strength and durability.
