Thermal Laboratory

The thermal laboratory offer  thermal property evaluation services (conductivity, thermal resistance, condensation risk…) of construction materials, products and systems via testing and simulation. We also support manufacturers from the design phase, in the process of enhancing the thermal properties of their products, working with them to obtain values that fulfil the strictest demands in terms of energy efficiency in building.

Thermal Laboratory

Aimed at...

  • Manufacturers of materials, construction elements and construction systems: insulation material, carpentry, façade elements, sandwich panels, etc.
  • Constructors and Developers.
  • Quality Control Firms.

Services

  • Assessment of the thermal insulation and thermal resistance properties of construction materials and elements.
  • Thermal characterisation of insulation.
  • Determination of thermal properties through testing or simulation.
  • "In situ" determination of thermal bridges and infiltrations in building.

Technological Capability

  • Test benches for the determination of thermal transmittance and thermal conductivity:
    • Hot Box for construction elements.
    • CDA: Hot plate measurement for insulation.
    • Climatic chambers.
  • Finite element simulation software.
  • Thermographic chamber and monitoring equipment.
