During negotiations with a client in the petro-chemical industry SÄLZER had a request for a window not only capable of resisting blast loads but also with the ability to withstand airborne debris associated with tropical storm. SÄLZER then embarked on a series of tests on our S6 energy saving windows in accordance with the Australian standards.



The window passed successfully the test.
Because a cyclone is accompanied by strong winds and heavy rains, the previously tested element was afterwards tested according the Australian standard for wind load and water tightness. The resistant values ​​required by the Australian standard (7,500 Pa) are several times higher than the European standard. The requirements for water tightness (773 Pa) were far exceeded with a test result of 2,250 Pa.
