Architectural Testingannounced it will open a new laboratory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Sept. 1. The facility will mark the twelfth ATI North American laboratory and the company’s first located outside the United States, according to a company release.

All testing facilities, personnel and methodologies are fully accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by the ICC’s International Accreditation Service. The Winnipeg facility also will be accredited by the Canadian Standards Association for conducting window and door certification tests, and by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association and Dade County (FL) for conducting window and door certification tests specified by those authorities.

The 7,000-square-foot facility will be equipped to conduct testing for basic window and door performance attributes in regards to wind loading, water leakage, air infiltration and forced entry. Additional tests can be conducted for resistance to impact from wind-borne debris, negative pressures and for the performance of mulled assemblies. Various other methods for testing to AAMA and ASTM requirements also will be available, according to the release.

In addition, the Winnipeg facility will offer a regional platform for Building Envelope Commissioning, forensic investigation and field testing services.
