Our lab is fully equipped to test products for their durability against wind, rain, heat, cold, sunlight, humidity, and moisture. With dependable and reliable testing data, we help manufacturers understand how their products stand up in real-world conditions.
Corrosion testing is an environmental simulation to evaluate the corrosion resistance of materials, products, and coatings. Our test capabilities include ASTM B117 and custom testing in our Salt Fog Testing Machine.
Temperature and humidity testing determines the resistance and effect of building products and materials to environmental extremes. Our lab has small- to large-scale environmental chambers capable of maintaining standard and custom test conditions and cycles — with temperatures as high as 150°F or as low as 10°F.
Home Innovation Research Labs is an approved testing laboratory in accordance with Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources. These services are available to manufacturers of construction products and assemblies seeking to obtain Miami Dade product approval to let Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), architects, specifiers and buyers know that your products meet the special requirements for hurricane-prone regions.
Impact testing simulates windborne debris striking a building during a hurricane. Our Air Cannon is capable of launching large (e.g., an 8’ 2x4) and small missiles into building products to understand how they will perform under impact.
Accelerated weathering simulates the long-term exposure of building products and materials to outdoor conditions. With Xenon Arc and QUV weatherometers we can expose test samples to standard and custom cycles of light, humidity, temperature, and water spray and evaluate the reduction of strength, color change, and deterioration from prolonged exposure.
Wind-driven rain testing exposes building products, materials, and systems to simulated storm conditions. Our test chamber is used to measure your product or system’s ability to resist water penetration and determine the structural integrity under prescriptive wind loads.
