air-lux sliding windows pass Florida hurricane tests
UL tested a total of five elements with different opening variants. Air-lux elements up to 11m wide and 4m high were tested under hurricane-like conditions (ASTM E 1886*, ASTM E 1996**, TAS 201, 202, 203). The tested sliding elements had a size of (WxH) 2809mm x 3906mm. In these tests, suction and pressure are simulated in a mass that only occurs in strong storms. In the cycling tests, the window is exposed to 4,500 times the suction and pressure within a few minutes and tested for air or water ingress. In addition, the windows and frames are intensively irrigated and bombarded with wooden masts as they fly through the air during hurricanes. Hurricane tests in the USA are among the most demanding tests a window system can undergo in terms of statics and tightness.
The air-lux window system has proven once again during the tests in the USA that it is the most robust and tightest sliding window system on the market
