Flexure Tests on Glass
The increasingly higher demands of clients and architects are bringing us closer and closer to the limits of what is technically possible in the field of construction. Compared to steel construction, glass construction still has very few standards. Computer control is often not possible, making destructive testing necessary to test the structure and document it accordingly. ZwickRoell supplies fixtures to enable standardized tests to be performed, including 4-point flexure tests on construction glass according to EN 1288-3 or the double-ring flexure test on flat specimens according to DIN EN 1288-5. ZwickRoell also provides solutions for individual testing requirements.
