Facade Systems Test Bench

  Copyright: © EBC

The test bench for façade systems is composed of four identical rooms with 12 m² floor area each.The façade of each room can be flexibly replaced with a test façade. If each room is equipped with a different façade, they can be compared under the same boundary conditions. In addition, all rooms have a supply of conditioned air and connections for both hot and cold water. The test bench can thus be used to investigate the physical properties and technical equipment of a façade. In addition, the installed window actuators can be used to analyze concepts of both natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation (centralized/decentralized) in terms of energy consumption, thermal comfort and air quality via test stand automation.
