Glas Vision 3000 windows have been fully independently tested by ift Rosenheim in Germany (full test results are available on our downloads page) for Watertightness, i.e. the ability of the window system to resist water penetration to the internal face after spraying the window and then applying pressure to the external face of the window in set steps from zero up to 600Pa.
The sample windows were tested to EN 1027 : 2000-06 and the results are classified in accordance with EN 12208 : 1999-11.
BS 6375-1 : 2004 recommends a class 3A or 100Pa for most locations in the UK rising to class 5A or 200Pa for extreme conditions.
The performance levels achieved by the Vision 3000 product are well in excess of these requirements and, in the case of the tilt & turn and bottom hung casements, reached the maximum pressure able to be applied to a window (1050Pa) in the ift Rosenheim laboratories.
With the outstanding performance figures, you can be rest assured that the
Vision 3000 product will be suitable for any almost any application, even
for the most extreme conditions.
