BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes

Product Testing

UKASWe operate a world leading, independent testing laboratory based on a 5.5 hectare campus with over 3,600m of indoor facilities.

Testing for weathertightness is carried out on cladding and photovoltaic panels.

Weathertight buildings are air tight buildings. Air tightness is a key element in ensuring building sustainability.

Products tested for sustainability include:

  • Curtain walling/cladding
  • Photovoltaic panels (MCS12 testing)
  • Undersea turbines
  • Windows
