Having visual and performance mock-ups allows Vidaris to validate the design with a specific manufacturer. After we review drawings, test criteria and test sequence, Vidaris witnesses the mock-up testing and prepares a report that can be used as a guide for monitoring the job site installation. We also provide our client a final report that illustrates our observations, any modifications made to the design, and any additional recommendations, including our consultation for remediation of any deficiencies detected during the mock-up as well as retesting procedures (if required).
Tests can include static air infiltration, static and dynamic water infiltration, and structural, seismic, thermal and condensation performance of the exterior wall. These tests confirm performance meets industry standards and specified criteria.
