Glass can be challenging from a certification perspective. Depending on the application and certifying agency, only a simple abuse and impact test may be required. Other installations have required more comprehensive testing requiring static, fracture, impact and dynamic retention testing. We are setup to perform glass testing per:

  • RTCA-DO-313
  • UL 61965
  • UL1418
  • ANSI/SAE Z26.1

Glass Penduleum Impact Test


Our specialty is providing custom, turnkey structural testing solutions to solve our customers certification needs. Typically, we initially interface with the customer to define test requirements and objectives. We then prepare the certification test plan and test rig drawings/models. After customer concurrence, we fabricate the test setup and loading apparatus, install the test article, and obtain the necessary conformity inspections. The test is performed per the test plan with required witnesses and observers. Test results and data are electronically captured and delivered to the customer with a test results report.  With close to a thousand tests performed over the last 22 years, we have become quite efficient at this and can provide our services at a competitive price and schedule.
