Product Datasheet

General product description

Test rig and mountings for long life testing of windows and French windows. Turn/swivel as well as tilt function and simple sliding operation can be tested with this module.
The control module is an operating device using a touch display for visualization. It also enables separate operation of two drive units. The delivery includes four velocity sensors for controlled and measured opening and closing. The main components of this test rig are a clamping surface, a control cabinet as well as four velocity sensors.
With the turn and tilt drive unit windows and French windows are tested up to a width of 1700 mm. The DDK module may be rebuilt without difficulty for any located side.
Through an additional attachment a testing according to the standard EN 13126-8 via the tilt drive unit is possible. Additional feature can be added for testing the QM 328 standard as well.


On request the following options can be offered:

  • Durability test rig for windows, combination of operation devices (as described in the basic version; main feature is the synchronous tilting/swiveling, turning and simple sliding operation of more than one specimen at the same time)
  • Individual clamping wall (dimensions according to your needs, incl. three steel beam for mounting on the floor, cross-beam, eight clamping elements, and support bracket)
  • Mounting bracket for double leaf doors (elements with a width of 2500 mm)
  • Tilting actuation device (linear pneumatic actuator with tilting limit switch, pneumatic rotating actuator for handle operations)
  • Turning actuation device (pneumatic rotating actuator with turning limit switch, pneumatic rotating actuator for handle operations)
  • Electromotive turn/tilt device (alternative device to the pneumatic basic version; one final device for turn and tilt actuation, detailed program entry, upcoming standards can be covered)
  • Attachment for testing of fittings according to EN 13126-8 standard
  • Trolley for modification of the devices (incl. swivel arm)
  • Actuation device for lifting and sliding doors (all required components are included)
  • Actuation device for lifting/sliding doors and parallel tilt slide windows (all required components are included)
  • Calibration of the test rig
  • Individual coating

Note: Individual features, especially for your needs, can be provided after consulting.
