Construction component test chambers

Construction component chambers

ACS unique thermal transmittance test chambers for construction components testing.

The aim of this specific chamber project is the design and implementation of a test facility for facade elements ranging from walls, roofs, windows and doors to sunscreens for the investigation of their thermal behaviour both in winter and summer case under stationary and dynamic conditions.

In particular the test facility will be able to evaluate the overall thermal behaviour of solar active building elements, i.e. façade elements with integrated modules for the production of electric power or heat based on solar technologies, under close-to-reality conditions: e.g. how does the integrated solar thermal collector alter the temperature profile and energy flow in the wall? Does the further insulation enhance the efficiency of the collector? And conversely: how must the wall element be composed in order to maximize the overall energy balance if PV-modules are integrated, which typically work better at low temperatures?
