Thermal Insulation Products
Tests of Thermal insulation products are necessary within the scope of European and national approval and surveillance procedures, for CE marking or during product development and optimization.
The Entwicklungs- und Prüflabor Holztechnologie GmbH (EPH) is recognized as a testing, surveillance and certification body for thermal insulation products according to EN 13162 to EN 13171 (notified body, reg. no. 0766).
The test laboratory, which is accredited according to EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, provides tests of thermal, moisture-related, mechanical/physical characteristics, of emission and mold resistance. Environmental simulation is performed in various climate chambers in constant, differential, or alternating climates. Fire and noise testing is done in own labs or by sub-contracting with external recognized laboratories. The fire test lab of EPH is notified for horizontal fire tests within frame of the EU construction products regulation.
On site, investigations of installation quality, especially by determining of air tightness of buildings (Blower-Door Test) and by means of infrared thermography are provided.
