KS roller shutter test rig - Roller shutters in long-term tests

In order to classify roller shutters in its life classes, roller shutter producers buy a test rig by which they can test the long-term performance of their roller shutters. Over a period of many years, the KS roller shutter test rig for long-term performance tests has proved effective, by which it is possible to classify roller shutters in steps 1-3 according to EN 13659 paragraph 11.4.

Our test rig is made out of an aluminium frame, a motor, a control panel as well as a programmable software (optional) in order to enter your own wishes into the programme. Different options such as test cycles or duration of dwell will be entered into the system and can be selected by a touch display. Error messages can also be registered and documentated if requested.

The box can be installed very easy and without any problems. It will be fixed with mechanical clamps and the width can be adjusted very smoothly. The roller shutter guide rails will be put in laterally and will also be fixed with clamps.

The combination motor of the test rig is a good equipment for roller shutter producer. That means, both roller shutters which run with an electronic belt and those which run with a hand crank can be tested and classified.

The test rig can optional be equipped with a connection box for roller shutter motors. For safety reasons, the motor runs only if the top of the box is closed.

KS Corner Testing Apparatus - Corner joints in hardness test

The test of the corner resistance from welded profiles is one of the few quality checks of a window and door manufacturer. With the corner testing apparatus KS EPM 2050 goes such a test quickly and in compliance with standards according DIN 16830-1, EN 514 and RAL-GZ 716/1. Welding errors are immediately detected and corrected before it results in complaints.

The KS Corner Testing Apparatus exist in two different constructions. In the first version the pressure are applied on the top corner. In version two on the inside of the brackets. Both test methods are standards and depends from the test method that is decribed in the norm. In France for example is used only the construction KS EPM 2050 SPA, while in Germany is still used mostly the KS EPM 2050.

The assembly of the window corner into the test device is thinkable easy. At the first construction the corner will be put on the tilting holding fixture, at the second version with clampings seized. By a big plate at the front side the test procedure is well visible.

Advantage KS Corner Test Rig

  • Easy mounting of the test elements (construction 1)

  • Fast use of the corner connection through clamping system (construction 2)
