At Apex Building Sciences Inc., we use computer simulations to aid in the development of building assemblies and to ensure that assemblies will adequately function under imposed conditions. Various envelope assemblies are induced to worst case scenarios, based on historical environmental data, in order to determine the most viable options available.
Infrared Thermographic Testing:
Infrared imaging is an exceptional tool for determining the sources of building envelope problems. The process provides an image which helps to determine heat loss, moisture in assemblies, material absence, and material defects. Our staff includes certified and professionally trained thermographers with extensive experience in collecting appropriate data and interpreting findings.
Water penetration testing of glazing assemblies or walls assists in determining specific leakage paths and provides insight into the potential cause of an envelope failure. Our testing equipment and procedures are in strict compliance with testing standard requirements for various assemblies.
