Lucideon has launched a new structural testing service ‘Resistance to Wind-Driven Rain of Roof Coverings with Discontinuously Laid Small Elements’.

Lucideon offers materials development, testing and consultancy services to a wide range of industries including construction.

The new testing program is performed against the PD CEN/TR 15601:2012 standard and specified for lower roof pitches, weather-tightness of roofing joints and severe exposure.

Testing is carried out in Lucideon’s UKAS accredited testing laboratory by structural engineers and physical testing scientists with knowledge and experience of the roofing industry.

“The modification of roofs is quite commonplace and it is important that anything that creates an extra join does not cause weaknesses or breaches in the roof structure,” said Joanne Booth, technical manager – structures and facilities at Lucideon.

Lucideon’s range of weatherability testing including wind loading and rain simulation is a natural step to offer testing for discontinuously laid small elements. Testing can be performed throughout product development to help inform design, or on finished products to provide assurance that the product and fitting procedures meet regulatory standards.
