Extensive material tests

Buitink Technology obtained the assignment amongst others for delivery the prototype screens due to its ability to perform in house (so very fast!) tensile strength tests.

Durability / fatigue test

A test rig was used to test the fabric and joints in motion and in water for durability.

Tensile testing

We have tested many details, materials, components and connections, using a tensile testing machine, that have been applied in screens. Below is a small selection:

1. Welding seam tests


With these tests the tensile strength of a welding seam is checked whether the seam is stronger (or at least as strong as) the strength of the base material. Never a welding seam has to be the weakest link!

2. Test peeling force

Test pelkracht

The strength of a connection is tested in conditions where peeling forces apply. In specific area's in the screen forces on seams apply perpendicular to the sheet; so called peeling forces.

3. Test industrial zipper

Test ritssluiting

The objective of this test is to see whether the connection of the zipper to the screen is strong enough. The connection must be stronger (or at least be as strong as) the zipper itself. The pictures shows the positive result.

4. Test quick-link connection

Test quicklink verbinding

In this test is shown the strength of the lacing or quick-link connection. The connection method is an alternative for the zipper.The test reveals the weakest link in the construction and the overall strength of the system.
