Going Beyond Australian Standards
In line with our commitment to quality, Jason Windows has developed unique testing capabilities, the first of its kind in Western Australia.
In addition to our Australian Standards quality assurance, we take this one step further with the ability to test components directly from the manufacturing line.
Working with our supply partners, we ensure hardware going into every Jason Windows product meets our high standard, highlighting our continual product improvement goals.
Our Testing Facility
Our R&D team have built an in-house testing facility to help support Product Design Development, Quality Control and Quality Improvement Initiatives. The equipment also provides support for Assembly Operator, Service Technician and Site Installer training.
Our testing facilities permit benchmark testing of our current product range and associated hardware suitability for:
- Market requirements
- Wind regions
- Exposed sites
- Material strength capability
- Warranty life-cycle suitability
Door Hardware Cyclic Test Rig
Our Door Hardware Cyclic Test Rig is designed to assess the durability and functionality of various hardware over a typical usage period and can identify failure mechanisms.
The rig is suitable for testing the following:
- Door furniture handles
- Lock bodies, latches and mortice tongues
- Snib activation
- Sliding door lock bodies and handle activation
- Door closers
Tensile and Compression Strength Test Rig
With a load cell capacity of up to 500kg, our Tensile & Compression Strength Rig can test different variables such as strength, durability, security and compression across any window and door hardware products.
- Steel and aluminium strength on hinges
- Winder chain strength for wind load capacity and security
- Winder sash fixing plates strength and screw fixing assessment
- Galvanised steel versus stainless steel strength comparison
- Compression strength on rollers – suitability of weight on door panel
- Understanding design feature failure mechanisms for new products in development
- Maximum load to compromise locks
Wind Pressure and Water Ingress Test Rig
Designed to enable testing of all window and door products, including bi-fold, multi-stacker and front entry doors, this rig offers a range of benefits:
- Simulates both positive and negative wind pressure (up to cyclonic-type wind speeds)
- Tests suitability of product performance for various terrain categories, site topography and high exposure aspects
- Assists validation of R&D engineering of product design improvements or optional hardware changes
- Permits onsite random quality checks of production-built products to ensure product assembly meets performance requirements
- Carries out manufacturing operator assembly, installation and service team training to ensure best practices are being communicated
Australian Standards - Glass
To comply with Australian Quality standards:
- All glass is cut in accordance with AS4667- Quality requirements for cut-to-size and processed glass
- All toughened glass is processed in accordance with AS2208 – Safety glazing materials in buildings
- All IGU’s are manufactured in accordance with AS4666 – Insulating glass units
It is Jason Windows’ policy to provide quality products and services to meet the needs and requirements of our customers. This policy is understood and maintained through the continual review of training, market requirements and glass technology.
Glass is a fragile substance and the safety of our employees is of paramount importance. Jason Windows is the only window manufacturer in WA to have achieved accreditation against the Australian Safety Standard AS4801
