In situ water tightness test on exterior carpentry

Within the execution controls carried out for the implementation of the exterior carpentry, The most suitable way to verify the watertightness conditions at the junction between the enclosure and the carpentry is the in situ watertightness test..

The purpose of this test is to verify the correct installation of the exterior carpentry on site through the absence of water leaks for an established time., and is carried out in accordance with the procedure described in the UNE standard 85247.

The test consists of subjecting the exterior surface of an installed window or door to a constant irrigation of water that forms a continuous film for a period of time. 30 minutes, verifying the tightness of the window and its meeting with the enclosure during that period and an addition of 60 additional minutes.

The test must be carried out on the exterior leaf of the window that is completely finished and sealed., in final conditions of use.

The instrumentation used for this test consists of a projection bar that applies a continuous film of water regularly over the entire surface susceptible to being wet under real exposure conditions., by means of separate conical circular jet nozzles 400 mm, and located at a distance from the facing of 250 mm.

Nozzles, Sprinkler angle and spray flow are arranged as indicated in the UNE standard. 85247.

Equipment Placement

Once the sprinkler system is in place, To carry out the leak test, the water supply is opened and regulated by a flow meter to obtain a constant flow rate equivalent to 2 l/min. per nozzle, with an accuracy of ± 10%. Spraying is maintained at this flow rate for 30 minutes.

It is observed during 30 minutes of water projection, further 60 additional minutes without water spray, the inside of the window or door, recording the position and time elapsed since the start of the projection of all water penetrations.

Structural modeling contest 2021

Structural modeling contest 2021

Last 21 from December to 2021 occurred, in the facilities of the School of Industrial Engineering of Badajoz, belonging to the University of Extremadura, the structural modeling contest 2021, which could be presented structures designed by the students that, with less than 350 grams of weight, would have supported a load of at least 60 kp during the initial enrollment phase.

This contest counts, from its origins in 2001, with the support and sponsorship of Elaborex S.L., fruit of the close relationship that our company maintains with the university, with which he is currently collaborating on different projects.

Thus, Elaborex had the honor of delivering the first prize of the contest, gifted with 500 euros, to the strongest structure, called "Santa's ladder", whose authors were the students Marta García Morgado, Jairo Salcines Munoz and Victor Gonzalez Moreno, of the School of Industrial Engineering of Badajoz.

The winning structure, of 336 grams of weight, supported a total load of 198 kp, beating a total of 12 structural designs of the schools of Cáceres and Badajoz.

In the image included below you can see our technical director, Victoriano Henao Dávila, together with our colleagues from the engineering department, Pablo Valencia Abbot, and the Building Department, Pathology and Rehabilitation, Alfonso Carabias Antunez, in the company of the winning students of the "Goliath" award, y su diseño estructural “La escalera de Papa Noel”.
