When you deal with Insol, you get the best engineering available!

Our wind tunnel has been designed with an open jet, high power, short tunnel configuration, specifically to test 1:1 scale building facade elements for structural integrity and wind noise. 

INSOL Wind Tunnel update subtitles

 

Able to generate flow velocities of up to 200km/h, our wind tunnel is designed to fit large 1:1 scale models over its 4 diameter turntable. With full variable speed control over the 4 centrifugal fans, maximum control of wind speeds allow for low speed acoustic testing as well as high speed structural tests.
