When you deal with Insol, you are going to get the best engineering available.
Our wind tunnel has been designed as an open jet, high power, short tunnel configuration, specifically for testing 1:1 scale building façade elements for structural integrity and wind noise. It will not be suitable for Boundary layer testing with scale models of buildings or other uses such as automotive.
The wind tunnel will be able to generate flow velocities up to 200km/h and fit large 1:1 scale models over its 4m diameter turntable. With full variable speed control over the 4 centrifugal fans, maximum control of wind speeds will allow for low speed acoustic testing as well as high speed structural tests.
Our new testing facility is located at our office in Invercargill, New Zealand.
