The purpose of this NORDTEST METHOD is to measure the resistance of vertical building surfaces to glancing blows. For testing purposes such glancing blows are simulated by means of an impact body having a hard and rough edge.
Nordtest is a trademark of Nordic cooperation in conformity assessment. The emphasis of Nordtest is to develop, promote and innovate Nordic test methods and pre-normative activity. Nordtest endeavours to remove technical barriers to trade and promotes the concept: “Approved once, accepted everywhere”.
