Test verification of glass constructions

Over the years, MFPA Leipzig has conducted numerous tests on glass constructions (barrier glazing, overhead glazing, underfoot glazing and special constructions), which in each case led to approval for the intended use of the installation. As a recognised testing body, MFPA Leipzig is also authorised by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik to issue General Technical Test Certificates for construction in accordance with the current technical regulations.
