Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Glass Wall Test

Hello everyone,

It’s Friday already (the weeks seem to fly by here at the office) and I hope you all have great weekends lined up. For our friends, colleagues, and customers in the states – I hope you all have enjoyed your Thanksgivings and that you get to spend lots of time with family (or shopping all the Black Friday sales!).

Today’s post is our very first video blog! I think we are really starting off with a bang! We had a team of experts in from Germany to do some product testing at Price Research Center North. The team in the lab set up our cold room so that a huge glass window wall could be tested with -30 degree temperatures. The test was part of the development/construction of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is an amazing building not only for the historic value it will have inside, but for its architecture and design:

Winnipeg Museum of Human Rights - Glass Wall

A major challenge for the team building this new Winnipeg landmark is making sure that the glass walls can withstand a regular room temperature on one side, and -30 degree temperatures on the other side without having any problems (like condensation, frost, etc.). That’s where Price comes in! Check out the video below for more details on how we rigged up the huge glass wall!
