Beason Brackin offers a wide range of structural and thermal testing that includes standard driven tests and unique application testing. While Beason Brackin performs standard, routine testing, most of the testing services performed are focused on highly specialized, one-off custom tests for both common and unique applications. Below are examples of Beason Brackin’s scope of services for testing.


  • Uniform pressure testing for architectural applications (typically less than 300 psf)
  • High-pressure testing for unique applications (up to 15,000 psi)
  • Vertical axis edge-strength testing
  • Biaxial-Stress testing
  • Four-point beam testing
  • Thermal stress testing for full-scale glass plates
  • Subscale thermal stress testing for glass components and edge strength
  • Thermal performance and parameter evaluations
  • Testing and evaluation of in-service glass systems

Roadside Safety & Physical Security:

  • Dynamic load testing
  • Static load testing
  • Quasi-static load testing
  • Full-scale crash test facilitation (MASH, NCHRP Report 350, ASTM F2656/F3016, etc.)
  • Pendulum and Bogie testing
  • Drop testing
  • Surrogate Vehicle Testing (ASTM F3016)
