International Door and Window Laboratories Pty Ltd was established in 2008 in Australia due to increased demand in the Australian and International Door Hardware Industry and the Door and Window fabrication industry, where certified testing compliance to Australian, New Zealand and European standards and building codes has become mandatory in the markets its clients operate.

To assist with this increased demand, IDWL has achieved internationally recognised NATA accreditation for weather testing and smoke testing of doors and windows. Accreditation No. 16929.

More recently, IDWL commissioned the very latest EN ISO 10140 series acoustic test laboratory.

IDWL’s state of the art testing facilities is backed by a team of engineers and technicians that have over 40 years’ experience in the door and window sealing industry.
