Leading test centres
Lindab has some of the industry’s largest and most modern technical laboratories for the testing and measurement of indoor climate and ventilation solutions in Sweden, Denmark, Slovenia and Italy. These laboratories carry out full-scale testing in conjunction with customers to test installed systems. Given the increased focus on indoor climate, which also includes sound and light. These test centres are critical competence centres for the different customer segments.

 

Universities 
We have close cooperation with University of Lund, Danish Building Research Institute, Aalborg University Copenhagen and other universities around Europe. And we are very proud that Göran Hultmark is on the Lindab team. Göran has many years of experience within the field of indoor climate, and he has an impressive CV when it comes to research and studies:

Göran Hultmark, Adjunct Professor, Danish Building Research Institute, The Faculty of Engineering and Science, Aalborg University Copenhagen, Department of Energy Performance, Indoor Environment and Sustainability of Buildings (EIS) Research Group of Heating Ventilating and Air-Conditioning and previous R&D Manager at Lindab has participated in numerous studies within this field.
