Test Your Casework Construction Method

Testing your casework construction method is now easier than ever with AWI's streamlined process.
For all testing options, a compliance inspector must audit the casework construction in the manufacturer’s facility prior to issuance of final testing reports. Audits are to confirm the construction method tested is being adhered to within the facility. They are separate from a typical qcp project inspection for certification.
