How to account for outside test house closures?


Part of our Manufacturing process may include having to send samples of our product to an Outside Test House and waiting for results before proceeding to our 'finals'. We know the weeks this test house will be closed throughout 2020. Is there a way to indicate this in our Gantt chart when setting up our projects? In other words, if a project were to be scheduled to complete during a test house shut down, we wouldn't be able to send product out until they were open for testing. The only thing I can think of is to set those known dates as 'non-working days'. I thought smartsheet may have some machine resource tracking capability that I could manipulate.

Thank you in advance.
