Professional services based on accurate information that helps you or your company make the right decision regarding your project or asset.

Give us a call to discuss your next project. Begin your publication search by entering information into the fields below. This specification establishes the requirements for field test specimens, apparatus, sampling, test procedures and test reports to be used in verifying the air infiltration resistance performance and water penetration resistance performance of newly installed fenestration products.

In addition, the AAMA guide provides verbiage that can be directly inserted into project specifications, saving time and effort. Please read our simple purchasing instructions first to ensure a smooth transaction. The AAMA can be utilized if the project requires investigative testing. The Requirement of AAMA accreditation assures the specifier that the laboratory has the staff, training, experience and calibrated equipment to properly perform field testing.

BDG utilizes professional testing equipment that is calibrated to each specific testing standard for accurate results. Then both air and water leakage in that order aaka determined using a test chamber of constant pressure.

The project architect, manager, or owner specifies the amount and locations of the windows to be tested; this happens either early in the project or at three intervals in the case of large projects: Failures during quality assurance new construction 5022-08 can result in unnecessary delays that impact your bottom line.

See our AAMA page for additional information if your project requires to test for the rated air leakage or rated water penetration performance. Water penetration observed when testing windows will be given extra attention for the remainder of the project.

This specification is for quality assurance water penetration testing only.

AAMA Water Spray Testing

The construction contract will appoint a party responsible for the cost of the testing. Water leakage uses the same method while spraying the window from outside to observe indoor penetration. These specifications establish the requirements for field test specimens, apparatus, sampling, test procedures and 50-208 reports to be used in verifying the air infiltration resistance performance and water penetration resistance performance of installed new windows and sliding glass doors hereafter referred to as “fenestration products”.

This guide illustrates test procedures to ensure air and moisture penetration is minimized in new window installations.

AAMA Test Standard for Air & Water Infiltration

Testing shall be performed by an AAMA accredited independent testing agency. What is the drainage design?

Field testing and forensic leak investigation services are provided nationwide. SITC utilizes the AAMA when conducting forensic water spray testing on windows, doors, curtain walls, storefronts, slope glazing systems and exterior walls. The AAMA is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing for air leakage and water penetration resistance performance.

For window and door manufacturers, the procedure provides a uniform approach for dealing with different code jurisdictions and specific design pressure for each size of fenestration product opening. These specifications establish the requirements for test specimens, apparatus, sampling, test procedures and test reports to be used in evaluating the performance of installed windows and sliding glass doors hereafter referred to as “windows”.

It is amaa to the contractor to ensure these testing parameters are established.

This field check is not appropriate for testing operable components. Before testing, the window installation is visually observed. MISSION Professional services based on accurate information that helps you or your company make the right decision regarding your project or asset.
