The AAMA was first released in and has had many changes over the years. The testing procedure outlined in the AAMA The determination of the service history of the building to provide patterns in the observed leakage and visible damage and where to focus our investigation. See our AAMA page for additional information if your project requires to test aamw the rated air leakage or rated water penetration performance.

Analyzing the data and establishing a cause and effect relationship between wall characteristics and the 50-308 leakage.

This differs greatly from the AAMA and AAMA field testing procedures that are intended for evaluating newly installed fenestration products or quality assurance testing. This specification is for quality assurance testing only of storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems and their installation.

SITC utilizes isolation techniques to assist in identifying the source or sources of aaa reported water leakage. It can only be utilized prior to the issuance of the building occupancy permit and no later than six months after the installation of the fenestration product.

The AAMA is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing for air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance performance. Voluntary Specification for Field Testing of Newly Installed Storefronts, Curtain Walls and Sloped Glazing Systems Aamx specification establishes the requirements for test specimens, apparatus, sampling, test procedures and test reports to be used in evaluating the performance of newly installed storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems.

The AAMA describes steps for calculating the approximate differential air pressures the specimens experienced during actual wind driven rain events. This standard is utilized for laboratory or interior mock up testing only.

AAMA Combined Air & Water Testing

This specification is for quality assurance water penetration testing only. This starts with a clearly defined sequence of activities that SITC follows during a investigation: This test method exclusively utilizes a uniform static air pressure difference. There are two different procedures listed for the test method.

Specifically excluded from this field check method is the testing of operable components such as operable window and doors. Which would be referred to as quality assurance testing. There are no previous editions.

The objective of forensic water spray testing is to identify and track the water migration through the simulation of aana driven rain events. This specification provides a guide which can be used to evaluate the installed performance of storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems for resistance to water penetration under controllable and reproducible wind driven rain 5003-08.

The purpose of this voluntary guideline is to recreate leaks that are known to occur. The specification is for quality assurance water penetration testing only.

This specification is for quality assurance testing only. Specifically excluded from this specification are windows, glass doors and skylights. The evaluation of the design concept to determine if any water resistance performance requirements were specified for the wall.

These systems shall be tested per the AAMA SITC determines what procedure to utilize based on the laboratory testing results. Read more about what our customers have to say This guideline is for forensic or investigative water spray testing only. ASTM E references the following documents: SITC utilizes the AAMA when conducting forensic water spray testing on windows, doors, curtain walls, storefronts, slope glazing systems and exterior walls.

See our AAMA page for additional information. Read more about what our customers have to say The AAMA is the first edition of this voluntary guideline.
