1.06   Field Testing and Performance Requirements

Optional at discretion of specifier.

   A. Test Units
      1. Air, water, and structural test unit size shall be a representative sample of typical construction
         and shall have no outstanding punch list or other visible defects. If no test area and/or location
         have been identified, the persons doing the test shall select an area. This area shall be
                                                                                               2
           selected to provide representative performance data, usually a minimum of 100 ft . The area
           to be tested shall include perimeter caulking, typical splices, frame intersections, and, if
           applicable, at least 2 entire vision lites and 2 entire spandrel lites containing an intermediate
           horizontal member. All operable components within the test area shall be isolated and exempt
           from the test procedure.

           Architect should insert an exact description of the area(s) to be field tested. Failure to
           do so can dramatically affect the cost of testing. The recommended procedure for
           identification of the test area is to reference an architectural elevation/plan drawing
           that clearly shows the intent of the area to be field tested.

   B. Test Procedures and Performance
      1. Air Infiltration Test
         a. Test unit in accordance with AAMA 503-03 for field testing. The unit test shall be
              conducted at a minimum uniform static test pressure differential of at least 1.57 psf
              (75 Pa), but at a pressure differential not to exceed 6.24 psf (300 Pa).
         b. The maximum allowable rates of air leakage for field testing shall not exceed 1.5 times
              the project specification rate or .09 cfm/SF (.45 l/s•m²), whichever is greater.

           The specifier may require project specific air leakage; however, this must be stipulated
           in Section 1.06.B.1 of this specification.

       2. Water Resistance Test
          a. Test unit in accordance with AAMA 503-03.
          b. The field water penetration resistance tests shall be conducted at a static test pressure of
             two-thirds of the specified project water penetration test pressure, but not less than
             6.24 psf (300 Pa).

           The specifier may increase the field water test pressure to the value specified for the
           project; however, this must be stipulated in Section 1.06.B.2 of this specification. In the
           event that the project does not have a specified water penetration test pressure, the
           value will be equal to 20% of the positive design wind load times 0.67.

1.07   Quality Assurance

   A. Provide test reports from AAMA accredited laboratories certifying the performance as specified in
      1.05.
   B. Test reports shall be accompanied by the curtain wall manufacturer’s letter of certification stating
      that the tested curtain wall meets or exceeds the referenced criteria for the appropriate curtain
      wall type.
