SES was hired by Advanced Performance Glass, Inc. to perform water spray quality testing on three selected areas of installed curtain wall and one selected area of installed storefront window. By testing envelope components early, and according to performance-based standards, many specific installation and component problems that would not be visually detected can be identified and corrected before they become systemic. The two tests that were conducted were:
ASTM E 783 Standard Test Method for Field Measurement of Air Leakage Through Installed Exterior Windows and Doors
ASTM E 1105 Standard Test Method for Field Determination of Water Penetration of Installed Exterior Windows, Skylights, Doors, and Curtain Walls, by Uniform or Cyclic Static Air Pressure Difference
