Description / Abstract:

This test method describes the determination of the structural performance of exterior windows, doors, skylights, and curtain walls under uniform static air pressure differences, using a test chamber. This test method is applicable to curtain wall assemblies including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components.

This test method is intended only for evaluating the structural performance associated with the specified test specimen and not the structural performance of adjacent construction.

The proper use of this test method requires a knowledge of the principles of pressure and deflection measurement.

This test method describes the apparatus and the procedure to be used for applying uniformly distributed test loads to a specimen.

Procedure A (see 11.2) shall be used when a load-deflection curve is not required.

Procedure B (see 11.3) shall be used when a load-deflection curve is required.

The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory materials. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Section 7.
