Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Persons interested in laboratory testing of fenestration products should reference Test Method E There are various ways of measurement to determine the air leakage rate. Our field consultants are properly trained and knowledgeable of all testing standards. BDG utilizes professional testing equipment that is calibrated to each specific testing standard for accurate results.
For specific precautionary statements, see Section 7. Air may be supplied to or exhausted from wall cavities or adjacent construction, or may bypass interior or exterior trim or components in a manner not experienced during normal operation or exposure. There is a strong possibility that the test method or the test apparatus may, by virtue of their design and use, induce air leakage that does not occur astm e natural environmental exposure.

The test method can be adapted for e873 latter purpose, provided the potential paths of air movement and the sources of infiltration astm e exfiltration can be identified, controlled, or eliminated. Note 1—The air pressure differences astm e across a building envelope vary greatly.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. The testing is performed by sealing a chamber to the interior or exterior face of the test specimen, supplying or exhausting air from the chamber at a rate required to maintain the specified test pressure, and measuring the air flow lost or gained across the testing chamber.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Such extraneous air leakage through the perimeter frame of the test specimen can be a significant source of air leakage into, or out of, the building if the frame is not sealed against air infiltration from the adjacent wall cavity.
ASTM E is intended for laboratory use only. The testing can be adapted for use to correlate potential paths of leakage from within the installed openings. Applicable to exterior windows and doors.
The extraneous air leakage is subtracted from the total airflow resulting in a net airflow amount entering through the specimen.
Testing Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards.
The amount of airflow cfm required to maintain the pressure differential is recorded extraneous air leakage. This method provides a field test procedure for determining the air leakage rates of installed exterior windows and doors.
The correlation between the laboratory and field test results, f783 the correlation between actual performance of in-service products and the response to these tests has not been established because of insufficient data. We provide testing services throughout the United States from our headquarters located in Atlanta, GA.
Applicable to exterior windows and doors. Acceptable rates of airflow are determined by the project specifier. This testing standard is most often specified to determine the air leakage of newly installed windows and doors. If you are looking for s reputable second or third-party testing company to perform accurate professional testing, provide concise reports, and astm e you through the entire process, contact BDG today.

Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world. Axtm polyethylene sheet is sealed over the exterior surface of the test specimen.
It is intended to measure air leakage associated with the assembly and not the leakage through the openings and adjacent construction. Sstm comparisons may not be valid unless the components being tested and compared are of essentially the same size, configuration, and design.
There is no 1. For specific aastm statements, see Section 7.
