This test method covers the evaluation of the static load resistance of an insect screen in its functional position in a window under load conditions prescribed by appropriate specifying authorities.
This test method is applicable to insect screens larger than 12 in. (300 mm) in least dimension that can be accessed from both the interior and exterior direction when the insect screen is in the functional position.
This test method evaluates both the interior and exterior static load resistance of the insect screen attachment to the window frame.
This test method describes the apparatus and the procedure to be used for applying static loads to specimens.
