Page Count: 13
ICS Code (Walls. Partitions. Façades): 91.060.10
ICS Code (Doors and windows): 91.060.50
scope:

This specification covers exterior windows, glazed curtain walls, doors, and impact protective systems used in buildings located in geographic regions that are prone to hurricanes.

This specification provides the information required to conduct Test Method E 1886.

Qualification under this specification provides a basis for judgment of the ability of applicable elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a hurricane; thereby minimizing the damaging effects of hurricanes on the building interior and reducing the magnitude of internal pressurization. While this standard was developed for hurricanes, it may be used for other types of similar windstorms capable of generating windborne debris.

This specification provides a uniform set of guidelines based upon currently available information and research.2 As new information and research becomes available it will be considered.

All values are stated in SI units and are to be regarded as standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only. Where certain values contained in reference documents cited and quoted herein are stated in inch-pound units they must be converted by the user.

The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portion, Section 5, of this specification: 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.

2 See the Significance and Use Section of Test Method E 1886.
