Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 January 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 10
ICS Code (Doors and windows): 91.060.50
scope:

This test method describes the determination of the structural performance of exterior windows, doors, skylights, and curtain walls under cyclic air pressure differential, using a test chamber. This test method is applicable to all curtain wall assemblies, including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components.2

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.

Procedure A shall be used for life cycle test loads.

Procedure B shall be used for wind event test loads.

The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.

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

1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings and is the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E06.51 on Performance of Windows, Doors, Skylights and Curtain Walls.

Current edition approved Jan. 1, 2014. Published January 2014. Originally approved in 1988. Last previous edition approved in 2006 as E1233 - 06. DOI: 10.1520/E1233_E1233M-14.
