This method covers the determination of the resistance of exterior windows, curtain walls, and doors to water penetration when water is applied to the outdoor face simultaneously with a cyclic static air pressure at the outdoor face higher than the pressure at the indoor face.
This method is applicable to any curtain- wall area or to windows or doors alone.
The proper use of this method requires a knowledge of the principles of pressure measurement.
