|Publication Date:||10 July 2000|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to protection of and in buildings):||91.120.99|
1.1 This standard practice describes procedures and documentation to assist in the specification and evaluation of pre-construction laboratory mockups of exterior wall systems.
1.2 This standard practice addresses design and construction of the mockup; observation during mockup construction and testing; evaluation of the mockup test results; and documentation of the mockup and testing process. Coordination is required between the parties involved in the design, construction and testing of the mockup to facilitate this process. Documentation should convey the results of pre-construction mockups from one party to others at appropriate stages in the process.
1.3 This standard practice recommends the selection and order of individual tests performed on the mockup in the absence of a specific test order.
1.4 This standard practice recommends a protocol for exchange of information between participants in the pre-construction mockup process.
1.5 Responsibility for specific activities is recommended by this standard. This practice is intended to provide a default structure in the absence of the assignment of specific responsibilities by the specifying authority.
