Standard Test Method for Insulating Glass Unit Performance
|Publication Date:||10 March 2002|
|ICS Code (Glass in general):||81.040.01|
This test method covers procedures for testing the performance of preassembled permanently sealed insulating glass units or insulating glass units with capillary tubes intentionally left open.
This test method is applicable only to sealed insulating glass units that are constructed with glass.
The unit construction used in this test method contains dimensions that are an essential component of the test. Different types of glass, different glass thicknesses and different airspace sizes may affect the test results.
This test method is not applicable to sealed insulating glass units containing a spandrel glass coating due to testing limitations.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
