*Rain Penetration Control - Applying Current Knowledge
AAMA’s latest publication is available in the United States through a cooperative effort with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). “Rain Penetration Control – Applying Current Knowledge” was developed based on the previous related AAMA standard (“The Rain Screen Principle and Pressure-Equalized Wall Design”) and extensive research and field testing conducted by the CMHC. The standard provides detailed information and guidance regarding increasing product performance, specifically related to windows, curtain walls and storefronts.

This AAMA/CMHC document includes a section on mechanisms of water penetration, control of water penetration, design guidelines for rainscreen and pressure equalized walls and an example of designing using the covered principles. For architects, specifiers, designers and those who wish to understand the possibilities for improving wall performance, this is an excellent resource.

*Standard Practice for Installation of Windows with a Mounting Flange in Open Stud Frame Construction for Low Wind/Water Exposure
This practice addresses the recommended methods and/or sequences used to apply/modify the water-resistive barrier or other flashing and sealing materials to the open-framed opening. The techniques demonstrated in this standard practice have been developed specifically to create a moisture barrier to incidental liquid water penetration at the external interface between the window and rough opening. Any water intrusion; whether through the external interface between the window and rough opening, the window joinery, or the installation joints around the perimeter of the window will not have a means to exit to the building exterior. As a result, this standard is recommended for buildings/installations considered at low risk of water intrusion.

    A Brief History of the Aluminum Curtain Wall Design Details of Two Recent Buildings Fire Safety in High-Rise Curtain Wall Buildings
    This issue of “Aluminum Curtain Walls” presents articles on two topics which, though quite different in nature, are, in a very real sense, related. The fact that aluminum curtain wall has had an interesting history of continuing development and popularity may be due in part to its having demonstrated the capacity of withstanding such severe tests as building fires. And conversely, the integrity and durability of this type of wall construction are substantiated by its twenty-year history of good performance under exposure to hazards of all kinds.

    AAMA 450-06; Bay, Bow and Other 3-Dimensional Projecting Units

    Interpretation Requested:

    Background…In the 2006 update to the AAMA 450 specification, the exclusion of bay, bow and other 3-dimensional projecting units was removed. Upon testing these mulled fenestration assemblies, several questions have come up that require additional clarification. This technical interpretation request will address the following areas specifically:
    1. Use of a roof during testing
    2. Qualifying different angled mullions with one evaluation
    3. Clarify what constitutes a water failure

    Regarding the use of bay, bow and other 3-dimensional projecting units, the following interpretations are requested:
    1. Is the test evaluation intended for the mulled fenestration assembly only and is not intended to qualify any roof constructions?
    2. Does the mullion angle used in the mulled fenestration assembly evaluation only qualify that mullion angle?
    3. Does water that penetrates the interior most plain of any individual unit and/or mull joint deem a failure?

    AAMA Glossary
    This document is an all-encompassing "AAMA Glossary" (AG-13) that is to be used from this point forward when referencing definitions in any/all AAMA documents. It was found, while reading through various AAMA documents, that we have multiple definitions in our documents for one word (a good example of this would be the word "fenestration"). Although the definitions aren't strikingly different, we want to ensure consistency throughout our document. The definitions were compiled by researching all current AAMA documents and extracting the definitions; this Glossary was approved by the AAMA Document Management Committee.

    Interpretation Requested:

    1. When limited to a two-lite-high single hung window, if a manufacturer provides supporting engineering analysis prepared by a Structural Engineer and follows acceptable engineering practice that indicates loading (i.e. wind load, dead load, point load and deflection due to flexural loading) is equivalent or reduced on load bearing components, does structural testing of an “even split” unit qualify an “un-even split” unit when the lower portion is less than H/2 and the overall frame size of the “un-even split” unit is equal to or less than that of the “even split” unit?

    2. When limited to a two-lite-wide OX or XO horizontal sliding window, if a manufacturer provides supporting engineering analysis prepared by a Structural Engineer and follows acceptable engineering practice that indicates loading (i.e. wind load, dead load, point load and deflection due to flexural loading) is equivalent or reduced on load bearing components, does structural testing of an “even split” unit qualify an “un-even split” unit when one portion is less than W/2 and the overall frame size of the “un-even split” unit is equal to or less than that of the “even split” unit?

    Installation of Aluminum Curtain Walls
    This issue of Aluminum Curtain Walls is devoted principally to an in-depth discussion of metal curtain wall installation procedures. Some architects may think that this subject is of only minor concern to them; that once they have designed the wall, approved the contracts and checked the shop drawings, it’s the contractor’s business to see that the wall is correctly put in place. In part this is true, but the architect has certain responsibilities in this work, too. And without a clear knowledge of how the wall is to be installed, what problems may arise in the field and how to avoid them, there are likely to be serious deficiencies in the design of the wall.

    Recommended Static Testing Method for Evaluating Curtain Wall and Storefront Systems Subjected to Seismic and Wind Induced Interstory Drift
    This test method provides a means of evaluating the performance of curtain walls and storefront wall systems when subjected to specified horizontal displacements in the plane of the wall. The method is not intended to test for dynamic, torsional, or vertical movements. The relatively slow (i.e., “static”) movements of this test method may not produce the same results as would be obtained in a dynamic movement test. This test method is a complement to AAMA 501.6 – “Recommended Dynamic Test Method for Determining the Seismic Drift Causing Glass Fallout from a Wall System.” AAMA 501.6 focuses primarily on determining the dynamic fallout from wall system panels that are representative of the overall wall system being evaluated. In contrast, this test method focuses primarily on changes in serviceability of wall system specimens (e.g., air and water leakage rates) as a result of statically applied, inplane (horizontal) racking displacements. Thus, the AAMA 501.6 test method focuses primarily on the seismic ultimate limit state behavior of architectural glass in a wall system or partition, while this test method focuses primarily on the seismic serviceability limit state behavior of wall systems. This test method is applicable to large curtain wall and storefront mock-ups consisting of supports, components and cladding. The proper use of this test method requires an understanding of static load applications, deflection measurements, and test fixture design as required to accomplish controlled movements of the simulated structure. This test method describes the apparatus and the procedure to be used for displacing a specimen horizontally. The displacement cycle time is not limited and is not intended to duplicate the interstory displacement rates associated with dynamic building sway and seismic events.

    Sound Control for Fenestration Products
    This document was prepared for anyone who requires information on what sound is, how it is transmitted, how it is measured and how its transmission can be controlled. Although technical in nature, this document is organized to be useful to anyone from the window designer who is trying to meet an architect's sound control specification to a window salesman who just wants to help a customer understand how sound travels and what can be done to “cut down on the noise”. Furthermore, this document will clarify and differentiate between the two methods of product classification, STC (Sound Transmission Class) and OITC (Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class), and their appropriate use.
