*Recommended Static Test Method for Evaluating Windows, Window Wall, Curtain Wall and Storefront Systems Subjected to Vertical Inter-Story Movements
This test method provides a means of evaluating the performance of windows, window walls, curtain walls and storefront wall systems when subjected to specified vertical displacements. This test method is a complement to AAMA 501.4. Like AAMA 501.4, 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, in-plane displacements.

Field Check of Storerfronts, Curtain Walls, and Sloped Glazing Systems for Water Leakage
This field check is intended to determine the resistance to water leakage of only those joints, gaskets and sealant details in the glazing which are designed to remain permanently closed and watertight. If operable joints such as those around doors and operable windows occur within the wall area involved, appropriate modifications both of procedure and performance requirements should be made when testing such joints or details.

Methods Of Test For Exterior Walls
These methods establish the procedures for evaluating performance of exterior metal walls under laboratory conditions. These test methods provide the criteria to measure resistance to air leakage, water penetration, and structural performance. If other performance attributes of the curtain wall specimen are to be tested (e.g., interstory movement, thermal cycling, condensation performance, etc.), a detailed test procedure must be provided in the specifications, when no standard test method exists.

Quality Assurance and Diagnostic Water Leakage Field Check of Installed Storefronts, Curtain Walls, and Sloped Glazing Systems
The purpose of this document is to provide a quality assurance and diagnostic field water check method for installed storefronts, curtain walls, and sloped glazing systems. The procedure outlined in this document is not intended to test the rated or specified water performance representative of a wind driven rain event. AAMA 503 is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls, and slope glazing for air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance performance.

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.

Standard Test Method for Determination of Resistance to Human Impact of Window Systems Intended for Use in Psychiatric Applications
This test method provides a standard laboratory procedure for evaluation of simulated human impacts on window systems intended for installation in psychiatric hospitals and facilities, as well as other occupancies with similar concerns. It is the intent of this test method to help determine whether window systems intended for installation in psychiatric facilities perform at or above minimum acceptable levels when sustaining human impact from the interior, to restrict patient passage to unauthorized areas, to confine patients, to reduce the opportunity for self-harm, and to delay and frustrate escape attempts.

Test Method For Thermal Cycling Of Exterior Walls
This test method provides a standard laboratory procedure for evaluation of thermal cycling effects on large exterior wall mock-ups, components, and cladding. This test method utilizes convective hot air to achieve the exterior air temperature setpoint. The convective hot air exposure method usually provides a more severe test than infrared radiation methods because it elevates the exterior air temperature to levels that are not obtainable in real world conditions. This method is not intended for the evaluation of individual components such as windows and doors. Thermal cycling is conducted to evaluate an exterior wall system's ability to maintain acceptable performance characteristics after being subjected to a specified number and range of thermal cycles. The primary performance evaluations to determine the effects of thermal cycling are measured by testing air leakage (ASTM E 283) and water penetration (ASTM E 331) before and after thermal cycling. Other tests may be used to characterize the system performance, but they must be specified in the contract documents. Condensation resistance performance and measurement is not a part of this test method due to many uncontrollable variables that prevent standardization and reproducibility. Variables that affect air flow and ambient air conditions needed to reproduce standard exterior and interior air films are difficult to control in multi-story mock-ups. Ambient temperatures within a +3„aC (+5„aF) range may result in surface temperatures with a similar range. Consequently, the thermal cycling tests results will not have the accuracy or reproducibility of AAMA 1503. This limitation does not affect the overall validity of this method for evaluating thermal cycling performance.
