Field Testing Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a requirement for insect screens as part of field testing, according to AAMA 502?

Per AAMA 502, Section 4.5.2, if insect exterior screens are specified, they shall be in place (closed) during testing.

Should AAMA 502 testing be done on a windy, gusty day?

ASTM E1105 states that if wind gusting causes pressure fluctuations greater than 10 percent of the test pressure, the test should not be performed.
