Air leakage from the adjacent wall cavity through sill, head, and jambs of the window frame is considered extraneous air leakage and, therefore, not a component of the measured specimen air leakage.

Such extraneous air leakage through the perimeter frame of the test specimen can be a significant source of air leakage into, or out of, the building if the frame is not sealed against air infiltration from the adjacent wall cavity. Consideration must be given to the proper selection astm e test specimens, the choice of ast test technique when a choice is given within this test methodand the astm e use and interpretation of the e73 obtained from this test to minimize the effect of these conditions.

Acceptable rates of airflow are determined by the project specifier.
This test method is for testing window and doors only. The extraneous air leakage is subtracted from the total airflow resulting in a net airflow amount entering through the specimen. The amount of airflow cfm required to maintain the pressure differential is recorded extraneous air leakage.

Such comparisons may not be valid unless the components being tested and compared are of essentially the same size, configuration, and design. Applicable to exterior windows and doors. ASTM E is intended for laboratory use only. Rates of astm e leakage, as determined by this test method may be affected by: Acceptable rates of airflow are determined by the project specifier.
Care must be taken to prevent 7e83 leakage from occurring, or consideration e78 be given that such leakage may have occurred during the test. The correlation between the laboratory and field test results, and the correlation between actual performance of in-service products and the response to these tests has not been established because of insufficient data.
This method provides a field test procedure for determining the air leakage rates of installed exterior windows and doors.

The test method can be adapted for the latter purpose, provided the potential paths of air movement and the sources of infiltration astm e exfiltration can be identified, controlled, or eliminated.
A polyethylene sheet is sealed over the exterior surface of the test specimen. Historical Version s ast view previous versions of standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
There are various ways of measurement to determine the air leakage rate.
This is helpful to identify air infiltrations so they can be controlled or eliminated. Upon the completion of a successful test, the product meets the performance criteria for air infiltration resistance.
