Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 43, people in 1, locations in over countries.
ASTM E is one of the most misunderstood test method conducted in the field for multiple reasons: It is the zstm of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
The testing can be adapted for use to correlate potential paths of leakage from within the installed openings. Subsequently, the polyethylene sheet is removed from the exterior surface of the specimen.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. There is a strong possibility that the test method or the test apparatus may, by virtue of e7783 design and use, induce air leakage that does not occur astm e natural environmental exposure. Through our network of over 43, aastm in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries around the world.
This method provides a field test procedure for determining the air leakage rates of installed exterior windows and doors.
Far too often, we hear of incompetent testing companies trying to perform these precise tests with homemade equipment that does not meet calibration requirements.
Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.
Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. It is the responsibility of the user ee783 this standard to establish appropriate astm e and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. There is no 1. Note 1—The air pressure differences astm e across a building envelope vary greatly.
Subsequently, the polyethylene sheet is removed from the exterior surface of the specimen. The acceptable flow rate air loss is determined by subtracting the flow rate required to maintain constant pressure to the amount of extraneous air leakage.
As a result, air infiltrating through the specimen changes the pressure inside the chamber. This testing standard is most often specified to determine the air leakage of newly installed windows and doors.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 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 results obtained from this test zstm minimize the effect of these conditions.
BDG utilizes professional testing equipment that is calibrated to each specific testing standard for accurate results. The factors affecting air pressure differences and the implications of the resulting air leakage relative to the environment within buildings are discussed in the literature. ASTM E does not astm e allowable astm e within the document. Adjustments are made to the test equipment to maintain the pressure differential, and the increased airflow is recorded total airflow.
A polyethylene sheet is sealed over the exterior surface of the test specimen. Whether your zstm is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world.

Acceptable rates of airflow are determined by the project specifier. Care must be taken to prevent such leakage from occurring, astj consideration must be given that such leakage may have occurred during the test.
Rates of astm e leakage, as determined by this test method may be affected by: Applicable to exterior windows and doors.
