Also state whether or not the results indicate compliance with the field testing specification requirements for the project. An observer on the inside checks for water leakage and documents the results. In some cases, due to unforeseen delays or other causes, more than one working day may be required to completely check the designated area, necessitating that some or all of the masking tape be left in place over night. The purpose of this test is to provide a quality assurance and diagnostic field water check method for installed storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems. For this water leakage field check, water leakage is defined as any uncontrolled water that appears on any normally exposed interior surfaces, that is not contained or drained back to the exterior, or that can cause damage AAMA

AAMA | Hose Nozzle Water Spray Testing
Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. The nozzle is held 1-foot away from the glass and slowly moved back and forth for the duration of the 5-minute test. The test is performed utilizing a type B, 6. Should leakage still be found, further remedial measures shall be taken and checking shall be repeated until axma framing in the designated area is found to be satisfactory.
Need help or have a question? Any areas that have been taped due to aamw will have to be examined, repaired based on the recommendation of the architect, and re-tested. The procedure outlined in this document is not intended to test aaama rated or specified water performance representative of a wind driven rain event.
The purpose of this test is to provide a quality assurance and diagnostic field water check method for installed storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems.
Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets.
If aama of interior finish work is required the sponsor of the test is responsible for the cost of removal and repairs. The requirement of AAMA accreditation assures the specifier that the laboratory has the staff, training, experience, and calibrated equipment to properly perform field testing.
AAMA Test Standard & 3rd Party Testing
The tape should not remain on finished metal or glass surfaces any longer than necessary, especially where subjected to strong sunlight, as this may make its removal difficult. AAMA is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls, and slope glazing for air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance performance.
If no leaks occur, the area stays uncovered, and the test goes on. The area shall be fully glazed to provide a completed installation.
Testing shall be performed as soon as possible after the fenestration product is installed and prior to the installation of drywall or xama interior finish wall materials. If a leak is found, the wall must first dry completely, be sealed, and be re-tested. If test area is enclosed by interior finishes, the contractor should expect additional costs of exposing the wall s and refinishing them after testing is complete.

Failures during quality assurance new construction testing can result in unnecessary delays that can impact your bottom line. This voluntary specification was developed by representative members of AAMA as advisory information and published as a public service.
The pressure gauge shall be calibrated at a maximum of 6 month intervals.
A project architect or another representative specifier will select the area to be tested. Water contained within drained flashings, gutters, and sills is not considered water leakage.
This area shall be selected to provide representative performance data, usually a minimum of 9. The nozzle is moved slowly back and forth above the joint, at a distance of one foot, for a period of five minutes for each five feet of sama.
AAMA is the proper test method for field air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance testing of operable windows and doors.
This test is utilized to provide quality assurance and diagnostic field water penetration check method for installed storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems.

If necessary, use small amounts of sealant where the tape wraps around the framing corners and joints to ensure that the masking is complete and waterproof. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries.
Remedial work involving the use of curing-type compounds shall be allowed to set before it is re-checked for leakage. AAMA is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls, and slope glazing for air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance performance.
