ASTM WK27894

    Work Item: ASTM WK27894 - Revision of E1105 - 00(2008) Standard Test Method for Field Determination of Water Penetration of Installed Exterior Windows, Skylights, Doors, and Curtain Walls, by Uniform or Cyclic Static Air Pressure Difference

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1105 - 00(2008)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.51 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    The current definition of water penetration in E1105--as well as E331 and E547--does not align with end user expectations when associated with service wind loads. This work item will provide a revision to more accurately align the definition of water penetration with end user expectations.
