Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

Note 2, Note 3, and Note 4 are being revised to remove mandatory language from these notes. This is being done at the request of the ASTM editor and will bring this document into line with Blue Book requirements, A new section 7.1.11 was developed to set a minimum level of performance for comparison systems using procedure A. Sections 7.7 and 8.6 are being modified to clarify that perimeter clips are not permitted to be repaired or modified during a test. Section 9.2.1 Criterion 1 is being modified to change maximum panel loss to 5% which will bring it in line with normal practice for engineering and code officials.
