Fenestration Testing: Field Testing, Lab Testing & Product Certification Seminar. Building enclosure engineers and others involved with fenestration testing for buildings will be interested in this seminar on testing methods and product certification for products rated to the North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS). Leading practitioners in this field will describe and explore the conditions under which product testing takes place. Speakers will address both lab and field test methods and examine how to interpret-or how not to interpret-their results. Some of the topics include failure modes, glazing unit influences, building code requirements, work safe standards, qualitative testing, and condensation resistance. The effect of anchoring method and frame rotation on product performance is examined in detail. Applications to punch windows and curtain walls are presented as case studies and help highlight the differences between testing performance and real-world performance.

Hear the inside story about fenestration testing and find out what you need to know about the relevant standards (AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440).
