PERFORMANCE TESTS & RATINGS:

AIR RESISTANCE:

Measured by applying 75 Pa of pressure (equivalent to a steady 34 mph or 24 km/h wind) to the exterior.  Interior air infiltration is then measured in cubic feet per minute per square foot of window or door joint.

AAMA

Maximum allowable infiltration:
0.3 cfm/ft2

CSA

Infiltration (cfm/ft2)

Rating

0.1

A1

WATER RESISTANCE:

Measured by directing the equivalent of 8 inches (200 mm) of rain per hour onto a window or door surface.  Air pressure simulates winds of 30 to 77 mph (50 to 125 km/h). 
Ratings indicate the pressure reached without interior water leakage.

FORCED ENTRY:

Measured in 3 phases. First, testers try opening the window with a knife, screwdriver, or wire.  Second, they attach cables to the window or door to try to pull it open.  Third, for continued resistance, they try again with the tools.
