Windows Performance Results

✔ Pass Air infiltration
✔ DP55 Water resistance
✔ DP65 Structural load

Preservation Windows are certified by subjecting them to the battery of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) tests for air infiltration, water infiltration, and structural performance. These tests are part of the accepted industry standard for windows.* Independent third parties, from an AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) approved testing laboratory, witness all tests. AAMA is a national trade association that establishes voluntary standards for the window and door industry. The AAMA administrator issues the certification.

Air Infiltration

Preservation Windows are tested for air infiltration using the industry's rigorous air infiltration resistance testing procedure. Test ASTM E 283.

Water Resistance

Preservation Windows are subjected to a driving water spray of five gallons per hour/per square foot (equals rainfall of eight inches per hour) at a simulated wind speed of over 57 mph. Test ASTM E 547.

Structural Load

Preservation Windows are subjected to interior (negative) and exterior (positive) structural load conditions simulating a wind speed of over 190 mph (the highest ranking on the Hurricane Damage Potential Scale is a Category 5, which is reserved for those hurricanes which exceed 155 mph wind speeds). Test ASTM E 330.
