Understanding Air and Water Field Testing of Installed Fenestration Systems


Air and water field testing is conducted on installed fenestration systems to ensure the quality of installation, the performance of installed products, verify compliance with architect and industry specifications and for forensics investigations to identify the source of problems in the field. This course explores the value and importance of air and water field testing of installed fenestration systems. Participants will learn and understand why building project specifications often require field testing after installation of windows and other fenestration products, the value it provides to the participants, what typical project specifications mean, how field testing is conducted, the information it reveals and the positive impact it provides to the building project.
