Default performance values for air infiltration and water penetration can also be specified. Any of the following optional paragraphs may be added to modify the standard specification; however, consideration should be given to the cost of additional testing.
 
A.
Windows shall be field tested in accordance with AAMA 502, "Voluntary Specification for Field Testing of Windows and Sliding Glass Doors," using Test Method ___.
1.
Test one additional window or two percent of the window installation, whichever is greater, for air infiltration and water penetration as specified.
2.
Cost for all successful tests, both original and retest shall be paid by the owner. All unsuccessful tests, both original and retest, shall be paid by the responsible contractor.
3.
Testing shall be by an AAMA accredited testing agency selected by the architect and window manufacturer and employed by the responsible contractor.
4.
Air infiltration field tests shall be conducted at the same uniform static test pressure as the laboratory test unit. The Maximum allowable rate of air leakage shall not exceed 1.5 times the laboratory test unit for hardware and glazing types consistent with the laboratory test unit. Performance values may be reduced due to deviations from the laboratory test unit such as product size, configuration, hardware selected, and glazing configuration. The field test air leakage rate shall not exceed 1.5 times the maximum allowable laboratory performance.
5.
Water penetration field tests shall be conducted at a static test pressure of 2/3 of the laboratory test performance values for hardware and glazing types consistent with the laboratory test unit. Performance values may be reduced due to deviations from the laboratory test unit such as product size, configuration, hardware selected, and glazing variations. The field test water test pressure shall not be less than 2/3 of the minimum allowable laboratory performance.
