AAMA is the proper test method for field testing of storefronts, curtain walls, and slope glazing for air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance performance. The procedure outlined in this document is not intended to test the rated or specified water performance representative of a wind driven rain event.
This field check method is not appropriate for testing of operable components such as operable windows and doors. The area to be tested shall include, perimeter caulking, typical splices, frame intersections, and, if applicable, at least 2 entire vision lites and 2 entire spandrel lites containing an intermediate vertical member and an intermediate horizontal member.

The chosen area is soaked from the lowest horizontal brace to any adjacent vertical framing. The test area shall be a representative sample of typical construction and shall have no outstanding punch list items or other visible defects. Remedial work involving the use of curing-type compounds shall be allowed to set before it is re-checked for leakage. 501.2-03 purpose of this specification is to provide axma quality assurance and diagnostic field water check method for installed storefronts, curtain walls and sloped glazing systems.

Manufacturer, model, dimensions, materials, etc. During the test, an observer on the indoor side of the wall, using a flashlight if necessary, shall check for any water leakage and shall note where it occurs.
This allows us to not only properly test fenestrations on new construction projects, but also pinpoint the cause of any test failures and provide accurate recommendations to achieve successful testing results.
If no leaks occur, the area stays uncovered, and the test goes on. Again there may be more recent versions of the document.
The AAMA 501.2 Kit
AAMA is sama proper test method for field air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance testing of operable windows and doors. Testing shall wama performed as soon as possible after the fenestration product is installed and prior to the installation of drywall or other interior finish wall materials. For this water leakage field check, water leakage is defined as any uncontrolled water that appears on any normally exposed interior surfaces, that is not contained or drained back to the exterior, or that can cause damage AAMA Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is:
