Materials & Resources
Air Infiltration - 75 Pa (1.57 psf)
Corrected infiltration 0.17 m3/hr (0.1 cfm)
Total crack length 7.57 m (24.83 ft)
Infiltration rate 0.02 m3/hr/m (0.004 cfm/ft)
Air Exfiltration - 75 Pa (1.57 psf)
Corrected exfiltration 0.17 m3/hr (0.1 cfm)
Total crack length 7.57 m (24.83 ft)
Exfiltration rate 0.02 m3/hr/m (0.004 cfm/ft)
Average air leakage rate: 0.02 m3/hr/m (0.004 cfm/ft
Maximum allowable air leakage rate (FIXED) 0.02 m3/hr/m (0.004 cfm/ft

Maximum allowable air leakage rate (FIXED): 0.25 m3/hr/m (0.045 cfm/ft). The window system met the performance level specified in CSA A440-00 for a FIXED Air Tightness rating.

Water Tightness Test (Clause 10.3)

During the 24-minute test period, using a pressure differential of 700 Pa (14.6 psf), there was no water leakage observed. The window system met the performance requirement of CSA A440-00 for a B7 Water Tightness rating.

Wind Load Resistance Test (Clause 10.4)
Test pressure positive load +5000 Pa (+104.4 psf)*
Test pressure negative load -5000 Pa (-104.4 psf)*
Post-test details After the test loads were released, the window was inspected and there was found to be no failure or permanent deformation of any part of the window system that would cause any operational malfunction.
Compliance C5
Conclusion
The Low Profile Fixed Aluminum Window manufactured by State Window Corporation tested achieved the following ratings: FIXED Air Tightness, B7 Water Tightness, C5 Wind Load Resistance requirements as outlined in CSA A440-00, "Windows".

Test Results

Traditional window wall systems can reach a maximum span of 3.2 metres. State Windows' MC5 Unitized Window Wall System is able to reach a span of 4.0 metres.
