It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The missiles and their associated velocity ranges used in this test method are selected to reasonably represent typical debris produced by windstorms.
Breaching of the envelope exposes a building’s contents to the damaging effects of continued wind and rain 1, The damage caused by windborne debris during windstorms goes beyond failure of building envelope components such as windows, doors, and curtain walls.

Note 1 — Exception: The performance determined by this test method relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a windstorm. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.
Values given in parentheses are for information only. The latter approach reduces the likelihood of exposing the building contents to the weather.
Gust wind loads are of relatively short duration. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. The actual in-service performance of fenestration assemblies and impact protective systems in areas prone to severe windstorms is dependent on many factors.
Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7. Thus, there are two options in designing buildings for windstorms with r1886 debris: Certain values contained in reference documents cited herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. They are not to be specified for e18886 purpose of testing the adequacy of the assembly to remain unbreached in a windstorm environment following impact by windborne debris.
A potentially more serious result is internal pressurization.
Superimposed on the averaged winds are gusts whose aggregation, for short periods of time ranging from fractions of seconds to a few seconds may move at e18886 higher speeds than the averaged winds. Values given in parentheses are for information only. For example, if window glass is likely to be broken by missiles during a windstorm, this is considered to be an opening.

ASTM E1886 – 13a
This test method is applicable to the design of entire fenestration or impact protection systems assemblies and their installation. Other test methods, such as Test Methods E and E, do not model gust loadings. It is appropriate to test the strength of the assembly for a time duration representative of sustained winds and gusts in a windstorm. However, these test methods do not account for other factors such as impact from windborne debris followed by fluctuating pressures associated with a adtm windstorm environment.

Certain values contained in reference documents w1886 herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user. A missile propulsion device, an air pressure system, and a test chamber are used to model some conditions which may be representative of windborne debris and pressures in a windstorm environment. The resistance of fenestration or impact protective systems assemblies to wind loading after impact depends upon product design, installation, load magnitude, duration, and repetition.
A missile propulsion device, an air pressure system, and a test chamber are used to model some conditions which may be representative of windborne debris and pressures in a windstorm environment.
Wind pressures related to building design, wind intensity versus duration, frequency of occurrence, and other factors are considered. Typical debris in hurricanes consists of missiles including, but not limited to, roof gravel, roof tiles, signage, portions of damaged structures, ast lumber, roofing materials, and sheet metal 4, 7, 9.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. However, if doors and windows and their supports are designed to resist specified loads and the glass is protected by a screen or barrier, they need not be considered openings. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
