Many building owners and developers are choosing to perform field quality control testing to verify the performance of the systems they are paying for. McGinnis Chen Associates, Inc. has training and experience performing field quality control testing including window water testing, window air infiltration testing, adhesion testing, and compatibility testing. Whenever possible, MCA recommends performing field quality control testing to verify that products and assemblies are performing as intended.
MCA has water testing spray racks and differential pressure manometers that are regularly calibrated and are compliant with ASTM E1105 and ASTM E783 as well as AAMA 501.2 spray nozzles to perform window water and air infiltration testing. Systems regularly tested include all styles of windows, curtain wall and storefront assemblies. Our expertise in the design of the waterproofing and understanding of window systems helps to inform the field quality control testing we perform, allowing us to provide accurate and detailed information to the owner, contractor and design team.
