1.1 This test method determines the performance of exterior windows, curtain walls, doors, and impact protective systems impacted by missile(s) and subsequently subjected to cyclic static pressure differentials. 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. This test method is applicable to the design of entire fenestration or impact protection systems assemblies and their installation. The performance determined by this test method relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a windstorm.1.2 The specifying authority shall define the representative conditions (see ).1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only. Certain values contained in reference documents cited herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user.This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code® and the International Residential Code®.
