FGIA Updates Performance Standards for Weatherstrips and Weatherseals
The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has recently updated its AAMA 701/702-23 document, which sets forth minimum performance requirements for pile weatherstrips and replaceable weatherseals. This move is a testament to FGIA’s commitment to quality and industry standards.
Details of the Updated Document
The AAMA 701/702-23 document outlines test methods, specimen sampling techniques, minimum performance levels, and other key criteria for pile weatherstrips and polymer weatherseals. This document is used to verify the laboratory performance of weatherstrip and weatherseal products, which must meet minimum levels of performance for the sealing of fenestration products.
The Benefits of the Updated Document
Through the use of this document, weatherstrip and weatherseal producers can demonstrate that their products meet the necessary standards for air leakage and water penetration when used by FGIA-certified window and door manufacturers. This is an important step in ensuring proper sealing and protection against the elements.
