Things about ASTM-EF588-14: Standard test methods for measuring the forced entry resistance of window assemblies, excluding glazing impact.
1.1 These test methods cover the ability of window assemblies of various types to restrain, delay, or frustrate forced entry.
1.2 For purposes of these test methods, window assemblies are defined as described in 1.2.1 – 1.2.5 and as shown in Fig. 1. Window assemblies with a combination of operable sash and fixed panes (lites) shall be classified and tested separately for each type.
1.2.1 Type A—A window assembly that incorporates one or more sash that opens by sliding, either vertically or horizontally within the plane of the wall.
1.2.2 Type B—A window assembly that incorporates one or more sash that is hinged at or near two corners of the sash and that opens toward the exterior (outswinging) or toward the interior (inswinging).
1.2.3 Type C—A window assembly that incorporates one or more sash that is pivoted so that part of the sash opens toward the interior and part of it opens toward the exterior.
1.2.4 Type D—A window assembly that incorporates one or more fixed panes (lites) or stationary sash that are designed not to open.
1.2.5 Type E—A window assembly that incorporates a series of overlapping horizontal louvers that are pivoted simultaneously by a common actuator so that the bottom edge of each louver swings outward and the top edge swings inward during operation.
