Things about ASTM-E1423-14: Standard practice for determining steady-state thermal transmittance of fenestration systems.

1.1 This practice covers standard test specimen sizes and test conditions as well as the calculation and presentation of the thermal transmittance and conductance data measured in accordance with Test Method C1199. The standard sizes and conditions are to be used for fenestration product comparison purposes. The specifier may choose other sizes and conditions for product development or research purposes.

1.2 Thispracticedealswiththedeterminationofthethermal properties of a fenestration system installed vertically without the influences of solar heat gain and air leakage effects.

1.3 This practice specifies the procedure for determining the standardized thermal transmittance of a fenestration test specimen using specified values of the room-side and weather-side surface heat transfer coefficients, hh and hc, respectively.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 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.
