Test Performance for Hurricane Test (Official Results)


Testing was performed from June 3, 2011 to June 17, 2011. Testing was preformed and evaluated to:

ASTM E1886-08 “Standard Test Method for Performance of Exterior Windows, Curtain Walls, Doors, and Impact Protective Systems Impacted by Missile(s) and exposed to Cyclic Pressure Differentials”
(ASTM E1886) and ASTM E1996-08 “Standard Specification for Performance of Exterior Windows, Curtain Walls, Doors and Impact Protective Systems Impacted by Windborne Debris in Hurricanes”
(ASTM E1996) as well as to TAS 201 “Impact Test Procedures” and TAS 203 “Criteria for Testing Products Subject to Cyclic Wind Pressure loading”

TEST CRITERIA RESULTS
First Test Impact Resistance Pass (Wind Zone 4 for ASTM
First Test Wind Load Cycling @ 70 psf Design Load Pass
Second Test Wind Load Cycling @ 100 psf Design Load Pass

 

Our Official Lineup Of C3 Systems

C3 SYSTEM TEST RESULT GLASS SPEC
C3 Storm 45 (DP45 Design Pressure & DP70 Water) 1” I.G.
C3 Storm 70 * (DP70 Design Pressure & DP70 Water) 1” I.G.
C3 Hurricane 100 * DP100 Design Pressure (Non Water). + Impact / Cycle 9/16” Hurricane Glass (SentryGlas®)

PLEASE NOTE: The C3 Storm 70 and C3 Hurricane 100 had the same additional hardware and special frame installation details applied to each system in order to reach the above test results. Extra hardware included on the test unit (3L1R) were one extra twinpoint on #2 panel and wrap around shootbolts on the active #4 panel and wrap around shootbolts on #3 panel. Panel numbers determined from left to right, viewing system from exterior side. The C3 Storm 45 and C3 Storm 70 Test units were different from the C3 Hurricane 100 Test unit.
