The prevention of water entry through fenestration and door assemblies is fundamental for durability. Qualifying and verifying the water penetration resistance of a building enclosure is possible through the specification of performance targets and water penetration testing. Water penetration testing can also be used as a diagnostic tool to help locate leaks.
ThermalWise conducts testing in accordance with:
