"New curtain wall guide specifications are expected to be of particular interest," said Steve Fronek (Wausau Window and Wall Systems), a leader within the AAMA Curtain Wall Manual Update Task Group. "Formatted to include mandatory language, optional language and detailed technical commentary, guide specifications in Section 5 allow architects and specifiers to address project-specific performance and testing requirements consistently."
Targeting manufacturers, architects, specifiers, contractors and testing agencies, AAMA CWM-19 addresses many aspects of curtain wall design, specification, testing and installation with information presented in eight sections:
- Section 1: Curtain Wall System Types
- Section 2: Design Considerations
- Section 3: Architectural Detailing Guidelines
- Section 4: Building Tolerances
- Section 5: Guide Specifications
- Section 6: Material Properties
- Section 7: Testing
- Section 8: Installation
As in previous versions, key "design for ease of installation" issues are covered from the perspective of all technical stakeholders: architects, specifiers, manufacturers, installers, glaziers and general contractors.
AAMA CWM-19, as well as other AAMA documents, may be purchased from AAMA's online store.
