1.1 General

This fenestration Standard/Specification applies to both operating and fixed, new construction and replacement windows, doors, SSPs, TDDs, roof windows, and unit skylights. This fenestration Standard/Specification is material-neutral and establishes performance requirements for windows, doors, SSPs, TDDs, roof windows, and unit skylights including their components and materials. This Standard/Specification concerns itself with the determination of Performance Grade (PG), Allowable Stress Design (ASD) design pressure (DP), and related performance ratings for windows, doors, SSPs, TDDs, roof windows, and unit skylights and is based on laboratory testing of products in standard fixtures. This Standard/Specification is not intended to test or address the use or installation of the product.

Performance requirements are used in this Standard/Specification when possible. Prescriptive requirements are used when necessary. When products successfully pass all applicable performance tests, a rating is determined and a test report may be issued.

The primary purpose of this Standard/Specification is to enable end-product performance evaluation as may be required for certain US and Canadian model building codes for windows, doors, SSPs, TDDs, roof windows, and unit skylights. Performance-based product comparison, durability assessment, and technical issues related to certification programs are secondary purposes of this Standard/Specification.

This Standard/Specification applies to testing and rating products. The tested rating applies to products of functionally identical construction, with both width and height less than or equal to the tested size.

Programs have been developed or are proposed for determining fenestration energy performance ratings and for fenestration product sustainability. These programs are outside the scope of this Standard/Specification.

Fenestration products excluded from the scope of this Standard/Specification include

interior windows, interior accessory windows (IAWs), and interior doors;

vehicular-access doors (garage doors) (see ANSI/DASMA 105, ANSI/DASMA 108, ANSI/DASMA 109, ANSI/DASMA 115, or other applicable DASMA Specifications);

This Standard applies to welded composite enclosures of cast and wrought aluminium and aluminium alloy enclosures pressurized with dry air, inert gases, eg, sulphur hexafluoride, carbon tetrafluoride, or nitrogen or a mixture of such gases, used in indoor or outdoor installations of high-voltage switchgear and controlgear, where the gas is used principally for its dielectric and/or arc-quenching properties, with rated voltages

(a) 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV and with gas-filled compartments with design pressure greater than 3 bar (gauge); and
(b) 72.5 kV and above.

The enclosures comprise parts of electrical equipment not necessarily limited to the following examples:

- Circuit-breakers;
- Switch-disconnectors;
- Disconnectors;
- Earthing switches;
- Current transformers;
- Voltage transformers;
- Surge arresters;
- Busbars and connections.

The scope covers also pressurized components such as the centre-chamber of live tank switchgear and controlgear, gas-insulated current transformers, etc.

2.2 Production

The production of the enclosures shall be in accordance with documented welding procedures which shall be carried out by well trained and supervised welding personnel. Where international standards (ISO or CEN) are not available, National Standards may be used.

NOTE - This standard will be revised as soon as possible when ISO or CEN standards covering the various aspects are available.

2.3 Quality Assurance

It is the intention of this standard, that the switchgear manufacturer shall be responsible for achieving and maintaining a consistent and adequate quality of product.

Sufficient examinations shall be made by the enclosure manufacturer to ensure that the materials, production and testing comply in all respects with the requirements of this standard and ISO 6213:1983. Inspection by the user's inspectors shall not absolve the switchgear manufacturer from his responsibility to exercise such quality assurance procedures as to ensure that the requirements and the intent of this standard are satisfied.

NOTE - The manufacturer should have a quality assurance program registered to the applicable ISO 9000 series Standards.

Canadian Deviations are included in this Standard.
