1 Western Regional Division- U.S.A. Headquarters 445 N. 700 W. Unit 105 North Salt Lake City, Utah Ph ALUPLAST USA TESTING AND VALIDATION PROCEDURES

2 General Information The US market has variable testing regulations and building codes which are managed at various levels by County, City, State and Federal guidelines. These policies and procedures are not mandated or manipulated by any one corporation, agency or regulatory body. Typically, they are a collaboration of historical assessments derived from regional weather, seismic and environmental activity. In the construction sector we separate our business functionality into the category commonly known as the fenestration industry, which extends from Windows to doors, residential to high rise commercial. Fenestration industry participants actively pursued the development and formation of an Independent testing agency now known as AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturer s Association) which was to be used as a means to reduce poorly fabricated systems, faulty construction and installation practices and provide measurable levels of performance used to stem the end users from frivolous litigation and unwarranted negative marketing campaign practices. AAMA is comprised of suppliers, fabricators, dealers, builders and architects. Within the scope of this testing body is the rights of each member to cast a vote, have a voice and convey a respective opinion, right or wrong. The votes cast make up the formation of test levels and evolving practices directed at improving quality, performance and technology. AAMA was not the only agency that independently regulated these practices or targeted the constructions sector, following suit were CWMA, NFRC and NAFS. Recently, these core agencies consolidated the landscape of testing to cover areas overlapping with information, costs and redundancy. AAMA is a voluntary commitment by its members however, in 85% of projects and developments which we all direct our sales and products toward, the building codes and inspection agencies within North America make it requirement of the Architects, General Contractors, City, State and County commissions to maintain and enforce. As a global supplier of Window and Door Systems, we take a proactive approach in support of the regulatory agencies worldwide and empower the industries future through innovation and broadening technologies. The collective future of our current and potential client s ability to compete in an ever changing market landscape is key to our mutual success. Each day our international cast of employees offer insight and vision to a think tank of information which helps aluplast continue its Leading Edge position in technologically advanced products with the utmost offering in value and efficiency. In the following pages, we will help guide you forward in your understanding of what steps are required to achieve a membership in the fenestration community of North America and, how aluplast US Corporation supports your efforts.

3 aluplast US Corp Program Functions Baseline Test Data- Compound formulations for accelerated weather testing is also managed by AAMA. This means that only the supplier and validated extrusion facility listed in the certified profile directory can produce a profile with this compound and claim its test validity. By example, if a supplier has a certified plant in Austria and also has a non-certified plant in Canada but, runs the same compound formula in Canada, only profiles produced in Austria meet the required certification. aluplast US Corp offers a number of generic profile configurations which, when compiled modularly create an element structure of a window or door. To support our clients, we test these windows and doors at the required dimensional range outlined by AAMA for Air, Water and Structural testing (AW&S). The perimeter framing members are typically covered by the AAMA Gold Label Certification Program. (Following pages offer further detail) In addition, our industry offers a plethora of glazing options which falls under the umbrella of the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) which covers U-Values, SHGC- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient and Visible Light Transmittance. In order for us to support our product performance we supplement our tested specimens with ratings using the top 4 glazing options clients are using across North America. This is typically labeled under the Silver Label Program STC (Sound Transmission Compliance) this test data is a stand-alone regulatory test but, required in most cases along with AAMA and NFRC Labeling programs. It measures the decibel level of an overall performing system (Frame and Glass).

4 Procedures aluplast Clients 1) If you currently are or memorialize the purchase agreement to become an aluplast Corp client, we will authorize the testing agency to do a transference of documentation. This requires a fee to the lab and this will be outlined. Each element type and configuration require the transference fee. 2) Aluplast is not the governing body over any agency, because you have the transference of documentation does not reflect you or your organization is a member or affiliated member of any of the regulating bodies. 3) In order to become a member of AAMA, NFRC, Energy Star and or NAFS, it is you re or the affiliated company you work with to register and follow the procedures to attain membership. See following pages. 4) In the event we have a mutual interest in obtaining testing on another element type or configuration of an existing profile system. There is a possibility in joint collaboration within the network of aluplast US customers to share the burden in testing for the AW&S certification. 5) Aluplast US Corp can and will support clients which purchase validated aluplast systems from our US regional outlets however, we will request that a disclaimer be memorialized within the ap.us purchase agreement. The disclaimer defends against clients misappropriating the agreement or purchased products. The support would include setup and validation of the client s fabrication facilities. Currently Tested Products In the following pages you will find sizes and rating of the currently tested aluplast systems, we are adding to these elements and profile systems during Q (Balance of page intentionally left blank)

16 AAMA STANDS FOR QUALITY Since 1962, AAMA Certification, the original third-party window performance program, has provided manufacturers with the means to independently demonstrate product performance to their customers. The program went on to raise the bar even higher by earning ANSI-accreditation in 1972 a credential still maintained today. The AAMA Certification Label tells customers that a sample of the product has been verified as conforming to the standards requirements through independent laboratory testing and follow-up on-site inspection of the manufacturer s production line. Products authorized for certification and their manufacturers are also listed in the online AAMA Certified Products Directory, the industry s preeminent resource for window and door products. THE FOUNDATION: BASIC PERFORMANCE STANDARDS For decades, AAMA performance standards have been recognized and required by federal, state and local regulatory and purchasing agencies. Today, AMAA /WDMA /CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-08, NAFS North American Fenestration Standard/Specification for windows, doors, and skylights and its predecessors serve as the cornerstone for the interlocking system of third-party product performance certification and quality control to establish the uniquely credible total quality management system offered by the AAMA Certification Program. AAMA /WDMA /CSA 101/I.S.2/A standard is applicable for use in testing and rating windows, doors, tubular daylighting devices (TDDs), and unit skylights, and represents the continuing development of an internationally accepted performance standard/specification for all of these products. Given its performance (versus prescriptive) orientation and its material neutrality, AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2 /A440 offers a true basis for comparing the key characteristics and quality attributes of window and door products. Recognizing that these products are complex systems, AAMA has developed and requires compliance with a variety of other performance standards for components that address total product quality an approach that was pioneered within the AAMA Certification Program. HOW THE STANDARD WORKS AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 rates all window and door types from a material-neutral, performance-oriented point of view. The standard is based on the essential performance characteristics of a completely fabricated window or door: structural performance under wind loading, resistance to air leakage and water penetration, and forced entry resistance.

17 Additional performance requirements are established for specific window operator types, as well as for optional criteria such as thermal performance, condensation resistance, impact resistance and mulled assemblies, against which the manufacturer may elect to have products evaluated for specific markets or job requirements. THE DESIGNATION SYSTEM Nomenclature under the AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 standard and its predecessors directly provides a number of meaningful facts about the product. It s important to note that the format of the designation system was modified in the 2008 edition of the standard, but the same data is available in all existing formats. The designation system begins with the product s performance class which, in the 2008 edition of the standard, is keyed to four levels of performance (R, LC, CW, and AW). Previous editions of the standard included five levels of performance (R, LC, C, HC, and AW). The next component of the designation system is the Performance Grade (PG). The PG rating is achieved only after the product has complied with all performance requirements of the AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 standard. This means that not only does the product have to comply with the structural loading performance requirement, but it also must comply with the other performance requirements such as air leakage resistance, water penetration resistance, ease of operation and resistance to forced entry. It s important to recognize that the Performance Grade is more than just design pressure it represents overall performance to a comprehensive battery of tests. In addition, a deflection limit of 1/175 of the length of an individual framing member under the uniform load test has been established for CW and AW Class products. AW products are also required to pass life cycle testing based on the AAMA 910 document. The designation system is also keyed to a minimum test size for each window type. This provides a uniform basis for comparing the performance of different manufacturers windows of the same class, grade and type a valuable equalizer when evaluating various suppliers. These designations can be quickly and easily used to specify windows and doors. Examples of a primary designator for a casement window include: Class R PG25: Size tested 760x1520 mm (30 x 60 in) Class R PG25: Size tested 29.9x59.8 in Class R PG1200 (metric): Size tested 760x1520 mm For all designators, there is an option to add the product type at the end of the designator at the manufacturer s discretion as follows: Class R PG25: Size tested 760x1520 mm (30 x 60 in) Casement or Class R PG25: Size tested 760x1520 mm (30 x 60 in) Type C OPTIONAL HIGHER PERFORMANCE AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 and its predecessors make it possible to specify higher uniform load structural testing and water penetration resistance test pressures, such as in cases where the installed product will be subject to severe weather conditions or excessive wind loadings. In all cases, the standards provide for specification of optional higher performance grades for more demanding applications. The design pressure and structural test pressure become progressively more stringent from one Performance Class to the next, as do the performance requirements for resistance to water penetration and air leakage.

18 After complying with all minimum requirements, a product is permitted to be tested in any test size for conformance to an optional performance grade (PG), within the same performance class, in multiple increments of 240 Pa (5.0 psf). An asterisk (*) added to the primary designator indicates that the tested specimen size was smaller, in either width or height, than the gateway test size. THE AAMA CERTIFICATION PROCESS The basic window standard and component verification system provide a strong foundation for the nationally-recognized, ANSI-accredited AAMA Certification Program. This program brings the force and the credibility of independent third-party inspection and testing to window and door quality assurance. Under the AAMA Certification Program, the third party is an independent organization acting under contract with AAMA to serve as the program s Administrator/Validator. The Administrator/Validator provides two functions: 1) to verify that the samples of products authorized for certification do, in fact, meet the requirements of the applicable standard and 2) to conduct general administration and record keeping. Actual testing of the product sample may be carried out at an AAMAaccredited independent laboratory of the manufacturer s choosing. The laboratory conducts the tests on prototype samples of the particular product type, class and grade according to methods specified in AAMA /WDMA /CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 and other applicable standards. Upon completion, the test report is submitted by the lab directly to the Administrator/Validator, who reviews it to verify that the proper procedures were followed and that all testing and performance information is included. THE AAMA GOLD LABEL Once all tests and conformance to requirements are verified, the Administrator/Validator initiates an Authorization for Product Certification (with final authorizing signature by the AAMA Product Certification Manager) to the manufacturer, who may then purchase AAMA Gold Certification Labels for application to production line units that conform to the tested design. By applying the authorized AAMA Label to the product, the manufacturer certifies that the product meets or exceeds the product rating. Once authorized, the product is listed in the online AAMA Certified Products Directory, widely recognized by industry professionals as the definitive resource for window and door products. UNDERSTANDING The AAMA Certification Gold Label. 1 Manufacturer s Code 2 Specification Identification 3 Primary Designator 4 Manufacturer s Series Number Using the key elements of product type, performance class, performance grade, and size tested, a performance rating is provided. The rating consists of a four-part designation. a b c d Performance Class Performance Grade Maximum Size Tested Product Operator Type Historically, there have been 5 different performance classes (R, LC, C, HC, AW). Beginning in 2008, performance classes are R, LC, CW, and AW. A numerical designator that defines the performance of a product. It signifies that a product has passed all required performance tests at specific pressures for operating force (if applicable), air leakage resistance, water penetration resistance, uniform load deflection test, uniform load structural test, and forced-entry resistance (if applicable). First measurement reflects millimeters. The second measurement (in parenthesis) reflects inches. Optional, according to the 2008 edition of the standard. This designates the construction of the window as it relates to usage. 4 1 AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A Class R-PG25: Size tested 760x1520 mm(30x60 in)-casement a b c d 2 3

19 VERIFICATION To verify that production line units are equivalent to the tested prototype, the Administrator/Validator conducts two unannounced inspections per year at the manufacturer s factory. At least once every four years, the manufacturer must retest the product to verify that the design continues to comply with the standard s requirements. The painstaking, consistent and carefully-documented testing and inspection procedure carried out by accredited independent laboratories and the Administrator/Validator is the reason the AAMA Gold Certification Label has earned a reputation throughout the construction industry as a credible indicator of product quality and documented performance. THE AAMA SILVER LABEL Manufacturers may certify product thermal performance to either the AAMA 1503 test method or to the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) requirements (NRFC-100) without the prerequisite of certification for basic structural, air and water performance requirements specified in AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440. Products tested for thermal performance only are authorized to bear the AAMA Silver Certification Label. In cases where the product has been authorized for certification for basic structural, air and water performance as well as thermal performance, an AAMA Gold Label with an additional tab indicating thermal certification is used. TESTING VS. CERTIFICATION Use of the AAMA label is authorized only to licensee manufacturers who comply with AAMA Certification Program rules and regulations and whose products fulfill the requirements of the underlying standards. For those not licensed pursuant to the Certification Program, conformance with AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 must not be claimed or implied unless such products meet all of the descriptive safety performance and rating requirements. Any manufacturer may have product prototypes or samples independently tested for conformance to AAMA standards and may claim such conformance based on these test results. AAMA membership is not required. However, unless the manufacturer participates as a licensee in the official AAMA Certification Program, there is not independent verification of test results and no follow-up inspection to verify that the actual production-line units continue to meet the requirements of the standard. AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 and AAMA certification go beyond basic quality assurance for completed windows and doors by recognizing that these products are complex systems of components profiles, finishes, glass, screening, weatherstripping, sealants and hardware that must perform properly and continuously over a long service life. Therefore, any effective definition of product quality must encompass the performance of these components as well as the way they interact to make a completed unit. Accordingly, the AAMA Certification Program includes a system of verification and documentation of components compliance with their individual applicable standards. Lists of verified components and certified profile producers are available on the AAMA Web site.

20 PROFILE CERTIFICATION To be deemed as conforming to AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 and therefore certifiable under the AAMA Certification Program, windows made of polymeric (vinyl, fiberglass, ABS, composite) sash and frame materials must be made from profiles that comply with applicable AAMA specifications for those materials. Profiles must be certified for compliance through the AAMA Profile Certification Program in which randomly-selected production line samples of extrusions are tested by an accredited third-party laboratory for conformance with the appropriate AAMA profile specification. The requirements include impact resistance, dimensional stability, heat resistance, weight tolerance, and color retention as determined from years of actual outdoor weathering tests. The profile producer must also prepare a Quality Control Manual setting forth the procedures used to assure ongoing conformance of the product with the AAMA specifications. At least two unannounced in-plant inspections are conducted annually by third-party inspectors to determine continued compliance with the program. ALUMINUM PROFILE REQUIREMENTS While not subject to separate certification (as are vinyl, fiberglass, ABS and composite profiles), aluminum extrusions must meet the requirements for alloy composition, tensile strength and yield strength specified in AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440. WOOD REQUIREMENTS Wood parts (including wood framing members that are aluminumor vinyl-clad) must comply with AAMA /WDMA /CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 specifications for maximum moisture content and treatment with water-repellant preservatives, and with referenced ASTM requirements for adhesives. VERIFIED COMPONENTS To establish a total quality management system tying together the network of component suppliers and window system fabricators, key component suppliers must assure window manufacturers that their products meet appropriate AAMA standards for painted finishes, weatherstrip, sealants, and hardware as referenced in AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440. To do this, they must have product samples tested for compliance with the appropriate standard at an AAMA-accredited laboratory at least every 18 months and supply a documented test report indicating compliance. If a component supplier cannot demonstrate that its product complies with applicable AAMA standards via testing at an accredited laboratory, the component may not be used in products approved to bear the AAMA Gold Certification Label.

21 LIFE CYCLE TESTING VERIFIES AW PRODUCT DURABILITY One criterion of product quality is its ability to maintain required or expected performance levels throughout a reasonably long service life. Life cycle tests, described in AAMA 910, employ accelerated testing methods to model the normal wear that can be expected due to the typical number of basic operating cycles and locking hardware opening/closing cycles experienced during the life of a typical AW class product. Loading conditions expected during washing, maintenance and the occasional, predictable misuse (such as improper operation or maintenance and excessive operating force) are also simulated. Air leakage and water penetration tests are conducted both before and after life-cycling and simulated misuse to evaluate any performance changes. In addition, there must be no damage to hardware and other components that would render the window inoperable. These life cycle tests are required of all AW class product samples for them to be authorized for certification under the AAMA Gold Label program. Life cycle tests may optionally be applied to other Performance Classes as well. THE AAMA LABEL: A RELIABLE INDICATOR OF PRODUCT PERFORMANCE More than ever before, the AAMA Gold Certification Label is a meaningful way for specifiers, builders and remodelers, consumers and homeowners, as well as building code and government agencies to evaluate product performance quality on a level playing field. AAMA product certification and gold labeling, based on AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440, and the underlying network of component verification provide window manufacturers an added selling edge to position themselves as offering their customers products with proven performance based on a total quality management system.
