1.04 QUALITY ASSURANCE
A. Manufacturer: Provide complete, precision built, engineered, pre-fitted unit by a single source manufacturer with at least 25 years experience in providing folding/sliding door systems for large openings in the North American market.
1. The manufacturer must have a quality management system registration to the ISO 9001: 2008 standard.
B. Performance Criteria: The SL73 Inswing system is approved with Dade County NOA No. 15-0226.06 (formerly 14-0428.03) with an expiration date of 8/11/20 and the SL73 Outswing system is approved with Dade County NOA No. 15-0226.05 (formerly 14-0428.04 ) with an expiration date of 8/11/20. It is in accordance with Miami Dade County Test Protocols TAS 201 (large and small missile impact), TAS 202 (structural pressure, air infiltration, water infiltration, and forced entry), and TAS 203 (cyclic pressure).
SPECIFIER’S NOTE: Miami Dade County, Florida approval is for any number of panels with any panel size up to a maximum of 3’0” wide increments and 8’0” high. A unit with either a raised sill (with water rating) or low profile saddle sill (with no water rating) is approved. With panel sizes of 3’ x 8’, SL73 inswing with raised sill has a DP rating of +70 psf / -100 psf, SL73 outswing with raised sill and SL73 inswing/outswing with saddle sill has DP ratings of +/- 70 psf. With smaller panel sizes and using comparative analysis, higher DP ratings of up to + 80 psf / -110 psf for inswing with raised sill and +80 psf / -90 psf for outswing with raised sill and inswing/outswing with saddle sill are possible.
[OR as a supplement to Dade County NOA or in areas not subject to Dade County NOA, provide from manufacturer that has independently tested typical units with the following minimum results.]
1. Air infiltration: Provide system with maximum air leakage of 0.30 cfm/sq ft when tested according to ASTM E 283 and NFRC 400 at a static air pressure difference of 1.57 psf and 6.24 psf.
2. Water Penetration under Static Pressure:
a. Provide system with a raised sill (inswing or outswing) that do not evidence water penetration when tested according to ASTM E 331 and ASTM E 547 at a static air pressure difference of 12 psf.
b. Provide system with a saddle sill with typical field installed weep holes and drainage by others (see drainage instructions from NanaWall) that do not evidence water penetration when tested according to ASTM E 331 and ASTM E 547 at a static air pressure difference of 5.25 psf for an inswing unit and 6.00 psf for an outswing unit.
3. Water Penetration under Dynamic Pressure: Provide system with a raised sill that do not evidence more than allowable water entry when tested according to AAMA 520 and ASTM E 2268 at a dynamic rated air pressure difference of 6-18 psf for an inswing unit (Performance Level 2) and 5-15 psf for an outswing unit (Performance Level 1).
4. Structural Test Performance: Provide system that when tested according to ASTM E 330 at 150% of positive and negative design pressures with panel sizes of 3’ wide and 8’ high achieved with an inswing unit with a raised sill DP rating of +70 psf / -100 psf and an outswing unit with a raised sill and inswing/outswing units with saddle sills DP ratings of +/- 70 psf.
5. Forced Entry Resistance: Provide system that when tested according to ASTM F 842 and AAMA 1304 there was no entry.
6. Large missile Impact and Cyclic Pressure: Provide system with panel size 3’ wide and 8 ‘ high that when tested according to ASTM E 1886 and ASTM E 1996 met performance requirements with missile impacts corresponding to Missile Level D and Wind Zone 4 for + 90 psf / -110 psf DP for an inswing unit with a raised sill and +/- 90 psf DP for an outswing unit with a raised sill and inswing/outswing units with saddle sills.
SPECIFIER'S NOTE: Air infiltration and water penetration testing results can only be applicable if the unit matches the test unit in the direction of opening and the type of sill. Structural load testing results are only applicable for the test unit size. (Comparative analysis charts for units published by manufacturer show which panel sizes (if any) would meet the structural loading design pressures specifically required for the project. Check for limitations on the use of these charts in the jurisdiction of the project). See manufacturer’s latest published data.
C. Thermal Performance U value: Unit to be rated, certified and labeled in accordance with NFRC 100, shown in manufacturer’s latest published data for the glazing, sill, and direction of opening specified.
D. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient: Unit to be rated, certified and labeled in accordance with NFRC 200, shown in manufacturer's latest published data for the glazing, sill, and direction of opening specified.
E. Installer Qualifications: Installer experienced in the installation of manufacturer’s product or other similar products for large openings. Installer to provide reference list of at least 3 projects of similar scale and complexity successfully completed in the last 3 years.
A. Provide manufacturer’s standard warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
B. Warranty Period: Ten years for rollers and for seal failure of insulated glass supplied. For all other components, one year (two years if unit is installed by manufacturer’s certified trained installer) from date of delivery
