The Fenestration Manufacturers Association, American Architectural Manufacturers Association and Window & Door Manufacturers Association published FMA/AAMA/WDMA 400-13, standard practice for the installation of exterior doors into residential and light commercial buildings of not more than three stories above grade in height, with surface barrier wall construction. The practice is specifically designed for installations subject to extreme wind and water climate exposure, particularly in the coastal Southeast United States, and addresses buildings that will be at high risk for water intrusion.
