The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) released an updated document establishing performance requirements for fiber reinforced thermoset profiles for use in fenestration products. This document references test procedures and requirements for standard weathering performance of fiber reinforced thermoset profiles. It also addresses requirements covering design criteria, finish and appearance, weathering performance and physical properties.

Many changes to the document were editorial, and a lot of requirements were combined under one section so they were easier to understand. The section about weatherability is now under the section that covers general profile requirements.
Additionally, requirements for patio door sills and different requirements for frames that are now the same from a weatherability standpoint.

AAMA 305-15, along with other AAMA documents, may be purchased from AAMA’s Publication Store.
