ASTM E1886 and TAS 201
Hurricane debris can be small or large, and damage a structure – causing damage to the building and possibly injury to those inside. ASTM E1886 and TAS 201 are two tests that measure the impact of this type of debris. ASTM E1886 states, “The performance determined by this test method relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a windstorm.”
