This report on water tightness tests was carried out under the joint leadership of the IFT (Institut für Fenster Technik) and the CTBA (Centre Technique du Bois et de l'Ameublement). Truly representative windows were selected from France and Germany and their performance regarding air permeability and water tightness were assessed within the laboratories of the IFT and the CTBA prior to the start of the programme. The windows were then circulated in several European laboratories operating in the field. The conclusions for each specimen are reported and the testing specifications employed in each laboratory are shown.
