Large & Small Missile Testing

Using our IBL-8 and IBL-9, Haag launches small missiles (steel balls) and large missiles (2x4s) into building materials to simulate airborne debris impacts. We impact exterior doors, windows, skylights, masonry, siding, etc., to test resistance to airborne debris during high wind events.

 IAS Accredited for Large and Small Missile Impacting standards:

  1. ASTM E1886-05—Standard Test Method for Performance of Exterior Windows, Curtain Walls, Doors, and Impact Protective Systems Impacted by Missile(s) and Exposed to Cyclic Pressure Differentials
  2. ASTM E1996-12a—Standard Specification for Performance of Exterior Windows, Curtain Walls, Doors, and Impact Protective Systems Impacted by Windborne Debris in Hurricanes
  3. ICC SSTD Test Standard, SSTD 12-99—SBCCI Test Standard for Determining Impact Resistance from Windborne Debris
  4. FBC Testing Application Standard (TAS) 201-94—Impact Test Procedure
