Scope:

This Standard establishes performance requirements for Multipoint Locks and includes operational tests, cycle tests, strength tests, security tests, and finish tests.

Tests described in this Standard are performed under laboratory conditions. In actual usage, results vary because of installation, door and frame construction, maintenance and environmental conditions.

Grade Qualifications (Also See Appendix A.) Manufacturers shall indicate the Grade level of their locks. Locks passing all tests within Sections 7, 8, 9 and 11 shall be assigned the respective Operational Grade; locks passing all the tests within Section 10 shall be assigned the respective Security Grade. It is permissible to qualify a model to an Operational Grade only; models meeting both Operational and Security Grades shall indicate the Grade Level for each.
