This Standard establishes requirements for Integrated Door Opening Assemblies with steel, wood and fiberglass reinforced doors which are supplied to the customer with integral hardware. At a minimum, they shall include a door, frame, hanging device, and latching mechanism.
Performance requirements include operational, cycle, abuse and optional security tests.
Tests described in this Standard are performed under laboratory conditions. In actual usage, results may vary because of installation, maintenance and environmental conditions.
Assemblies provided for fire protection shall have components that have been tested and listed for use on fire door openings by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and shall be under an in-plant follow-up inspection program.
The tests in this Standard were selected to verify the performance and interaction of the door/frame/hardware assembly in a way not covered in their component standards. Hardware components shall be certified to the requirements of the applicable ANSI/BHMA Standards where a certification program is provided. The grade of the hardware components shall be equal to or higher than the grade of the integrated door opening assembly.
