|Publication Date:||1 April 2006|
|ICS Code (Doors and windows):||91.060.50|
This specification covers voluntary performance requirements and methods of test for the resistance to forced entry of window and door assemblies. This specification addresses the capability of window and door assemblies to frustrate opportunistic entry by unskilled and semi-skilled intruders. This specification does not address detention facilities or window and door assemblies attacked by professional, sophisticated intruders.
These requirements are limited to window and door assemblies only as manufactured, regardless of their materials or method of manufacture. They do not include requirements for secondary or storm windows and doors, doors intended for vehicular access, or skylights. This is a laboratory test, not a field test that simulates an installed condition.
This specification provides a uniform set of guidelines based upon currently available information and research. As new information and research becomes available it will be considered.
All values are stated in SI units and are to be regarded as standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only. Certain values contained in reference documents cited and quoted herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
