NAAMM - DEMA 111910/HMMA 863
Guide Specifications for Detention Security Hollow Metal Doors and Frames
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
These specifications have been prepared in accordance with CSI Section Format: Part 1 - General, Part 2 - Product and Part 3 - Execution. Guide specifications are intended to be used as the basis for developing job specifications and must be edited to fit specific job requirements. Inapplicable provisions shall be deleted, appropriate selections shall be made where there are choices, and provisions applicable to the job shall be added where necessary. Optional items or requirements are shown in brackets. Notes and instructions to specifiers are given in italics directly following the paragraphs to which they apply. Notes that contain permissive language are not considered part of the standard. Dates given with ASTM and other standards were current at the time this specification was published, and define the specific standards referenced herein. When a more recent standard is available, the specifier should verify its applicability to this guide prior to its inclusion. While the CSI Section Format locates Delivery, Storage, and Handling in Part 1, NAAMM Standards include them under Part 3 - Execution.
Materials and fabrication methods are specified in detail in Part 2. Doors and frames made in accordance with these specifications have successfully met the testing and performance requirements of Section 1.05. However, the materials and fabrication methods called for in these specifications, while providing a sound guide, are not meant to restrict the use of other materials and methods where it can be demonstrated through the specified testing procedures in Section 1.05 that the construction can equal or exceed the performance levels specified in this section. In order to ensure that a manufacturer's product meets the desired performance levels, the project specifications shall include the testing and performance requirements of Section 1.05 and the Quality Assurance requirements of Section 1.06.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. Corresponding metric values are included in parentheses for reference purposes only.
Security grades were added in the 5th Edition in response to input from members of the architectural community, particularly those who are regularly involved in the design of Detention and Correctional Facilities and are also involved in ASTM standards development efforts for these facilities. The four (4) security grade levels cited in the specification refer not only to the HMMA performance requirements for detention hollow metal, but also to related ASTM standards that have been recently developed for detention hollow metal, locks, and sliding door devices. These grade levels provide a quick reference to performance standards outside HMMA, which are coordinated with this HMMA specification and can be easily used when writing project specifications.
The CSI Master Format '95 which placed detention products in Sections 08000 and 11190 has been relocated in Master Format 2004. Section 08 34 63.13 is the new CSI location for steel detention doors and frames, and Section 11 19 13 is designated for detention pass-through doors. Specifiers can use either the old or new numbers in their contract documents to incorporate specifications for detention doors and frames. However, the Specifier shall not utilize both systems within the same set of construction documents.
This standard indicates both CSI Section 11190 (or 08320) and [11 19 00 (or 08 34 63.13)] for detention security hollow metal doors and frames until all specifiers have switched to the new Format.
