Standard Test Methods for Physical Assault on Overhead Horizontal Fixed Barriers for Detention and Correctional Facilities
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
These test methods cover requirements for simulated service tests and testing equipment for determining the performance characteristics of horizontal fixed barriers designed to incarcerate inmates in detention and correctional institutions. The testing equipment provides for the setup and testing of sample barriers and installation systems.
It is the intent of these test methods to help ensure that detention security horizontal fixed barriers perform at or above minimum acceptable levels for control of passage to unauthorized or secure areas, to confine inmates, and to delay and frustrate escape attempts. Provide security grilles, access doors, light fixtures, and similar assemblies compatible with these levels of performance, with test apparatus adjustments as required to suit the particular product.
These test methods apply to horizontal fixed barriers enclosing
or separating secure areas of detention/correction
