BHMA issues revised standard for Interconnected | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) has announced the publication of ANSI/BHMA A156.12-2005 American National Standard for Interconnected. This publication is an update of an earlier 1999 version of the standard.

ANSI/BHMA A156.12 establishes performance requirements for Interconnected Locks and includes operational tests, strength tests, security tests, cycle tests, finish tests, and dimensional criteria. This Standard is useful to architects, engineers, building owners, installation and maintenance personnel, and anyone else concerned with the proper operation of door controls, overhead stops, and holders.

“Because Interconnected Locks combine product features from a number of types of locksets, members’ efforts focused on assimilating improvements from recent related standards,” says Mike Tierney, standards coordinator for the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association.

Among the several editorial and organizational structural changes made to A156.12-2005, the A156.2-2003 Axial Load Test description replaced the current test, digital photos were employed to better illustrate testing methods and equipment, along with clarification of test intent and methods.

For more information, or to purchase copies of the ANSI/BHMA A156.12-2005, please visit BHMA’s Web site. Purchased standards are available as printed documents or as electronic files (PDF) for immediate download.
