New threshold standard from BHMA | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) announces the publication of ANSI/BHMA A156.21 2006 American National Standard for Thresholds. This publication is an update of an earlier 2001 version of the standard.

ANSI/BHMA A156.21 covers requirements that apply to thresholds, and describes identifying numbers, strength tests, fastening systems, and gasketing tests.

Among the minor editorial changes made to the previous version, A156.21 2006 also contains an updated definitions listing. This Standard is useful to architects, engineers, building owners, installation and maintenance personnel and anyone else concerned with the proper operation of thresholds.

“BHMA is heavily vested in ensuring safety and security of builders hardware,” said Mike Tierney, Standards Coordinator for the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association. “By having continual updates and appraisals of the BHMA/ANSI Standards, the public is assured that our Standards are the benchmark for quality and durability in hardware.”

For more information, or to purchase copies of the ANSI/BHMA A156.21-2006, please visit BHMA’s Web site. Purchased standards are available as printed documents or as electronic files (PDF) for immediate download.
