About This Item

 

Full Description

1. SCOPE

1.1 This standard establishes requirements for Cabinet Locks used on doors, drawers and furniture. Cycle tests, operational tests, strength tests and finish tests are included.

1.2 Tests described in this Standard are performed under laboratory conditions. In actual usage, results vary because of the material used in the installation, maintenance and environmental conditions.

1.3 The intent of this standard is to provide fair, uniform and repeatable testing of cabinet locks. Each testing section of the standard identifies the tools and/or fixtures applicable to that particular test. We recognize that any cabinet lock can be compromised or destroyed by excessive force or extended time or by the use of custom designed tools or techniques. For cabinet locks to be used beyond the scope of this standard, we recommend the guidance of or consultation with an independent physical security specialist.

1.4 No lock can provide complete security by itself. Locks may be defeated by forcible or technical means, or evaded by entry elsewhere on the property. No lock can substitute for caution, awareness of your environment, and common sense. Builders hardware is available in multiple performance grades to suit the application. In order to enhance security and reduce risk, consult a qualified locksmith or other security professional. For applications where pick resistance and other higher security protections are required users should consider locks meeting ANSI/UL 437 or ANSI/BHMA A156.30 for High Security Cylinders.

1.5 Grade Qualifications Two classifications of tests are described in this Standard, Operational and Security. Manufacturers shall indicate the Grade level. A Grade 1 product shall meet all Grade 1 criteria, a Grade 2 product shall meet all Grade 2 criteria, and a Grade 3 product shall meet all Grade 3 criteria in each classification.
