    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover requirements for mechanical tests, simulated service test and testing equipment for determining the performance characteristics of swinging detention hollow metal door assemblies of various styles, and types of construction for use in wall openings designed to incarcerate inmates in detention/correctional institutions.

    1.2 These test methods test the capability of a swinging door assembly to prevent, delay, and frustrate escape, and to limit or control access to unauthorized or secure areas.

    1.3 These test methods apply primarily to detention door assemblies to and from secure areas generally found inside detention/correctional facilities, such as: dayrooms, control rooms, cells, and sally ports.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
