ASTM WK34329

    Work Item: ASTM WK34329 - Revision of F842 - 04 Standard Test Methods for Measuring the Forced Entry Resistance of Sliding Door Assemblies, Excluding Glazing Impact

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F842 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.51 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    As with F588, the task group has concerns with section 6.2. The term collateral damage leaves the pass/fail criteria open to interpretation. Additionally section A2.4.5 is missing the description of the load L2 that is shown correctly in Figure A2.4.
