BORED AND PREASSEMBLED LOCKS AND LATCHES
This Standard establishes performance requirements for bored and preassembled locks and latches, and includes cycle tests, strength tests, operational tests, security tests, material evaluation tests, finish tests, and dimensional criteria.
Tests described in this Standard are performed under laboratory conditions. In actual usage, results vary because of installation, door and frame construction, maintenance and environmental conditions.
Grade Qualifications Manufacturers shall indicate the Grade level of their locks. Locks shall meet all tests for their grade listing. A Grade 1 lock shall meet all Grade 1 criteria, a Grade 2 lock shall meet all Grade 2 criteria, and a Grade 3 lock shall meet all Grade 3 criteria.
