BHMA Certified Products

/Other/sargentlockCOM/support/SAR%20BHMA%20CERT.jpg

The Builders Hardware Manufacturing Association (BHMA) is comprised of industry-leading manufacturers of door hardware who develop and maintain performance standards, and advise on building codes and life safety regulations. Their work is essential to the maintaining security and enabling ease of movement through the public spaces we access every day. The BHMA is the only organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to do this.

Participants in the BHMA Certification program voluntarily submit their products for testing by a nationally recognized independent laboratory to ensure that they meet a demanding set of performance standards. These standards evaluate the operation, durability, and security of a product, as well as the ability to maintain an attractive appearance in harsh environments. BHMA certified products are also subject to periodic testing audis to assure that the requirements of the certification are maintained.

Many Corbin Russwin products achieve Grade 1 or Grade 2 certification for strength, durability and security. View the latest product listings within the online BHMA Certified Products Directory featured on the BHMA website www.buildershardware.com

Look for the BHMA® Certification Mark Logo which means that the product is certified as conforming the othe criteria of its ANSI/BHMA standard.
