BHMA 2009 Certified Products Directory

BHMA (Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association) published this directory of certified builder products. Edition published in 2009, total of 368 pages.

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) Certification Program was developed as a means for producers of builders hardware to indicate compliance with American National Standards sponsored by BHMA. Participating manufacturers certify compliance with the standards based on a continuing program of passing the prescribed tests. The sponsored American National Standards listed in this directory are performance oriented standards having cycle, functional, strength, security, and finish test requirements. Third party testing is performed by a Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory. The program is open to all manufacturers of builders hardware whether or not they are members of BHMA.

The directory of Certified products is printed once a year, each edition superceding the previous edition. The effective date is displayed on the cover. Updates, which may be required during the year in the event additional products are certified, any listed products are decertified, or new licensees enter the program, are shown on the BHMA website only (www.buildershardware.com).

A system of type number descriptions is provided in the Standards for each product. For convenience, a brief summary of the types is provided in this directory. Listees are permitted to certify models which are slightly different than the published types, provided they describe the features in the directory, and the model meets all other applicable requirements of the standard.

ASTM E331-00

Standard Test Method for Water Penetration of Exterior Windows, Skylights, Doors, and Curtain Walls by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference

This test method is a standard procedure for determining the resistance to water penetration under uniform static air pressure differences. The air-pressure differences acting across a building envelope vary greatly. These factors should be fully considered prior to specifying the test pressure difference to be used.

Standard was published on March 1 by ASTM International.

ISO 15392:2008

Sustainability in building construction – General principles

This standard was published by International Standards Organization (ISO) in May 2008. It identifies and establishes general principles for sustainability in buiding construction. It is based on the concept of sustainable development as it applies to the life cycle of buildings and other construction works, from their inception to the end of life.

ISO 15392:2008 is applicable to buildings and other construction works individually and collectively, as well as to the materials, products, services and processes related to the life cycle of buildings and other construction works.

However this standard does not provide levels (benchmarks) that can serve as the basis for sustainability claims. It is not intended to provide the basis for assessment of organizations or other stakeholders.

BS PD 5500:2009

Specification for unfired fusion welded pressure vessels

This specification was developed by British Standards Institution (BSI) and has recently been published. In 904 pages you may find requirements for the design, manafacture, inspection, testing and verification of compliance for unfired fusion welded pressure vessels manufactured from carbon, ferritic alloy and austenitic steels, aluminium, copper and nickel used in a wide range of process and energy industry applications.

The Published Document provides the basis for vessel design and manufacture for Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) compliance. It contains:

• relevant dimensional diagrams and formulae for material determination
• requirements for materials, design, manufacture, inspection, testing and verification
• annexes and enquiry cases that provide guidance on its use in domestic and international markets.

The term ‘pressure vessel’ as used in this specification includes branches up to the point of connection to the connecting piping by bolting, screwing or welding, and supports, brackets or other attachments directly welded to the pressure-containing shell.

PD 5500 is applicable to vessels subject to electrical heating or heated process streams. It, excludes, however, those that are subject to direct generated heat or flame impingement from a fired process.

This publication includes all the amendments and corrigenda that were made to the previous edition – BS PD 5500:2006 – during last three years.
