WDMA Door Standard Open for Public BallotJuly 13th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
WDMA I.S.6A-11, Industry Standard for Architectural Stile and Rail Doors and WDMA I.S.1A-11, Industry Standard for Architectural Wood Flush Doors, are now open for ballot for recognition as American National Standards.
WDMA I.S.6A-11 defines the aesthetic grades and performance duty levels for interior architectural wood stile and rail doors. WDMA I.S.1A-11 defines the aesthetic grades and performance duty levels for interior architectural wood flush doors. They provide standard requirements and tests to ensure all products complying with the standard are evaluated on an equal basis, and provides a logical system of references, keyed to a guide specification, to facilitate thorough, precise and accurate architectural specifications, according to the Window and Door Manufacturers Association.
The two WDMA standards were developed by the members of the WDMA National Architectural Door Council, and are an update and replacement for the former standards WDMA I.S.6A-08 and WDMA I.S.1A-04, respectively. The revised standards coordinate their content and are also in-line with the 2009 Architectural Woodwork Standards.
The ballot deadline is September 12, 2012.
