Side Hinged Exterior Door Systems Standard Open for Public Comment

May 16th, 2017 by Tara Taffera

The World Millwork Alliance’s (WMA) Voluntary Standard, ANSI/WMA 100-2016, “Standard Method of Determining Structural Performance Ratings of Side-Hinged Exterior Door Systems (SHEDS) and Procedures for Component Substitution” is undergoing a 5-year revision cycle. The draft standard, incorporating several revisions proposed by WMA’s Industry Standards and Certification Committee, is now available for public comment.

ANSI/WMA 100 was developed by the WMA to provide door pre-hangers and distributors a means by which to test and rate the structural performance of a SHEDS, and substitute or qualify components in that rated SHEDS.

All of the proposed changes may be found in the document.

Comments should be emailed to Jessica Ferris, director of codes and standards at The public comment period ends June 19, 2017.
