In order to assist in the selection of hardware, the members of the Steel Door Institute have combined efforts in preparing the following list of hardware. Preparations
for the hardware listed are available for standard steel doors and frames.
This list highlights the flexibility and adaptability of standard steel doors and
frames. It dramatically illustrates the opportunities for imagination and creativity,
so important in today’s industry, available to the hardware specifier.
The following sheets contain a listing of hardware, by type, for standard steel doors
and frames. This list is based on manufacturers’ catalogs which may, from time
to time, be revised as changes and additions are made. The Steel Door Institute,
therefore, assumes no responsibility for its accuracy.
The Steel Door Institute does not guarantee that preparations for the hardware
listed are available from each member company. Each company should be contacted prior to specifying a standard steel door and frame supplier.
Individual manufacturer’s catalogs and publications should be used as reference
material for available preparations for hardware shown herein.
The listings in no way should suggest that the various items in the individual
categories are equal in price, quality or function. It is not the intent of the Steel
Door Institute to make these kinds of judgments, nor should this document be
used to write hardware specifications.
The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association, Inc. sponsors third party certification programs enabling manufacturers to demonstrate compliance with several
of the A156 Series Standards through periodic testing under the supervision of
a nationally recognized independent testing laboratory. Hardware listings under
ANSI headings are for the purpose of identifying types of hardware and not indications of compliance.
