BHMA created Hardware Highlights, a series of one-page summaries for each ANSI/BHMA A156 series standard. Click on the links below for a helpful overview of each standard, or click here to purchase a full standard.
For complete listings of BHMA Certified® Products, view the BHMA Certified® Products Directory (CPD). The listings in this directory are performance-oriented standards having cycle, operational, strength, security, and finish test requirements.
Participate in the BHMA® Certification Program by voluntarily submitting a hardware product to independent laboratory testing to confirm that it fully meets the criteria of the appropriate ANSI/BHMA® standard. This industry-wide certification program does not call for a manufacturer to be a BHMA® member in order to certify its products.
