1.1 This Standard establishes performance requirements for Mortise Locks and Latches and includes operational, cycle, strength, material evaluation, security, and finish tests, and dimensional criteria.
1.2 Tests described in this Standard are performed under laboratory conditions. In actual usage, results may vary because of installation, maintenance, and environmental conditions.
1.4 Grade Qualifications
1.4.1 Two classifications of Grades are described in this Standard. Manufacturers shall indicate separately, for both an Operational Grade and a Security Grade level of mortise locks and latches. The minimum acceptable grade level for Operational and Security grades shall be a grade 3.
