BHMA Publishes New ANSI/BHMA Hardware Standard for Architectural Glass Openings

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) has published a
new ANSI/BHMA standard, A156.44: Standard for Hardware for Architectural Glass Openings.

ANSI/BHMA A156.44 establishes performance requirements for exit device hardware used on swinging architectural glass doors.

Architectural glass is being employed with higher frequency because it is an environmentally friendly building material and it allows for better use of natural light and other advantages,” says BHMA standards director Michael Tierney. “The development of this standard is an opportunity for BHMA to provide further value to the construction industry.”
