ANSI / AMD 100World Millwork Alliance is a standards-developing organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). In 2009, we developed the AMD 100, a proactive and voluntary performance standard for side-hinged exterior doors (SHEDs).
What is the ANSI/AMD 100 Standard for Side-Hinged Exterior Doors?
- Approved as an American National Standard by ANSI
- Uses the ASTM E330 test method to obtain a full system design pressure rating
- Defines methods for qualifying door system components for substitution in the rated system
- Outlines slab stiffness testing procedures for use in determining component substitution
- It is fair, accurate, and reliable
- It can be used to meet testing and labeling wind load requirements in the International Residential Code (IRC)
- It provides procedures for component qualification and substitution, which makes it cost-effective for door pre-hangers as it limits the amount of testing required
- Get certified to the AMD 100 standard through WMA’s Certification Program
A technical interpretation is defined as a written explanation of the meaning of a specific provision of the standard as determined by either the WMA Interpretations Policy Committee (IPC) or by the WMA Director of Codes and Standards, in response to a written request. The requester shall decide whether to request an ‘official’ or ‘unofficial’ interpretation. See our Quick Guide below.
