AMD 100 Revisions – (August 3, 2015)
The AMD 100 was developed by WMA to provide door pre-hangers and distributors with a voluntary standard for testing and rating the structural performance of a side-hinged exterior door system, and qualifying components for substitution in that rated system. In May, specific revisions to the standard were proposed by WMA’s Industry Standards and Certification Committee (ISCC) and made available for public review and consensus body balloting. The ISCC has made additional changes in lieu of comments that were received. These changes can be accessed below, and are in strikethrough and underline format. Please note that comments in this recirculation are limited in scope to these additional changes.
Comments are due September 6, 2015 and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
