Product certifications

ANSI/BHMA A156.1 Compliance

The majority of SIMONSWERK products are not defined by BHMA standards because there are no standards for concealed or adjustable hinge systems. Therefore, SIMONSWERK contracted a third-party company, Intertek, to perform testing in accordance with ANSI/BHMA A156.1-2016, American Standards for Butts and Hinges. Although the standard defines a specific product design which does not include SIMONSWERK innovative adjustable hinge products, SIMONSWERK  took extra steps to offer assurance for the performance of these products.

The following evaluation in the test report show performance compliance such as Friction test, Cycle test, Vertical and lateral wear, and Overload test.
