ANSI/WDMA I.S. 1A-21 Interior Architectural Wood Flush Doors

ANSI/WDMA I.S.1A-21 -Industry Standard for Interior Architectural Wood Flush Doors is a general industry standard that establishes expectations for the performance and aesthetic attributes of architectural wood flush doors. The architectural wood flush door standard is a voluntary industry standard based upon generally accepted industry practices used to provide guidance to architects, designers and specifiers to clearly identify the aesthetic and structural performance of an interior wood flush door for a particular opening. This standard describes the various functions and performance levels that attributed based upon the flush wood door construction. Furthermore, the standard describes the manner in which aesthetics are primarily controlled by the species, veneer cut, matching of veneers and finish selected, or by the laminate selected.

The purpose of this publication is to:

  • Provide a logical, simple system of references, keyed to guide specifications, which will enable the architect to specify wood flush doors thoroughly, precisely, and accurately.
  • Define the aesthetic grades and performance duty levels of architectural wood flush doors available through this standard.
  • Provide general information, standards, and tests that will ensure all products complying with this standard can be evaluated on an equal basis.
  • Provide information necessary for the specifier to identify products and by which products are to be evaluated.
  • Provide information on the proper handling and storage of interior wood flush doors on the jobsite.

This Standard applies to architectural wood flush doors intended for interior application only.

This edition includes all Errata as of August 2021.

ANSI/WDMA I.S. 1A-13 Interior Architectural Wood Flush Doors

ANSI/WDMA I.S.1A-13 -Industry Standard for Interior Architectural Wood Flush Doors is a general industry standard that establishes expectations for the performance and aesthetic attributes of architectural wood flush doors. These combine in producing a wood flush door for a particular opening. Function and performance are primarily controlled by the wood door construction. Aesthetics are primarily controlled by species, veneer cut, matching of veneers and finish selected, or by the laminate selected. WDMA standards require the designation of a performance duty level in addition to an aesthetic grade. Performance duty levels are based on the amount and severity of use. There are three levels of duty based on performance values of eight different attributes as defined in the Section P. It is the responsibility of the specifier to select the duty level for each application. The purpose of this publication is to: Define the aesthetic grades and performance duty levels of architectural wood flush doors available through this standard. Provide general information, standards, and tests that will ensure all products complying with this standard can be evaluated on an equal basis. Provide a logical, simple system of references, keyed to guide specifications, which will enable the architect to specify wood flush doors thoroughly, precisely, and accurately. Provide information necessary for the specifier to identify products and by which products are to be evaluated. This Standard applies to architectural wood flush doors intended for interior application. Doors specified to meet this standard are not recommended for exterior use.

WDMA T.M. 6-14 Adhesive Durability

WDMA T.M. 6-14 Test Method for Determining the Durability of Adhesives Used in Doors under Accelerated Aging Conditions establishes standard methods to determine the durability of adhesive bonds between plies of wood by exposing test specimens to cyclic conditions of extremes in temperature and humidity. The durability of these bonds is crucial to the performance of the door in the field. This standard will not determine the useful age of doors in service as a result of the data obtained during this test, it will, however, indicate what the effects of extreme temperature and humidity will have on the performance of the adhesives used in constructing doors. These test methods provide testing, measurement, and inspection criteria using common species of lumber and veneer used in the construction of wood flush doors. Requirements are given for Type I (exterior) and Type II (interior) adhesive bond tests. Provisions are made for identifying construction and type of adhesive bond of doors which fully comply with this standard.

WDMA T.M. 7-14 Cycle-Slam Test

WDMA T.M. 7-14 Test Method for Determining the Physical Endurance of Wood Doors & Associated Hardware Connections under Accelerated Operating Conditions tests the performance of a wood door as it swings in its opening. The test is designed to accelerate the actual operating conditions. This test method will not determine the useful life of doors in service as a result of the data obtained during this test. It will however, indicate what the effects of hard impacts upon closing (slamming) and cycling will be on the door and door hardware connections. It will provide useful data for designers, specifiers, and manufacturers in making judgments on the ability of the door assembly to maintain serviceability under actual operating conditions.
