BHMA Residential Security Grade & Certification

A simpler experience.

The new BHMA grading system lets you decide whether Security, Durability or Finish is most important to you, so you can then choose the product that gets the highest grade in that category.

 

For example:

 

  • If your children arrive home from school first and you want to ensure their safety while you’re away, you’ll want to invest in a lock with a Grade A in Security.

  • If you live in a busy household with constant coming and going, you may prefer a lock with a Grade A in Durability.

  • Those with homes exposed to changing seasons may look for a lock with a Grade A in Finish, so they feel confident that their new lock’s finish will hold up against the elements

The categories.

Security: A measure of safety. Measures the hardware's ability to withstand:

  • sledgehammer attacks
  • attempts to manually pull it from the door
  • weight, like a child hanging from a door lever
     

Durability: A measure of functionality. Measures:

  • ease of use when the door changes its fit into the frame as seasonal temperatures rise and fall
  • smooth functionality after a lifetime of use (approximate to 100 years assuming of being used 10 times per day)
  • resistance to dents, like banging keys or purses against the lock when entering

Finish: A measure of resilience against the elements. Measures resistance to:

  • scratching
  • wear and tear from exposure to elements like salt, humidity and UV rays
