This standard is intended to provide a common basis for evaluating the safety, durability, and structural performance of vertical files. The standard defines tests used to determine the acceptability of the product and specifies the acceptance levels of performance. The acceptance levels are based on the actual field and test experience of BIFMA International members.
This standard describes the means of evaluating the safety, durability and structural performance of vertical files independent of construction materials, manufacturing processes, or mechanical and aesthetic designs. The tests are not intended to assess a product that has been in use.
ISO 17025 requirements for reporting uncertainty do not apply when determining conformance to this standard.
