The value of ANSI/UL 305 testing: 

  • Testing for Multiple Markets – Simultaneous testing, evaluation and certification options are available for the ANSI/BHMA A156.3 Standard and the ULC/CAN-S132 Standard for the Canadian Market to help you gain maximum benefit from every test plan.
  • BHMA Acceptance – Testing can be used in support of ANSI/BHMA A156.3 Certification via the BHMA process.
  • Demonstrated Compliance – Evidence which shows compliance with the requirements of NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code) and NFPA 80 (Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives).
