Technical Resources

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) has developed performance standards for architectural grade wood doors determined by duty levels. The duty levels are based on the amount and severity of use. There are three levels, Standard, Heavy and Extra Heavy Duty. Some examples of applications for each duty level are as follows:

Standard Duty: Low usage office doors, closets or private restrooms
Heavy Duty: Assisted living, office entries or medical exam
Extra Heavy Duty: Classrooms, hospital patient rooms or dorm rooms

To determine the duty level of the product WDMA has developed standard test methods which include tests such as direct screw withdrawal and cycle slam. The following chart show the Oshkosh door constructions that have been tested per the WDMA performance requirements with links to the product data sheets as well as the performance test results.
