Guide Specifications For Forced Entry/Bullet Resistant (FE/BR) Security Hollow Metal Doors and Frames
- HMMA 862-21
FE/BR hollow metal construction provides the architect with a great deal of freedom in the design of hollow metal products. The architect can also take advantage of the expertise acquired by those hollow metal manufacturers experienced in FE/BR security work. Over the years NAAMM/HMMA manufacturers have developed advanced methods and equipment enabling them to efficiently manufacture hollow metal assemblies, which address today’s difficult FE/BR security applications. These applications include working with the latest in burglary and bullet resisting hardware and security glazing. A number of these manufacturers offer proven economical and functional designs of FE/BR security hollow metal systems.
