Design Solutions - Summer 2019 - 52

As many
manufacturers
are now aware,
AWI is writing the
new AWI 0641
Architectural
Wood Casework
Standard as a
performancebased
standard that establishes Casework
Performance Duty Levels 1,2,3 and
4 as a cabinet's functional capability
to sustain increasing static loads. The
AWI Technical Committee established
Casework Performance Duty Level 3 as
the default casework performance duty
level in the new AWI 0641 Architectural
Wood Casework Standard.
Duty Level 3 was determined from
casework test data obtained in AWI's
rigorous testing program in 2017-2018.
Every AWI casework test specimen
was fabricated in strict adherence to
the prescriptive joinery, materials,
tolerances and guidelines within
the AWS Editions One and Two and
serve to establish the baseline for all
casework performance measures and
basis for the AWI Technical Committee's
determination of each Performance
Duty Level.

In addition to casework Performance
Duty Levels, AWI's familiar Premium,
Custom and Economy Grades remain
as the aesthetic nomenclature and
requirements for casework and other
architectural woodwork.
COMPLIANCE RECOGNITION

AWI's Technical Committee
approved a Casework Performance
Compliance Recognition, indicating
that casework manufactured to
the prescriptive joinery, materials,
tolerances and guidelines in AWS
Editions One and Two is enough to
meet AWI Casework Performance
Duty Level 3.

Additionally, AWI's
Casework Performance
Compliance
Recognition provides
manufacturers with
an option to have
their own unique and
innovative casework
joinery and material
combinations tested
by a third-party testing
lab to ascertain that their unique
joinery and material combinations meet
Casework Performance Duty Level 3.
As such, AWI's Casework
Performance Compliance Recognition
provides documentation and record
that a manufacturer's unique and
innovative joinery and material
combinations as tested, result in
an equivalency of similar casework
performance derived by the AWS
Editions One and Two's casework
prescriptive joinery, materials,
tolerances and guidelines.
Until the official approval and
publication of the new AWI 0641 -
Architectural Wood Casework Standard
as the successor to AWS Section 10
Casework, AWI's Board of Directors
continues to recognize the Architectural
Woodwork Standards Editions One
and Two as the prevailing casework
standard. Approval and publication of
AWI's new AWI 0641 - Architectural
Wood Casework Standard is currently
undergoing ANSI's industry wide vetting
process and is expected to be released
in the Fall 2019 after balloting and final
approval by ANSI.
Regarding the release of the
Casework Performance Compliance
Recognition, AWI President Michael
McNulty stated, "I am delighted that the
AWI Technical Committee has approved
and supports the new AWI Casework
Performance Compliance Recognition.
Until the new 0641 Architectural Wood
Casework receives final ANSI approval,
this new Casework Performance
Compliance Recognition provides
manufacturers with a stopgap means
to have their unique and innovative
joinery and material combinations
tested and documented as an
equivalent to casework performance
