The AWI Technical
Committee established
Performance Duty Level
3 as the ANSI/AWI 0641 -
Architectural Wood Casework
Standard's default duty level
unless specified otherwise.
Casework constructed to
Performance Duty Level 3
provides specifiers and design
professionals with casework
performance that they have
come to expect over the
years. Along with a default
Performance Duty Level 3, the
new AWI casework Standard
default aesthetic requirement
is Custom Grade.
SCIENTIFIC TESTING OF
PERFORMANCE DUTY
LEVELS

In the development
of the ANSI/AWI 0641 -
Architectural Wood Casework
Standard Performance
Duty Levels are derived
from hundreds of baseline
casework performance test
outcomes that incorporated
a wide variety of casework
joinery techniques and
panel product material
combinations.
Casework that AWI
tested includes base, wall,
and tall cabinets. Casework
components including drawer
boxes and shelf support
systems and casework

panel materials including
veneer core, particleboard
core, and MDF core were all
subjected to rigorous test
batteries in AWI's baseline
testing process that follow
AWI's Approve Casework
Test Methodologies. Dozens
of unique material, joinery
and hardware configurations
were tested to ensure
comprehensive data results.

THE POWER AND
PRECISION TO
SHAPE YOUR VISION.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES
FOR CUSTOM PRODUCT
MANUFACTURERS

The architectural
woodwork industry is
constantly evolving to
meet the challenges of
leading- edge architectural
designs. New and innovative
products are constantly being
developed and incorporated
into architectural woodwork.
For the first time ever, new
and innovative materials and
joinery can be incorporated
into casework so long as
those methods and materials
have been independently
tested for Performance Duty
Level compliance.
The AWI National Testing
Center in Americus, Georgia,
follows AWI's approved test
methodologies to ensure
performance compliance
with the new ANSI/AWI
0641 - Architectural Wood

Casework Standard. This
allows design professionals
and product manufacturers
with the ability to explore
new joinery and material
combinations that may have
not been previously utilized.
As advancements are
made in materials, new
products will have a direct
path to achieve standard's
compliance through
independent testing. This
allows for greater freedom in
design choices by establishing
a standard compliant pathway
for new materials based upon
performance data.
The newly approved ANSI/
AWI 0641 - Architectural
Wood Casework Standard
is the latest addition to
the suite of AWI industry
standards. AWI - 100
Submittals, AWI 200
Care & Storage, AWI
300 Materials, and

each separate standard
is referenced within the
AWI 0641 - Architectural
Wood Casework Standard.
Requirements for woodwork
and casework installation are
covered in the new ANSI/
AWI 0620-2018 - Finish
Carpentry/Installation
Standard.
Since 1953 until today,
AWI has been rigorously
developing, evaluating,
re-evaluating and
establishing standards for
architectural woodwork
to meet the objectives
to define and guide
requirements for architectural
woodwork products for the
woodworking, design and
specification industries. Be
sure to elevate your potential
and discover AWI's new
standards as well as our all
