ASTM F1090 - 15

Standard Classification for Bank and Mercantile Vault Construction

Status : Current   Published : January 2015



1.1 This classification is for the use and guidance of those who purchase, design, construct, install, approve, or modify storage vault enclosures, intended for the protection of assets against loss due to forced entry.

1.2 This classification is a systematic arrangement of constructed products, based on similar intrusion resistance characteristics, as derived from available test data.

1.3 This classification does not address fire resistivity.

1.4 This classification does not address the methods of interfacing vault components. Things such as tamper notification, intrusion detection, response timelines, or other issues, typically forming a complete vault system, should be considered for inclusion.

1.5 Nothing in this classification is intended to prevent the use of systems, methods, or devices that provide a level of intrusion resistance equivalent to that prescribed herein.

1.5.1 Any system, method, or device different from that detailed herein may be examined, in accordance with the intent of this standard, and if found equivalent, may be included.

1.6 Nothing in this classification shall be construed to prohibit better or safer conditions than the requirements specified herein.

1.7 Each standard designation cited shall be meant to be the edition in effect on the date this classification was published.

1.8 A rationale is given in Appendix X1.
