Standard Specification for Intrusion Resistant Generic Vault Structures

Status : Current   Published : September 2018



1.1 This specification is for the use and guidance of those who purchase, design, construct, install, approve, or modify generic vault structures intended for protection of valuables against loss due to forced entry.

1.2 This specification includes the descriptions of terms, classifications, materials, practices, and methods to be followed in constructing, fabricating, or modifying intrusion resistant generic vaults.

1.3 This specification does not address fire resistivity, nor does it address modular panels.

1.4 This specification is not intended to prevent the use of systems, methods, or devices that provide a level of intrusion resistance equivalent or better than that prescribed herein. Any system, method, or device different from that detailed herein may be examined, in accordance with the intent of this specification, and if found to be equivalent or better, may be included.

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

1.6 Materials and construction details outlined in this specification are intended to detail protective requirements necessary to achieve the required level of intrusion resistance, and are not intended to address structural soundness or operational fitness, areas for which the project engineer, architect, or equipment supplier are responsible.

1.7 Each referenced document cited in Section 2 shall be meant to be the edition in effect on the date this specification was published.

Note 1:  A rationale is given in Appendix X1.

1.8 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.9  The following precautionary statement pertains to the test method portion only, Section 9, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.10  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
