ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Flush Bolts

IS Standard : IS 5187: 1972

To keep doors closed or secured, flush bolts are crucial hardware parts that are frequently used in double doors, closets, and cupboards. When not in use, they are intended to be flush with the surface of the door or door frame, giving the area a tidy and unnoticeable appearance. Installing flush bolts on a door's top or bottom edge enables them to easily slip into a receiver or recessed strike plate on the door frame, securely locking the door in place. The adaptability of flush bolts in both residential and business settings is one of its main benefits. When required, they offer an extra degree of security and privacy, and their hidden design improves the door's visual attractiveness while keeping a smooth, polished appearance.

By ensuring that flush bolts are produced in accordance with certain safety and security requirements, IS 5187:1972 helps to improve the general safety of buildings and the people who occupy them. To guarantee smooth operation and effortless engagement and disengagement of flush bolts, manufacturers are required to adhere to the specifications delineated in IS 5187:1972. This is crucial for user ease and security alike. For door hardware components, compliance with recognized standards such as IS 5187:1972 is frequently mandated by law. Producers that follow these guidelines make sure their goods meet legal requirements, which lowers the possibility of legal problems and liabilities.

Note: The necessary ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by flush bolt manufacturers.

The ISI certification means that these bolts have passed strict testing and meet the BIS's strict requirements. It ensures that flush bolts are produced using the right materials and manufacturing techniques, assuring their durability, strength, and lifespan. The ISI Certification further attests to the fact that these bolts are made in accordance with industry-recognized safety and performance standards, lowering the possibility of malfunction or compromise when utilized in windows and doors.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
