ASTM F1450 is a standard test method for hollow metal swinging door assemblies for detention facilities. This standard was created by the American Standard for Testing and Materials (ASTM). ASTM International which was founded in 1898, is an international standards developing organization that develops and publishes standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. This standard was published by ASTM F33, a committee which specializes in detention and correctional facilities. This method dealt with requirements for test to determine the performance characteristics of swinging detention hollow metal door assemblies of various styles and types of construction. The aim is to test the capability to prevent intrusion, avoid unauthorized access and to resist common types of vandalism in an organization. In this regards, ASTM has simulated repeated exertion of tremendous amounts of impact energy against a door in order to break through.

The main keywords to present this standard are battering ram; detention security; escape; fire test (door); impact test for door; lock; physical security; rack test for door; and security hollow metal.
