WDMA T.M. 8-14 Test Method for Determining Hinge Loading Resistance of Wood Door Stiles determines the ability of a wood door stile to resist the horizontal withdrawal of an attached hinge. This small-scale test is designed to simulate the application of a downward force to the knob area on the leading edge of a hinged swinging door. Resent updates to this TM include revisions/corrections to the diagram to add further clarification. Also, a recommended test report form was added.
