Product Testing

At PDQ, we never take quality for granted. All of our product lines are tested not just to meet ANSI BHMA standards, but to EXCEED them.



This graph represents a test of the PDQ MR Mortise lock, which ran for 11 million cycles before failure. The test runs 24/7 without stopping until the lock fails. To reach 11 million cycles, the testing took 22 months, or 1 year and 10 months of constant testing.
