I'd like to build my own shut-off valves because the standard kits you get at HD don't really work for my setup.

Can someone provide a link to components I can use to build a shut-off valve for washing machine hoses? I'm having a hard time finding something that meets the following requirements:
  • lead-free
  • GHT thread on one end
  • Ftg or press end on the other end
  • valve meets ASME A112.4.14
I thought I could use, but manufacturer won't make any claims about ASME compliance (good luck finding their website! trick question…there are 3 of them). Does someone have access to that standard? Only ratings I could get out of them were 125 psi and 200 ºF.

I found this too but again zero mention of ASME A112.4.14 (and pricey). Anyone have access to this standard?
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
