Fire resistance and smoke control tests for door, shutter and openable window assemblies and elements of building hardware - Part 2: Fire resistance characterisation test for elements of building hardware

This European Standard specifies a method for characterizing the influence on fire performance of items of building hardware for incorporation into hinged or pivoted vertically installed fire door assemblies (having either one or two leaves) or vertically installed openable window assemblies, of known fire resistance of up to and including 240 minutes integrity (and where relevant insulation) in accordance with EN 1634-1. It applies to the testing of building hardware for use on hinged and pivoted doors and openable windows which include framed glazed doors and windows, but not glass doors. It does not include a test for durability or other performance characteristics, which should be evaluated according to the product standard for the item of building hardware or as given in EN 14600.
The method is suitable for characterizing building hardware for use on non-metallic door or window assemblies consisting of cellulosic materials or mineral boards faced with cellulosic materials, hung in either cellulosic, mineral cored or metal frames: or conventional steel doors made from sheet steel, not more than 1,5 mm thick, hung in steel frames (steel doors include doors filled with mineral board or mineral fibre cores but not steel clad timber/cellulosic doors). The size of these assemblies can be up to that given in the field of direct application for the door leaf construction concerned.
This method is not directly appropriate for evaluating building hardware for use on glass or glazed doors with decorative perimeter framing. The appropriateness of this method of test can be established by reference to the flow chart given in Annex A.
This European Standard does not constitute a fire resistance test for a leaf, window, frame, intumescent seal, or anything other than the selected item of building hardware. The use of any resulting field of direct application is restricted to leaf and frame constructions which have been successfully tested to EN 1634-1.

Feuerwiderstandsprüfungen und Rauchschutzprüfungen für Türen, Tore, Abschlüsse, Fenster und Baubeschläge - Teil 2: Charakterisierungsprüfungen zum Feuerwiderstand von Baubeschlägen

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Verfahren fest, um den Einfluss von Beschlägen, die zum Einbau an ein- und zweiflügeligen vertikalen Drehflügeltüren und -fenster vorgesehen sind, auf die Leistungs¬fähigkeit von Feuerschutzabschlüssen bei Brandbeanspruchung zu ermitteln. Es handelt sich um Anlagen mit bekannter Feuerwiderstandsdauer bis einschließlich 240 min zur Sicherstellung des Raumabschlusses (und falls zutreffend der Wärmedämmung) nach EN 1634-1. Diese Norm findet Anwendung bei der Prüfung von Beschlägen, die für den Einsatz an drehbaren Türen, die teilweise verglast sein können, und Fenstern vorgesehen sind. Diese Norm gilt nicht für Glastüren. Eine Prüfung der Dauerfunktionstüchtigkeit oder andere leistungsbezogene Eigenschaften sollte entsprechendgemäß der Produktnorm für den Beschlag bzw. gemäßentsprechend den Angaben in EN 14600 durchgeführt werden.
Das Verfahren ist zur Charakterisierung von Beschlägen geeignet, die für den Einsatz an nicht metallischen Tür- oder Fensteranlagen aus Holzwerkstoffen oder Mineralstoffplatten mit Beschichtung aus Holzwerkstoffen vorgesehen sind, wobei die Zargen entweder aus Holzwerkstoffen, mineralstoffhaltiger Kernbauweise oder Metall sind oder es wird für gewöhnliche Stahltüren aus Blech mit einer maximalen Dicke von 1,5 mm zusammen mit Stahlrahmen verwendet (Stahltüren umfassen Türen, die mit Mineralplatten bzw. Mineralfaserkernen gefüllt sind, nicht jedoch mit Stahl bekleidete Holztüren bzw. Türen aus Holzwerkstoffen, die mit Stahl bekleidet sind.). Die Größe dieser Anlagen kann bis zu der Größe, die für den direkten Anwendungsbereich für die betreffende Türflügelkonstruktion angegeben ist, reichen.
Dieses Verfahren ist nicht direkt anwendbar für die Beurteilung von Beschlägen für Glastüren oder verglaste Türen mit dekorativem umlaufendem Rahmen. Die Eignung dieses Prüfverfahrens kann mit Hilfe des Ablaufdiagramms in Anhang A festgestellt werden.
