4 Determination of the field of extended application
4.1 General
4.1.1 Before there can be any consideration for extended application (EXAP), at least one
representative doorset shall have been tested in accordance with EN 1634-1 to achieve a test result which
could generate a fire resistance classification in accordance with EN 13501-2 at least equal to the fire
resistance classification subsequently required from extended application considerations.
4.1.2 A review of the doorset construction parameters can indicate that one or more characteristics
may be improved by a particular parameter variation. All evaluations shall be made on the basis of
retaining the fire resistance classifications obtainable from testing to EN 1634-1, including those lower
than the test duration. However, this shall never lead to an increased fire resistance classification for any
specific parameter beyond that achieved during any one test, unless specifically identified in the relevant
Construction Parameter Variation tables.
4.1.3 If no extended application rule exists for a particular parameter variation, then no extension or
change of this particular parameter is possible without further testing.
4.1.4 Hardware performance sheet (HPS), according to EN 16035 may be part of the documentation
for the assessment and determination of the extended application.
4.2 How to use the extended application rules in Annex A
4.2.1 Identify the variations from the original test specimen(s), which are required to be covered by an
extended application report.
4.2.2 Locate the variations in the appropriate parameter variation by reference to columns (1) and (2)
of Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A.
4.2.3 Establish from the contents of column (3) of Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A whether any
extended application is available beyond the direct application rules (DIAP) in EN 1634-1 without the
need for further testing.
4.2.4 Where this is deemed to be possible, it may be recorded in the extended application report
together with any appropriate restrictions and the stated rules from column (3) of Table A.2 to Table A.7
of Annex A.
4.2.5 Where the variations required can only be achieved from additional testing, the additional test
shall be made on a representative specimen type i.e., a doorset of the same or more onerous configuration.
Alternatively, column (4) of Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A identifies an option for alternative testing
and relevant test parameters.
Most onerous configuration shall be the one with the lowest relevant performance in terms of mode of
failure and/or highest distortion but shall also be evaluated taking the intended construction parameter
variation(s) into account.
Example: If the construction parameter variation involves a change to glazing or side panel and over
panel configurations then the previous result where these have been tested would need to be used to
make the evaluation of most onerous. The result for a single unglazed doorset would not be suitable and
may therefore be discounted when making the evaluation.

4.3 Procedure for maximum field of extended application
4.3.1 It is possible to provide an extended field of application from a single test. However, where a
manufacturer envisages to manufacture a range of doorsets incorporating single leaf doorsets and also
double leaf doorsets with or without side, transom or over panels, with or without glazing, air transfer
grilles (e.g. ventilation grilles/louvres), with alternative items of building hardware, etc. It is
recommended that careful consideration is given to the complete range of doorset designs and options.
This helps to minimise the testing required before testing commences.
4.3.2 Establish all the parameter variations, which are required to be part of the product range.
4.3.3 Determine which are the most important specification requirements and incorporate as many as
possible into the specimen(s) for the first tests in the series.
4.3.4 Conduct the first fire resistance test or a series of tests and then establish which of the original
desired parameter variations have not been covered by the fire resistance tests, including direct
application possibilities.
4.3.5 Identify these parameter variations in Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A and establish if any
extended application is possible without further testing.
4.3.6 Record this for the extended application report together with any restrictions and rules given in
column (3) in Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A.
4.3.7 Evaluate which, if any, of the desired parameter variations have not been covered by the field of
direct application or the initial field of extended application derived from 4.3.5.
4.3.8 Determine if the product range is to include only single leaf doorsets or if the range is to also
include double leaf configurations. Where only single leaf doorsets are to be part of the product range,
the outstanding construction parameter variations shall only be incorporated into specimens for the
single leaf doorset. Where single leaf and double leaf doorsets are to be included in the product range,
the outstanding construction parameter variations for the extended application of single leaf doorsets
may be incorporated into either repeated single leaf doorset tests or, in the most onerous option, as
defined in column (4) of Table A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A, double leaf doorset configurations. See also
the rules in Annex B.
4.3.9 Select the required outstanding parameter variations from column (1) and column (2) of Table
A.2 to Table A.7 of Annex A and observe from column (4) which are the most appropriate, most onerous
options for further testing.
4.3.10 If the complete selection of required parameter variations has not been covered by the tests
completed in accordance with 4.3.8 and 4.3.9 above, then an appropriate test or tests may be repeated
with the additional product variations incorporated.
4.4 Analysis of test results
4.4.1 In order to maximise the field of extended application, it is important that the test reports shall
record details of any premature integrity and/or insulation failure, as well as details of any significant
distortion.
4.4.2 Where a series of tests forms the basis for the extended application, the field of extended
application shall be based on the lowest performance achieved from the complete series of tests unless
premature failure has been attributed to one or more specific construction parameter variations.

4.4.3 Where it has been possible to clearly identify specific parameter failures, the extended application
for all other construction parameter variations may be based on the performance achieved after isolating
the premature failure(s), provided the requirements of 4.1.1 are met. Where the specific construction
parameter variation requires Category B performance and where failures can be identified as having no
relevance to this aspect of the construction, they may be disregarded, and the failure time and associated
Category revised accordingly.
5 Extended application report
Prepare an extended application report in line with EN 15725 and in accordance with the requirements
of EN 15269-1, based on the results of evaluations in accordance with the above.
When additional test data based on representative specimens are used to extend the field of application,
the rationale for using the test data shall be mentioned in the EXAP report.
If the results of the extended application procedure lead to a classification that only covers one side
(opening or closing) of the doorset, this shall be unambiguously stated in the report.
6 Classification report
The classification report shall be determined from the results of the extended application report and
presented in accordance with EN 13501-2.

(normative)

Construction parameter variations
This table is designed to be used by experts competent in the field of fire resistance testing of products
covered by the scope of this standard.
This table shall only be used to assess a field of extended application when at least one positive fire
resistance test to EN 1634-1 has generated a fire resistance classification according to EN 13501-2. Only
results from fire resistance tests in accordance with European Standards may be used as basis for
extended application.
The first two columns identify possible variations to the construction details of the specimen tested.
For some parameters, it is necessary to evaluate whether the specimen displayed a high, medium or low
level of distortion during the fire resistance test. Where this is the case, the following levels shall be used
to establish high, medium and low distortion doorsets as measured using the maximum relative
movement at any position between the edge of the door leaf and door frame or between the meeting
edges of door leaves or the relative movement of the framing members for side and over panels. The
measurements shall be taken from the start of the fire resistance test at any time during the complete
required classification period. The deflections shall be measured at the positions given in EN 1634-1:
— Low: < 40 % of effective rebate depth;
— Medium: ≥ 40 % and ≤ 85 % of effective rebate depth;
— High: > 85 % of effective rebate depth.
Where there is one intumescent strip, the depth of the rebate is the one in which the intumescent strip is
fitted. If no intumescent strip or more than one intumescent strip is fitted, it is the depth of the largest
rebate (see Figure 1).
The evaluation of the influence of a parameter variation on performance characteristics (E/EW/EI /EI )
1 2
lead to the judgement of the possibility of the extension of the field of application, the results of which are
given in column (3) of the following tables. In certain cases in column (3), it is a requirement to achieve
Category B; the requirements for this are given in EN 1634-1.
If the conditions specified in column (3) is not fulfilled, additional fire resistance tests are deemed to be
necessary. In this case, the type of specimen approved for incorporation of the changed parameter is
defined in column (4) and Annex B.

4 Determination of the field of extended application
4.1 General
4.1.1 Before there can be any consideration for extended application, a representative doorset shall
have been tested in accordance with EN 1634-1 to achieve a test result which could generate a
classification in accordance with EN 13501-2 at least equal to the classification subsequently required
from extended application considerations.
4.1.2 A review of the doorset construction parameters can indicate that one or more characteristics
may be improved by a particular parameter variation. All evaluations shall be made on the basis of
retaining the classifications obtainable from testing to EN 1634-1, including those lower than the test
duration. However, this shall never lead to an increased classification for any specific parameter beyond
that achieved during any one test, unless specifically identified in the relevant Construction Parameter
Variation tables.
4.1.3 If, when following the extended application procedure, any part of the classified product cannot
be covered by the extended application rules then that part shall be omitted from the subsequent
extended application report and classification report.
4.2 How to use the extended application rules in Annex A
4.2.1 Identify the variations from the original test specimen(s), which are required to be covered by
an extended application report.
4.2.2 Locate the variations in the appropriate parameter variation by reference to columns (1) and
(2) of Annex A.
4.2.3 Establish from the contents of column (3) of Annex A whether any extended application is
available beyond the direct application rules (DIAP) in EN 1634-1 without the need for further testing.
4.2.4 Where this is deemed to be possible, it can be recorded in the extended application report
together with any appropriate restrictions and the stated rules from column (3) of Annex A.
7

---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 15269-3:2020
prEN 15269-3:2020 (E)
4.2.5 Where the variations required can only be achieved from additional testing, the additional test
should be made on a representative specimen type i.e. a doorset of the same or more onerous
configuration. Alternatively, column (4) of Annex A identifies an option for alternative testing and
relevant test parameters.
Most onerous configuration must be the one with the lowest relevant performance in terms of mode of
failure and/or highest distortion but must also be evaluated taking the intended construction
parameter variation(s) into account. For example if the construction parameter variation involves a
change to glazing or side panel and over panel configurations then the previous result where these have
been tested would need to be used to make the evaluation of most onerous. The result for a single
unglazed doorset would not be suitable and can therefore be discounted when making the evaluation.
4.3 Procedure for maximum field of extended application
4.3.1 It is possible to provide an extended field of application from a single test. However, where a
manufacturer envisages to manufacture a range of doors incorporating single doors and also double
doors with or without side, transom or over panels, with or without glazing, louvres (ventilation/air
transfer grilles), with alternative element of building hardware, etc., it is recommended that careful
consideration is given to the complete range of doorset designs and options. This helps to minimise the
testing required before testing commences.
4.3.2 Establish all the parameter variations, which are required to be part of the product range.
4.3.3 Determine which are the most important specification requirements and incorporate as many
as possible into the specimen(s) for the first tests in the series.
4.3.4 Conduct the first fire resistance test or a series of tests and then establish which of the original
desired parameter variations have not been covered by the fire resistance tests, including direct
application possibilities.
4.3.5 Identify these parameter variations in Annex A and establish if any extended application is
possible without further testing.
4.3.6 Record this for the extended application report together with any restrictions and rules given in
column (3) in Annex A.
4.3.7 Evaluate which, if any, of the desired parameter variations have not been covered by the field of
direct application or the initial field of extended application derived from 4.3.5.
4.3.8 Determine if the product range is to include only single leaf doorsets or if the range is to also
include double leaf configurations. Where only single doorsets are to be part of the product range, the
outstanding construction parameter variations shall only be incorporated into specimens for the single
leaf doorset. Where single leaf and double leaf doorsets are to be included in the product range, the
outstanding construction parameter variations for the extended application of single leaf doorsets may
be incorporated into either repeated single leaf doorset tests or, in the weakest option, as defined in
column 4 of Table A.2 to Table A.7, double leaf doorset configurations. See also Annex B.
4.3.9 Select the required outstanding parameter variations from column (1) and column (2) of Annex
A and observe from column (4) in Annex A which are the most appropriate, weakest specimen options
for further testing.
4.3.10 If the complete selection of required parameter variations has not been covered by the tests
completed in accordance with 4.3.8 and 4.3.9 above, then an appropriate test or tests may be repeated
with the additional product variations incorporated.

4.4 Analysis of test results
4.4.1 In order to maximise the field of extended application, it is important that the test reports shall
record details of any premature integrity and/or insulation failure, as well as details of any significant
distortion.
4.4.2 Where a series of tests forms the basis for the extended application, the field of extended
application shall be based on the lowest performance achieved from the complete series of tests unless
premature failure has been attributed to one or more specific construction parameter variations.
4.4.3 Where it has been possible to clearly identify specific parameter failures, the extended
application for all other construction parameter variations can be based on the performance achieved
after isolating the premature failure(s), provided the requirements of clause 4.1.1 is met. Where the
specific Construction Parameter variation requires Category B performance and where failures can be
identified as having no relevance to this aspect of the construction, they can be disregarded and the
failure time and associated Category revised accordingly.
5 Extended application report
Prepare an extended application report in accordance with the requirements of Clause 6 of EN 15269-
1:2019, based on the results of evaluations in accordance with the above.
When additional test data based on similar designs are used to extend the field of application, the
rationale for using the test data should be mentioned in the EXAP report.
6 Classification report
The classification report shall be determined from the results of the extended application report and
presented in accordance with EN 13501-2.

(normative)

Construction parameter variations
This table is designed to be used by experts competent in the field of fire resistance testing of hinged or
pivoted doorsets with timber based leaves.
This table shall only be used to assess a field of extended application when at least one positive fire
resistance test to EN 1634-1 has generated a classification according to EN 13501-2. Only results from
tests in accordance with European standards can be used as basis for extended application.
The first two columns identify possible variations to the construction details of the specimen tested.
For some parameters, it is necessary to evaluate whether the specimen displayed a high, medium or low
level of distortion during the test. Where this is the case, the following levels shall be used to establish
high, medium and low distortion doorsets as measured using the maximum relative movement at any
position between the edge of the door leaf and door frame or between the meeting edges of door leaves
or the relative movement of the framing members for panelled systems. The measurements shall be
taken from the start of the test at any time during the complete required classification period. The
deflections shall be measured at the positions given in EN 1634-1:
— Low: < 40 % of effective rebate depth;
— Medium: ≥ 40 % and ≤ 85 % of effective rebate depth;
— High: > 85 % of effective rebate depth.
The evaluation of the influence of a parameter variation on performance characteristics (E/EW/EI) lead
to the judgement of the possibility of the extension of the field of application, the results of which are
given in column 3. In certain cases in column 3, it is a requirement to achieve Category B; the
requirements for this are given in EN 1634-1.
Where additional tests are deemed to be necessary, the type of specimen approved for incorporation of
the changed parameter is defined in column 4 and Annex B. Where it is possible to use information from
tests performed on one configuration for evidence on a different configuration, this allowance has been
made in order to reduce the overall number of tests required for extended application evaluation e.g.
single action doorsets to double action doorsets.
In order to maximize the possible field of extended application from a minimum number of tests, the
parameter changes have been spread over a series of test specimens. The recommended tests for each
parameter are dependant on the classification required and the preferred options.
Where more than a single parameter variation is required, the influence on other variations shall also
be taken into account.
