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.

---------------------- 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.

prEN 15269-3:2020 (E)
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.

Annex A
(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.
