Industrial, commercial and garage doors and gates - Safety in use of power operated doors - Requirements and test methods

This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for the safety in use of power operated door, gate and barrier, intended for installation in areas in the reach of persons, and for which the main intended use is  giving safe access for goods and vehicles accompanied or driven by persons in industrial, commercial or residential premises.
This European Standard also covers power operated vertically moving commercial doors such as rolling shutters and rolling grilles, used in retail premises which are mainly provided for goods protection.
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the power operation of industrial, commercial and garage doors, and gates when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable as identified in Clause 4.
All lifetime phases of the machinery including transportation, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping are considered by this standard.
This European Standard does not apply to
-   lock gates and dock gates;
-   doors on lifts;
-   doors on vehicles;
-   armoured doors;
-   doors mainly for the retention of animals, unless they are at the site perimeter ;
-   theatre textile curtains;
-   horizontally moving power operated doors mainly intended for pedestrian use;
-   doors outside the reach of people (such as crane gantry fences);
-   railway barriers;
-   barriers intended solely for use by pedestrians;
-   barriers used solely for vehicles on motorways.
Whenever the term "door" is used in this document, it shall be deemed to cover the full scope of types and variances of doors, gates and barriers in the scope of this Standard.
This European Standard does not deal with any specific requirements on noise emitted from power operated door, gate and barrier, intended for installation in areas in the reach of persons, and for which the main intended use is giving safe access for goods and vehicles accompanied or driven by persons in industrial, commercial or residential premises as their noise emission is not considered to be a relevant hazard.
NOTE   Noise emission of power operated doors is not a significant hazard for the users of these products. It is a comfort aspect.
This European Standard is not applicable to machinery which are manufactured before the date of publication of the standard.

e) Delete in last paragraph “used for one household only and which do not protrude onto a public

access area”.
5 Modification to 4.2.1, General
Replace the existing text with the following:
“A hazard exists:

— between the main closing edge of any door and an opposing edge, and between secondary closing

edges of hinged, folding, tilting and sliding doors and opposing edges;
— between closing edges and obstacles within the closing area of the leaf;
— between leaves passing each other;

— between leaves and the perimeter of openings in leaves and fixed parts in the vicinity;

Other surfaces, e.g. the ground, should be taken into consideration.
— at parts of the leaf which protrude;

— at moving parts of the drive or drive unit which are capable of causing injury;

— at gaps other than main closing gaps which vary in size and are accessible during the leaf

movement.

The hazard can be present during the initial impact, the period after the impact and persist because a

person can be held between the leaf and the surrounding fixed parts.
Hazards caused by reversed movement should also be taken into consideration.”.
6 Modification to 4.5.3, Hazards caused by imprisonment
Delete “,” after “escape”.
7 Modification to 5.1.1, General requirements
Replace the existing text with the following:

“Power operated doors shall comply with the safety requirements and/or protective/risk reduction

measures of this clause, taking full account of the factors listed in 4.1. In addition, the machine shall be

designed according to the principles of EN ISO 12100:2010 for any hazards which are not dealt with by

this document.

Power operated doors shall additionally comply with the mechanical requirements of EN 12604 unless

otherwise specified.

Electrical equipment comprising the safety-related parts of the control system which are exposed to

outdoor conditions shall be at least IP44 according to EN 60529.”.
8 Modification to 5.1.2, Safety Function performed by control system
Replace the existing text with the following:

“The combined safety–related parts of a control system (SRP/CS) which perform the safety function

shall be at least PL “c” with the minimum of category 2 according to EN ISO 13849-1 subject to specific

---------------------- Page: 7 ----------------------
SIST EN 12453:2017/oprA1:2019
EN 12453:2017/prA1:2019 (E)

exclusions made in this standard. The safety function shall be checked at the latest at one end position

of the door leaf.

The safety–related parts of a control system (SRP/CS), include the processing of the signal:

— from the sensing unit of the sensitive protective equipment to the Output Signal Switching Device

(OSSD) including the connection between the sensing unit and the drive unit;
— of travel limiting devices;
— of hold to run devices (the device itself need not meet category 2);
— of anti-drop devices (the device itself need not meet category 2);

— of slack cables detecting devices (the device itself need not meet category 2).

When mechanical systems are used in conjunction with other technologies EN ISO 13849-2 should be

taken into account.

Well-tried components can be used in SRP/CS for a safety-related application based on the application

of well-tried safety principles.

Components which do not meet category 2 need not be tested according to EN ISO 13849-1 when based

on well-tried safety principles.

Safety related parts of a control system which perform the safety function of electrical equipment in

compliance with the relevant requirements of EN 60335-2-95 or EN 60335-2-103 are considered to

comply with the requirements of this subclause (5.1.2).”.

Add after last paragraph the following text:

“Where vulnerable persons may be present (eg the infirm, elderly or children, as identified by risk

assessment taking into account the factors identified by 4.1), non-contact means E should be selected in

preference to the C and D means (C, D and E all as described by this subclause), to the extent that the

technology and application permits.

Where vulnerable persons may be present and avoidance of contact is not possible, impact forces as low

as possible below the maximums permitted by Annex A for the C means shall be employed, to the extent

that the technology and application permits for the correct operation of the door.”.

10 Modification to 5.2.1.1, General
Replace last paragraph with:

“For non-automatic operated domestic garage doors it is acceptable to safeguard only the hazard

generated by the movement of the main closing edge.”.
