SIST EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011

EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011 (E) 5 Introduction With the aim of clarifying the intentions of this European Standard and avoiding doubts when reading it, the following assumptions were made when producing it: a) components without specific requirements are:  designed in accordance with the usual engineering practice and calculation codes, including all failure modes;  of sound mechanical and electrical construction;  made of materials with adequate strength and of suitable quality;  general electrical hazards are dealt with according to electrical safety standards such as EN 60204–1. b) components are kept in good repair and working order, so that the required characteristics remain during the economical working life despite wear; c) with the exception of the items listed below, a mechanical device is built according to good practice and the requirements of this European Standard:  negotiations occur between the manufacturer and the purchaser concerning particular conditions for the use and places of use for the door related to health and safety;  the place of use/installation to be adequately lit;  the place of use/installation to allow safe use of the door. These assumptions do not restrict the need for adequate information for use in this European Standard. SIST EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011

EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011 (E) 6 1 Scope 1.1 General This European Standard specifies the safety and performance requirements for doors, gates and barriers, intended for installation in areas in the reach of persons, and for which the main intended uses are giving safe access for goods and vehicles accompanied or driven by persons in industrial, commercial or residential premises. This European Standard also covers commercial doors such as rolling shutters and rolling grilles used in retail premises which are mainly provided for the access of persons rather than vehicles or goods. These doors can include pass doors incorporated in the door leaf which are also covered by this European Standard. These devices can be manually or power operated. This European Standard does not cover operation in environments where the electromagnetic disturbances are outside the range of those specified in EN 61000-6-3. 1.2 Exclusions This European Standard does not apply to the following which are intended for a different use:

 lock gates and dock gates;  doors on lifts;  doors on vehicles;  armoured doors;  doors mainly for the retention of animals;  theatre textile curtains;  horizontally moving manually operated pedestrian doors with a leaf size less than 6,25 m²;  horizontally moving power operated doors less than 2,5 m wide and 6,25 m² area, designed principally for pedestrian use in accordance with prEN 12650-1;  revolving doors of any size;  railway barriers;  barriers used solely for vehicles. This European Standard does not cover the radio part of doors. If a radio operating device is used, the relevant ETSI standards should be applied in addition. This European Standard does not contain any specific requirements for fire resistance or smoke control characteristics which are covered in prEN 13241-2. !deleted text" This European Standard does not contain any specific requirement for doors which are moving because of energy stored by dedicated means from human power such as manually tensioned springs. SIST EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011

EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011 (E) 7 This European Standard does not contain any specific requirements for doors on escape routes. The ability to open the door leaf safely and easily cannot normally be achieved by industrial, commercial and garage doors due to size, weight and/or mode of operation. !The noise emission of powered doors and gates is not considered to be a relevant hazard. Therefore this European Standard does not contain any specific requirements on noise in relation to the Machinery Directive." 1.3 Specific applications This European Standard should also apply to power operated doors which have been created by the addition of power operation to an installed manual door in respect of the relevant requirements. Annex ZA does not apply to this kind of door. It also identifies requirements and classes of performance for additional characteristics considered to be of importance to the trade. When a door is part of the load carrying structure of the building the requirements of this European Standard can apply on a voluntary basis in addition to the requirements for the load carrying structure, which are not dealt with in this European Standard. Annex ZA does not apply for this kind of doors. 2 Normative references This European Standard incorporates by dated or undated reference, provisions from other publications. These normative references are cited at the appropriate places in the text, and the publications are listed hereafter. For dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications apply to this European Standard only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision.
