3.1
full scale test
test of a full size doorset/openable window in accordance with EN 1191
4 Determination of the field of extended application
4.1 General

4.1.1 Before there can be any consideration for extended application, the doorset/openable window

shall have been tested in accordance with EN 1191 to achieve a test result which could generate a

classification in accordance with EN 13501-2 or correspond to a use category according to EN 16034.

4.1.2 A review of the doorset/openable window construction parameters can indicate that one or more

characteristics can be improved by a particular parameter variation. All evaluations shall be made on the

basis of retaining the classifications obtainable from testing to EN 1191, including those with a lower

number of opening and closing cycles. However, this shall never lead to an increased classification for

any specific parameter beyond that achieved by testing, 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, that part shall be omitted from the subsequent extended

application report and classification report.
4.2 Procedure for evaluation

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, Table A.1.

4.2.3 Establish from the contents of column (3) of Annex A, Table A.1 whether any extended application

is available without the need for further testing.

4.2.4 Where this is deemed to be possible, this can be recorded in the extended application report,

together with any appropriate restrictions and the stated rules from column (3) in Annex A, Table A.1.

4.2.5 Where the variations required can only be achieved from additional testing according to column

(4), the additional test can be made on a similar specimen type to the original test against which the

extended application is sought. Alternatively, column (4) in Annex A, Table A.1 identifies an option for

alternative testing and relevant test parameters.
4.3 Procedure for maximum field of extended application

4.3.1 It is possible to provide a limited field of extended application from the results of a single test.

However, where a manufacturer intends to produce a range of doorsets and openable windows

incorporating single leaf door assemblies and also double leaf door assemblies with or without glazing,

with alternative items of building hardware, etc., it is recommended that careful consideration is given to

the complete range of doorset designs and openable window designs and options in order to minimize

the testing required before testing commences.

4.3.2 Establish all the parameter variations which are required to be part of the product range.

---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
SIST EN 17020-4:2021
EN 17020-4:2021 (E)

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 durability test or a series of tests and then establish which of the original desired

parameter variations have not been covered by this test(s).

4.3.5 Identify these parameter variations in Annex A, Table A.1 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, Table A.1.

4.3.7 Evaluate which, if any, of the desired parameter variations have not been covered by the initial

field of extended application derived from 4.3.6 above.

4.3.8 Determine if the product range is to include only single leaf doorsets or if the range is also to

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 doorsets. 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 the table in Annex A, Table A.1, double leaf doorset configurations.

4.3.9 Select the required outstanding parameter variations from column (1) and column (2) of Annex A,

Table A.1 and observe from column (4) in Annex A, Table A.1 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 carried out

with the additional product variations incorporated.
4.4 Interpretation of test results

4.4.1 In order to maximize the extended field of application, it is important that the test reports shall

record details of any failures occurred throughout the test duration.

4.4.2 Where a series of tests have been conducted, 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 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).
5 Extended application report

Prepare an extended application report in accordance with the requirements of EN 15269-1, based on

the results of evaluations in accordance with the above.
6 Classification report

The classification report shall be determined from the results of the extended application report and shall

be presented in accordance with EN 13501-2:2016, Annex A.

SIST EN 17020-4:2021

Annex A
(normative)
Construction parameter variations

Table A.1 below is designed to be used by experts competent in the field of fire and smoke resistance and

durability of self-closing testing of hinged and pivoted metal framed glazed doorsets and openable

windows.

This table shall only be used to assess a field of extended application when at least one positive durability

of self-closing test according to EN 1191 has generated a classification according to EN 13501-2 and

EN 16034.

The first two columns identify possible variations to the construction details of the specimen tested. It is

presupposed that the variations do not restrain the door/window closing.

Column (3) leads to the judgement of the possibility of extending the field of application.

Where additional tests are deemed to be necessary, the type of specimen approved for incorporation of

the changed parameter is defined in column (4). 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.

Where an additional test is required in column (4), the test is a full scale test, unless otherwise specified.

In order to maximize the possible field of application from a minimum number of tests, the parameter

changes have been spread over a series of test specimens. Where more than a single parameter variation

is required, the influence on other variations shall also be taken into account.

All the rules in Table A.1, with exception are applicable to doorsets and openable windows. However, in

the text only the word “doorset” is used. The word “doorset” can be replaced by “openable windows” in

every rule.

NOTE Column (1) contains titles that are identical to the ones of EN 15269-5:2014+A1:2016, Table A.1,

without reference to possible figures. For clarification the figures that are included in EN 15269-5:2014+A1:2016,

Annex A can be used.

Introduction

The EN 15269 series of standards covering extended application of test results for fire resistance

and/or smoke control for door, shutter and openable window assemblies, including their elements of

building hardware, does not include the durability of self-closing of the doorsets following an extended

application process. This document is one of the EN 17020 series of standards intended to be used for

the purpose of producing an extended application report based on the evaluation of one or more

durability self-closing tests. These European Standards may also be used to identify the best selection of

test specimens required to cover a wide range of product variations.

4 Determination of the field of extended application
4.1 General

4.1.1 Before there can be any consideration for extended application, the doorset/openable window

shall have been tested with EN 1191 to achieve a test result which could generate a classification in

accordance with EN 13501-2 and EN 16034.

4.1.2 A review of the doorset/openable window 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 1191, including those

with a lower number of opening and closing cycles. However, this shall never lead to an increased

classification for any specific parameter beyond that achieved by testing, unless specifically identified in

the relevant Construction Parameter Variation tables.

oSIST prEN 17020-4:2020
prEN 17020-4:2020 (E)

4.1.3 If, when following the extended application procedure, any part of the classified product cannot

be covered by the extended application rules, that part shall be omitted from the subsequent extended

application report and classification report.
4.2 Procedure for evaluation

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, Table A.1.

4.2.3 Establish from the contents of column (3) of Annex A, Table A.1 whether any extended

application is available without the need for further testing.

4.2.4 Where this is deemed to be possible, this can be recorded in the extended application report,

together with any appropriate restrictions and the stated rules from column (3) in Annex A, Table A.1.

4.2.5 Where the variations required can only be achieved from additional testing according to column

(4), the additional test can be made on a similar specimen type to the original test against which the

extended application is sought. Alternatively, column (4) in Annex A, Table A.1 identifies an option for

alternative testing and relevant test parameters.
4.3 Procedure for maximum field of extended application

4.3.1 It is possible to provide a limited field of extended application from the results of a single test.

However, where a manufacturer intends to produce a range of doorsets and openable windows

incorporating single doors and also double doors with or without glazing, with alternative elements of

building hardware, etc., it is recommended that careful consideration is given to the complete range of

doorset designs and openable window designs and options in order to minimize 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 durability test or a series of tests and then establish which of the original

desired parameter variations have not been covered by this test(s).

4.3.5 Identify these parameter variations in Annex A, Table A.1 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, Table A.1.

4.3.7 Evaluate which, if any, of the desired parameter variations have not been covered by the initial

field of extended application derived from 4.3.6 above.

4.3.8 Determine if the product range is to include only single leaf doorsets or if the range is also to

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 doorsets. 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

---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 17020-4:2020
prEN 17020-4:2020 (E)

be incorporated into either repeated single leaf doorset tests or, in the weakest option, as defined in

column (4) of the table in Annex A, Table A.1, double leaf doorset configurations.

4.3.9 Select the required outstanding parameter variations from column (1) and column (2) of

Annex A, Table A.1 and observe from column (4) in Annex A, Table A.1 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 carried

out with the additional product variations incorporated.
4.4 Interpretation of test results

4.4.1 In order to maximize the extended field of application, it is important that the test reports shall

record details of any failures occurred throughout the test duration.

4.4.2 Where a series of tests have been conducted, 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 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).
5 Extended application report

Prepare an extended application report in accordance with the requirements of EN 15269-1, based on

the results of evaluations in accordance with the above.
6 Classification report

The classification report shall be determined from the results of the extended application report and

shall be presented in accordance with EN 13501-2:2016, Annex A.

oSIST prEN 17020-4:2020

Annex A
(normative)
Construction parameter variations

Table A.1 below is designed to be used by experts competent in the field of fire and smoke resistance

and self-closing durability testing of hinged and pivoted metal framed glazed doorsets and openable

windows.

The table shall only be used to assess a field of extended application when at least one positive self-

closing durability test according to EN 1191 has generated a classification according to EN 13501-2 and

EN 16034.

The first two columns identify possible variations to the construction details of the specimen tested. It is

presupposed that the variation does not restrain the door/window closing.

Column (3) leads to the judgement of the possibility of extending the field of application.

Where additional tests are deemed to be necessary, the type of specimen approved for incorporation of

the changed parameter is defined in column (4). 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.

Where an additional test is required in column (4), the test is a full scale test, unless otherwise specified.

In order to maximize the possible field of application from a minimum number of tests, the parameter

changes have been spread over a series of test specimens. Where more than a single parameter

variation is required, the influence on other variations shall also be taken into account.

All the rules in Table A.1, with exception are applicable to doorsets and openable windows. However, in

the text only the word “doorset” is used. The word “doorset” can be replaced by “openable windows” in

every rule.

NOTE Column (1) contains titles that are identical to the ones of EN 15269–5:2014+A1:2016, Table A.1,

without reference to possible figures. For clarification the figures that are included in EN 15269–5:2014+A1:2016,

Annex A may be used.
