Child protective products - Consumer fitted finger protection devices for doors - Safety requirements and test methods

The standard sets out requirements and test methods for consumer fitted finger protection products intended to be mounted on doors in the domestic environment in order to prevent crushing injuries to children.

Kinderschutzprodukte - Vom Verbraucher anzubringende Fingerschutzprodukte für Türen - Sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren von für die private Nutzung bestimmte Fingerschutzvorrichtungen fest, die vom Verbraucher in Innenräumen an Drehflügeltüren befestigt werden, um Verletzungen von Kindern durch Quetschen von Fingern beim Schließen der Tür zu verhindern.
Ein Fingerschutzprodukt beruht auf mindestens einem der drei Schutzverfahren: Abschirmen von Gefährdungsstellen, Vermeiden des Schließens oder kontrolliertes Schließen einer Tür.
ANMERKUNG 1   Produkte, die dafür vorgesehen sind, die Tür in einer feststehenden Position zu halten, sowie Reibscharniere werden in der vorliegenden Europäischen Norm nicht behandelt.
ANMERKUNG 2   Fingerschutzvorrichtungen, die dafür vorgesehen sind, von Fachbetrieben eingebaut zu werden, oder die ein fester Bestandteil des Türsystems sind, liegen außerhalb des Anwendungsbereichs dieser Europäischen Norm.

EN 16654:2015 (E) 4 1 Scope This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for consumer fitted finger protection devices intended to be mounted on hinged doors in the domestic environment inside buildings in order to prevent crushing injuries to children as a result of the door closing. A finger protection product is based on at least one of three protection methods: hazard shielding, shut prevention or shut controlling. NOTE 1 Products intended to maintain the door in a fixed position and friction hinges are not covered by this European Standard. NOTE 2 Finger protection devices intended to be installed by professionals or that are an integral part of the door system are beyond the scope of this European Standard. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 1935, Building hardware — Single-axis hinges — Requirements and test methods 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 finger protection device device intended to minimize the risk of crushing injuries to fingers between (part of) door leaf/leaves and the door frame when the door leaf is moving 3.2 hazard shielding device finger protection device intended to minimize the risk of crushing injuries to fingers in the gap between the hinge edge of the door leaf and the door frame 3.3 child appealing finger protection device finger protection device that resembles by any means another object commonly recognized as appealing to or intended for use by young children, or has entertaining audio effects or animated effects Note 1 to entry: This includes, but is not limited to finger protection devices the shape of which resembles cartoon characters, toys, guns, watches, telephones, musical instruments, vehicles, human body or parts of the human body, animals, food or beverages, or that play musical notes, or have flashing lights or moving objects or other entertaining features. 3.4 shut controlling device finger protection device intended to minimize the risk of crushing injuries to fingers at the handle edge of the door by controlling the deceleration of the door leaf or preventing the door from shutting suddenly SIST EN 16654:2016

EN 16654:2015 (E) 5 3.5 shut prevention device finger protection device intended to minimize the risk of crushing injuries to fingers at the handle edge of the door by preventing the door from shutting completely, maintaining a gap between door leaf and door frame Note 1 to entry: Shutting may still be possible without removing or by deactivating the device, e.g. by turning the door handle. Note 2 to entry: Figure 1 illustrates the relevant parts of a door leaf and a door frame.

The manufacturer shall indicate the type(s) of doors including the thickness and the materials (e.g. aluminium, PVC, wood) for which the finger protection device is suitable. If appropriate, the manufacturer shall ensure that fixings provided with the finger protection device intended to attach it to the door leaf and/or the door frame (e.g. adhesive tape, screws) are suitable for the recommended material(s). The manufacturer shall specify the maximum opening angle of the door leaf for which the hazard shielding device is suitable. SIST EN 16654:2016

EN 16654:2015 (E) 6 4.2 Child appeal The finger protection device shall not be child appealing. 4.3 Mechanical function and structural integrity 4.3.1 Hazard shielding devices When tested according to 5.4.1.1, the sample shall not break, have any visible cracks or permanent deformation, nor disengage. The sample shall be fully functional after the test. If any part becomes detached during testing it shall not fit wholly in the small parts cylinder described in 5.2.3. 4.3.2 Shut prevention devices When tested according to 5.4.1.2.1, the sample shall not break, have any visible cracks or permanent deformation, nor disengage. The sample shall be fully functional after the test. If any part becomes detached during testing it shall not fit wholly in the small parts cylinder described in 5.2.3. When tested according to 5.4.1.2.2, shut prevention devices with automatic reactivation shall reactivate automatically each time without being adjusted. 4.3.3 Shut controlling devices When tested according to 5.4.1.3, the sample shall not break, have any visible cracks or permanent deformation, nor disengage. The sample shall be fully functional after the test. If any part becomes detached during testing, it shall not fit wholly in the small parts cylinder described in 5.2.3. 4.4 Effectiveness 4.4.1 General requirements The finger protection device shall provide protection in the hazardous area(s) (lock side/hinge side, etc.) for which it is intended according to the product information. The finger protection device shall be effective from the bottom of the door leaf to a height of at least 1 800 mm. The finger protection device shall be effective at all permissible opening angles for a door of maximum permissible door leaf thickness according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The finger protection device shall be capable of being correctly mounted on doors with a door leaf thickness of at least 40 mm which open (virtually) 180°, unless otherwise specified. 4.4.2 Accessibility for hazard shielding devices When tested in accordance with 5.4.2.1, the finger probe shall not be crushed between the door leaf and door frame. When the finger probe is removed the normal operation of the door shall not be impaired, and the finger protection device shall not be broken or have any visible cracks or permanent deformation, or disengage. 4.4.3 Deformation for hazard shielding devices When tested in accordance with 5.4.2.2, when the finger probe is removed the normal operation of the door shall not be impaired, and the finger protection device shall not be broken or have any visible cracks or permanent deformation, or disengage.

EN 16654:2015 (E) 7 4.4.4 Static strength for shut prevention devices When tested in accordance with 5.4.2.3, the finger probe shall not be subjected to any force during the entire closing procedure. NOTE The test simulates the door being pushed (or pulled) shut, e.g. by a child leaning against the door leaf. 4.4.5 Dynamic strength for shut controlling devices When tested in accordance with 5.4.2.4, the finger probe shall not be subjected to any force during the entire closing procedure. NOTE The test simulates the door being slammed shut. 4.5 Small parts When tested according to 5.4.3, any small part or component which becomes detached from a height of 1 500 mm or less of the finger protection device shall not fit wholly within the small parts cylinder described in 5.2.3. 4.6 Sharp edges Edges and protruding parts accessible during normal use shall be rounded or chamfered and fre
