This Part of EN 1634 specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of doors, shutters and openable windows designed for installation within openings incorporated in vertical separating elements, such as:
- hinged or pivoted doors;
- horizontally sliding and vertically sliding doors including articulated sliding doors and sectional doors;
- sliding/folding doors and shutters;
- tilting doors;
- rolling shutters;
- openable windows;
- openable fabric curtains.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1.
Doors tested in accordance with this European Standard and classified in accordance with EN 13501-2 may be accepted for lift landing door applications as an alternative to EN 81-58. EN 81-58 represents a specific test for lift landing doors and results in an alternative classification which may not be suitable for some other purposes as defined in National Regulations.
The testing of fire dampers is covered by EN 1366-2.
The testing of closures for conveyor systems is covered by EN 1366-7.
Further requirements are described in the relevant product standard and in the supporting standard EN 14600.
This method may also be used to determine the fire resistance of non-loadbearing horizontally orientated doors, shutters and openable windows by analogy. However, these are not specifically addressed here and the field of direct application given in Clause 13 is not valid for such horizontally orientated products.
By prior agreement with the test sponsor additional information may be gained for individual elements of building hardware. Based on the observations recorded during the test, the results may be presented in a separate report.
