This European standard specifies requirements for single-axis hinges, including continuous hinges of lift-off or non lift-off type, for use on access windows and doors.
NOTE Such windows and doors might or might not be fitted also with separate door closing devices.
This European Standard also includes tests for static loads and allowable wear during durability cycling for hinges mounted on the edge of the door leaf or window sash and opening in one direction only;
This European standard classifies hinges for four categories of use (see 4.2) and also specifies the maximum permissible torque arising from frictional resistance generated within the hinge during endurance testing.
Corrosion protection requirements are specified for those hinges which are not intended to be protected after fitting.
There are no restrictions on the materials or the methods of fabrication used providing the hinge conforms to the requirements relevant to its application.
The suitability of single axis hinges for use on fire/smoke compartmentation door assemblies is determined by fire performance tests conducted in addition to the performance tests required by this European standard.
This European standard does not apply to hinges incorporating spring-assisted door-closing mechanisms. Door closers incorporating door co-ordinator devices (with or without electrically powered hold-open devices) are covered by EN 1158.
Although the fastenings used to fix hinges to window assemblies and door assemblies are not covered by this European standard, if the type of fastening to be used is supplied or specified by the manufacturer, such fastenings are used for the tests.
