European Norm


This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for durability, strength, security and functionality of mechanically operated multipoint locks and their locking plates for use in doors in buildings. This European Standard covers multipoint locks which are either manufactured and placed on the market in their entirety by one producer or assembled from sub-assemblies produced by more than one producer and subsequently placed on the market as a kit in a single transaction. This standard specifies Multipoint locks and locking systems intended for use in different environmental and security conditions, thus necessitating different grades. This European standard does not specify single point locks or their locking plates which are specified by EN 12209. This standard specifies the dimensions and properties required for security and for the assessment of smoke door suitability. This European standard is not applicable to cylinders, handles, locks for windows, padlocks, locks for safes, furniture locks or prison locks. Assessment of the contribution of the product to the fire resistance of specific fire/smoke resisting door assemblies is beyond the scope of this European Standard.
