This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of door and shutter assemblies and openable windows designed for installation within openings incorporated in vertical separating elements, such as:
a) hinged and pivoted doors;
b) horizontally sliding and vertically sliding doors including articulated sliding doors and sectional doors;
c) folding doors, sliding folding doors /shutters;
d) tilting doors;
e) rolling shutter doors;
f) openable windows;
g) operable fabric curtains.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1.
The testing of fire dampers is covered by EN 1366-2.
The testing of closures for conveyor systems is covered by EN 1366-7.
By prior agreement with the test sponsor, additional information may be gained for individual elements of building hardware in order to fulfil the performance criteria identified in EN 1634-2. Based on the observations recorded during the test, the results may be presented in a separate report which should be in accordance with the requirements of EN 1634-2.
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 and subject to National Regulations. 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.
