|Publication Date:||26 October 2007|
|ICS Code (Building accessories):||91.190|
This European Standard specifies performance requirements for the strength and durability of hardware for the operation of movable shutter sashes including requirements and test methods.
This European Standard is applicable to hardware for side-hung and top-hung shutters comprising one or more shutter sashes. The requirements and test methods of this European Standard are applicable to the following:
- shapes and dimensions of sash hinges, double-sashed shutter hinges and frame hinges
- shapes and dimensions of frame hinges and sash hinges with arrest function
Only the corrosion requirements of 4.7 are applicable to double-sash shutter latches, locking-rods, decorative corner-brackets, handles, stops without automatic arrest function, central hinges, shutter catches with automatic arrest function and other hardware components for window and door shutters.
NOTE 1 The sashes of side-hung shutters may have additional projecting shutter-inserts. The hardware for these projecting shutter-inserts is not covered by the scope of this European Standard.
NOTE 2 If due to the hardware fixing type or the dead weight of the described test shutter, this can not be used, a corresponding system sash with the same dimensions (800 mm wide X 1 400 mm high) can be tested.
This is particularly valid for hardware used exclusively in a complete modular system from a systems manufacturer (consisting of the hardware components, frame profiles and panel units as well as the necessary fixing materials).
NOTE 3 Tower bolts and locking-rods should conform to EN 12051.
NOTE 4 Fixings used to attach hardware to shutters are not covered by this European Standard.
To allow a choice of items from a single source, so-called ""product group"" of elements may be nominated by the manufacturer. The single components may be called ""product group"" components, if these are approved by accredited test authorities commissioned to test, based upon the comparable features; for example hinge fe ...
