This International Standard deals with the safety of electric drives for horizontally and vertically moving gates, doors and windows for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. It also covers the hazards associated with the movement of the driven part.
Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, offices, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, in industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.
Requirements for drives for doors that may be used in emergency routes and exits are given in Annex AA.
NOTE 101 Examples of drives within the scope of this standard are drives for
- folding doors;
- revolving doors;
- rolling doors;
- roof windows;
- sectional overhead doors;
- swinging and sliding gates or doors.
Examples are shown in Figure 101.
NOTE 102 Drives may be supplied with a driven part.
As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account
- the use of appliances by young children or infirm persons without supervision;
- playing with the appliance by young children.
NOTE 103 Attention is drawn to the fact that in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.
