This European Standard permits an evaluation of the contribution that a selected item of building hardware is able to make (either positive or negative) to the fire resistance of a hinged or pivoted doorset or an openable window assembly without requiring a full size test. An item of building hardware does not have a fire resistance capability in itself because fire resistance is a term which can only be applied to an element of structure and is quantified by means of the fire resistance test. An item of building hardware does, however, form part of a fire barrier (fire resisting doors and openable windows) and therefore is required to have demonstrated suitability for that purpose. See Annex F for the relationship of this Test Standard with door related product Standards, test methods and classification This European Standard describes a procedure for determining the influence of building hardware with respect to fire resistance in terms of integrity and insulation when incorporated in a fire resisting door or openable window assembly used for personnel access, maintenance, and in some countries, as a means of escape. Such test assemblies use reduced size specimens of the proposed construction in place of the full size assembly more than one specimen may be tested together in a standard furnace test providing the separation of the elements required by EN 1363-1 is maintained. The test is designed to characterize the influence that the selected item of building hardware has on the fire resistance of a full size assembly in a manner that solely addresses the factors attributed to that item. There are five individual methods for characterizing the fire behaviour of items of building hardware. The scope of each method is given in the following: Method for testing single axis hinges and pivots for side hung door assemblies and openable windows; single axis hinges 1); single action pivots1); spring hinges (for evaluating the influence on integrity);uncontrolled door closing devices; double action pivots. Method for testing edge mounted securing devices, including those for use on sliding doors: mortice latches and mortice locks and mortice deadlocks, including electric locks and multi-point locks with locking plates 2); rim latches and locks1); cylinders (for latches and locks); door and window bolts; exit devices.
