Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies requirements for the manufacture, performance and testing of emergency exit devices mechanically operated by either a lever handle or a push pad, for use where a panic situation is unlikely to arise. The European Standard does not specify any particular design of emergency exit devices and only such dimensions as are required for safety reasons are specified. This European Standard does not cover specific emergency exit devices intended for use by the severely disabled. Due to the wide range of disabilities, such emergency exit devices and their performances should be agreed between specifier and manufacturer. Emergency exit devices covered by this European Standard are for use on hinged or pivoted door leaves only. This European Standard covers two specific designs of emergency exit devices: those designed for use on single leaf doors only, and those specifically designed for use on single leaf doors and/or double doorsets. (see 7.1.11). This European Standard covers two specific types of operation: Emergency exit devices with "lever handle" operation, type A (see 3.9, Figures 1 and 3) and emergency exit devices with "push pad" operation, type B (see 3.15, Figures 2 and 4). This European Standard covers two categories of emergency exit devices projection in order to maximise the width of the escape route and minimise the projection from the door face where either or both of these criteria are of importance (see 4.1.13). This standard also covers the exceptional case of emergency exit devices intended for use on inwardly opening exit doors (see Annex F). The suitability of an emergency exit device for use on fire/smoke resisting door assemblies is determined by fire performance tests conducted in addition to the performance tests required by this European Standard. Annex B indicates additional requirements for these products. This European Standard does not cover panic exit devices operated by a horizontal bar (see EN 1125) or electrically controlled panic or emergency exit systems (see prEN 13633 and prEN 13637).
