Fire rated doors

 EN 1634/2014

CE2

Why CE for fire rating doors?

Before 2014: each EU country has its own law concerning the production of fire rated doors:

  • testing 1 door size, production size unlimited;
  • only test with the hinges away from the fire;
  • test on the door panel, not on the combination  of the door panel and the jambs;
  • each EU country has other laws concerning fire rated doors.

2014: publication of:

  1. EN1634-1: fire resistance and smoke control tests for doors and shutters in the EU;
  2. EN 16034: CE certification of fire rated door production in the EU.

The difference after 2014:

  • CE on production unit, not on brand;
  • Door panel and jambs together, not separate;
  • Limited extrapolation depending on the size of the tested door and the result of the test;
  • 2 tests:  1 with the hinge on the side with the fire, 1 with the hinges on the opposite side of the fire;
  • Tested with architraves: only possible delivery with architraves;
  • Installation teams must be certified by the factory;
  • Other hardware possible if DOP is foreseen by the external factory;
  • Door and jambs must be foreseen on DOP;

There are 4 types of certificates:

  • E I;= stability of door panel
  • E I S = smoke control;
  • E I C= self-closing;
  • E I S C = smoke control and self-closing.
  • 2 subdivisions
    • E I 1: testing points at 25 mm of the corner;
    • E I 2: the testing point at 100 mm of the corner.
  • time table
    • fire rated door 30 min ( test min 36 min);
    • fire rated door 60 min ( test min 68 min).
