Power operated pedestrian doorsets - Safety in use - Requirements and test methods
1.1 General This European Standard specifies requirements regarding design and test methods for external and internal power operated pedestrian doorsets. Such doorset constructions may be operated electro-mechanically, electro-hydraulically or pneumatically. This European Standard covers safety in use of power operated pedestrian doorsets used for normal access as well as in escape routes and as fire resistance and/or smoke control doorsets. The type of doorsets covered include power operated pedestrian sliding, swing and revolving doorsets, including balanced doorsets and folding doorsets with a horizontally moving leaf. Power operated pass doorsets incorporated in other doorsets for which the main intended use is giving safe access for persons are covered by the scope of this European Standard. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to power operated doorsets when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Annex L). 1.2 Exclusions This European Standard does not apply to: - vertically moving doors; - doors on lifts; - doors on vehicles; - power operated doors or gates mainly intended for vehicular traffic or access for goods; - doors used in industrial processes; - partition walls; - doors outside the reach of people (such as crane gantry fences); - traffic barriers; - turnstiles; - platform doors. This European Standard does not cover special functions of doorsets, such as security in banks, airports, etc. or fire compartments, where conformity of the specific function with requirements of the application shall have the preference. This European Standard does not cover operation in environments where the electromagnetic disturbances are outside the range of those specified in EN 61000-6-3. This European Standard does not cover the radio part of operating devices of doorsets. If a radio-operating device is used, the relevant ETSI standards should be applied in addition. This European Standard does not contain any specific requirement regarding noise emitted by a power operated doorset in relation to the Machinery Directive as it is not considered to be a significant hazard. This European Standard is not applicable to power operated pedestrian doorsets in use before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
