Testing of locks
acc. to EN 12209 • EN 14846 • EN 15685 • DIN 18250 • DIN 18251-1 - DIN 18251-3
The test standards include continuous function testing, static and dynamic load testing as well as corrosion and climate testing and, if necessary, mechatronic testing. These tests are designed to ensure security and usability and can be carried out at PIV. The DIN 18251 standard is divided into three parts:
- Part 1: Mortise locks for rebate doors
- Part 2: Mortise locks for tube frame doors
- Part 3: Mortise locks for multi-point locks
The DIN 18250 standard describes the specific requirements for mortise locks used on fire doors and smoke control doors. A conformity mark is associated with this standard.
The European standard EN 12209 covers all mechanical mortise locks and striking plates. In addition to this standard, electromechanical locks and striking plates can be tested according to EN 14846.
An exception are multi-point locks, which are often used, and which can be tested according to the European standard EN 15685 as well as a variety of other specialised locking systems such as those used for safes.
If the testing requirements of EN 12209 or EN 14846 are met, a certificate of constancy of performance (CE mark) can be issued, but only in conjunction with a smoke/fire protection test.
