Testing of padlocks and padlock fittings

acc. to EN 12320 • EN 16864

Padlocks are used, among other purposes, to protect and control doors (e.g. cellar doors, garden gates), cabinets or moveable objects. PIV also carries out testing of padlocks and padlock fittings.

The European standard EN 12320 describes the test methods to be applied to these products and specifies, among other things, requirements for the performance, strength, durability, corrosion resistance and safety of padlocks. A 4-digit classification key is used to certify padlocks with a variety of function and safety requirements.

EN 16864 is the addendum for mechatronics and describes the requirements for the performance and testing of mechatronic padlocks and their keys. The primary focus of testing for these products is on strength, torsion, shock and vibration tests as well as electrostatic discharge testing, continuous function testing, tests of environmental resistance (corrosion, water, humidity, cold and heat). An 8-digit classification key is used to certify mechatronic padlocks with a variety of function and safety requirements.

If certification is desired (testing and inspection by PIV), this can be obtained through the respective PIV CERT certification programme. The PIV CERT certification association issues a certificate for padlocks and padlock fittings once they have successfully passed the test and the initial production site inspection has run smoothly.
