2. Introduction to CE certification of door closer

STANDARD EN 1154 describes the requirements for door closer control equipment for revolving doors. This device is installed in the door frame, inside the door or on the floor. The scope is limited to the closing equipment of manually opening the door, that is, the power of closing the door comes from people opening the door, then releasing the door, and the door returns to the closed position in a controlled way.

Standard en1154 describes two applicable classes for fire / smoke doors or non fire / smoke doors:

-Class 0: door closer not suitable for fire / smoke doors

-Grade 1: the door closer applicable to fire / smoke door shall pass the fire resistance test together with the fire door and refer to the fire protection standard.

There are additional requirements for door closer equipment for fire / smoke doors:

1) When installing the door closer according to the manufacturer's requirements, the tested door should be able to be opened from any angle. Size 1 and 2 closers are not suitable for fire / smoke doors due to their small closing torque and no adjustable closing force. Door closers with adjustable force for fire / smoke doors must be a minimum of size 3.

2) The fire test of door closer must be carried out together with the door installation according to the standard en1634-1 or en1634-3.
