Harmonized under:
  • REGULATION (EU) No 305/2011 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC

  • Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 May 2006 on machinery, and amending Directive 95/16/EC (recast

Harmonized standards:


1.1 General

This European Standard specifies the safety and performance requirements, except resistance to fire and smoke control characteristics, for industrial, commercial, garage doors and gates and barriers, intended for installation in areas in the reach of persons, and for which the main intended uses are giving safe access for goods and vehicles accompanied or driven by persons in industrial, commercial or residential premises.

Fire resisting and/or smoke control characteristics for industrial, commercial, garage doors and gates are covered by EN 16034.

This European Standard also covers commercial doors such as rolling shutters and rolling grilles used in retail premises which are mainly provided for the access of persons rather than vehicles or goods.

These doors can include pass doors incorporated in the door leaf which are also covered by this European Standard.

These devices can be manually or power operated.

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.

1.2 Exclusions

This European Standard does not apply to the following which are intended for a different use:

- lock gates and dock gates;

- doors on lifts;

- doors on vehicles;

- armoured doors;

- doors mainly for the retention of animals;

- theatre textile curtains;

- horizontally moving power operated doors mainly intended for pedestrian use in accordance with EN 16361;

- revolving doors of any size;

- railway barriers;

- barriers used solely for vehicles.

This European Standard does not cover the radio part of doors. 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 for doors which are moving because of energy stored by dedicated means from human power such as manually tensioned springs.

This European Standard does not contain any specific requirements for doors on escape routes. The ability to open the door leaf safely and easily cannot normally be achieved by industrial, commercial and garage doors due to size, weight and/or mode of operation.

The noise emission of powered doors and gates is not considered to be a relevant hazard. Therefore this European Standard does not contain any specific requirements on noise in relation to the Machinery Directive.

1.3 Specific applications

This European Standard should also apply to power operated doors which have been created by the addition of power operation to an installed manual door in respect of the relevant requirements. Annex ZA does not apply to this kind of door.

It also identifies requirements and classes of performance for additional characteristics considered to be of importance to the trade.

When a door is part of the load carrying structure of the building the requirements of this European Standard can apply on a voluntary basis in addition to the requirements for the load carrying structure, which are not dealt with in this European Standard. Annex ZA does not apply for this kind of doors.
