c) folding doors, sliding folding doors /shutters;
d) tilting doors;

f) openable windows;
g) operable fabric curtains.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363 1.
The testing of fire dampers is covered by EN 1366 2.
The testing of closures for conveyor systems is covered by EN 1366 7.
By prior agreement with the test sponsor, additional information may be gained for individual elements of building hardware in order to fulfil the performance criteria identified in EN 1634 2. Based on the observations recorded during the test, the results may be presented in a separate report which should be in accordance with the requirements of EN 1634 2.
