This document specifies the test method, safety requirements and classification when determining the effect on a complete window or pedestrian doorset impacted with a soft and heavy body. Any secondary moving sashes, casements, leaves, mullions, transoms, T-connectors or fixed lights which can be mounted internally to the main casements or sashes, are intended to also be similarly tested and evaluated for the classification for the complete product.
The test applies to all types of infill of whatever materials including glass. It is not intended to classify the strength of the glass when used as an infill. It is intended to assess the interactions between all components of a window with particular regard to safety in use. It is also applicable to assess the ability of a doorset to keep in place glazed parts.
NOTE 1 The test method is aimed for glazed pedestrian doorsets with injury risk, but can also be used for other types of pedestrian doorsets if requested by the client.
NOTE 2 The test has been devised to suit all window or pedestrian doorset types, configurations and materials.
NOTE 3 For the classification of glass see EN 12600.
