NOTE 2 Such products are covered by 85 EN 16654.
NOTE 3 See Annex A for in formation on additional attributes.
NOTE 1 The probe is regarded as trapped when it cannot be removed by a force not exceeding 12 N.
NOTE 2 Additional safety measures might be needed to prevent entrapment in exposed areas above and below the device (see A.6).
5.3.3 Deformation of the device
When tested in accordance with, when the finger probe is removed the normal operation of the door shall not be impaired.
5.4 Small parts
If any part becomes detached during testing it shall not fit wholly in the small parts cylinder described in 7.2.4 when tested in accordance with
5.5 Sharp edges
Edges and protruding parts accessible during use shall be rounded or chamfered and free of burr and sharp edges.
7.4.1 Durability test
Open and close the door to an angle of (90 ±5)° for 200 000 cycles with the device mounted to the doorset in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Open the door to the maximum opening angle of the device at the beginning, middle and end of the test for five manual cycles.
The motion of the door leaf shall be operated without shock at a rate of 5—10 cycles per mm.
The rest time shall be at least 1 s and shall not exceed 4 s.
7.4.2 Effectiveness tests Prevention of finger entrapment test
Open the door to an angle of (35 ±5)°. Use the finger probe (see Figure 2) to gradually apply a force of 25 N horizontally at three onerous positions on that part of the device intended to provide protection, but not within 12 mm of each end. If the probe enters into a space which might cause entrapment, allow the door to close while maintaining the force.BS-8613-2017
