ANSI and EN Hinge Comparison

Hinges Standard: ANSI & EN 

American National Standard Institute (ANSI) ANSI 156.1

This Standard establishes requirements for butts and hinges. Cycle tests, lateral and vertical wear tests, friction tests, strength tests, finish tests, and material and dimensional requirements are included.

DDSS001-ANSI Grade 2 Hinge

European (EN) EN1935-2002

BS EN 1935 classifies door furniture by using an 8 digit coding system. A similar classification applies to all building hardware product standards so that complementary items of hardware can be specified to, for instance, a common level of corrosion resistance, category of use, etc. Each digit refers to a particular feature of the product measured against the standard's performance requirements.


Category of use

Grade 1 : Light duty

Grade 2 : Medium duty

Grade 3 : Heavy duty

Grade 4 : Severe duty

Cycles test

Grade 3 : 10 000 test cycles, for light duty hinges on windows only

Grade 4 : 25 000 test cycles, for light duty hinges on windows and doors

Grade 7 : 200 000 test cycles, for medium. heavy and severe duty hinges on door only

Fire suitability0/1

Grade 0 : Not approved for fire /smoke resistant door assemblies

Grade 1 : Suitable for fire/smoke resistant door assemblies subject to satisfactory assessment of the   

contribution of the single-axis hinge to the fire resistance of the specified fire/smoke door assemblies. 

such assessment is beyond the scope of this European standard(see EN 1634-1).


Single-axis hinges are required to satisfy the essential requirement of safety in use. Therefore, only grades 1 is identified.

Corrosion Resistance

Grade 0: No defined corrosion resistance.

Grade 1: Mild resistance

Grade 2: Moderate Resistance

Grade 3: High resistance

Grade 4: Very High resistance


Grade 0:Not suitable for use on burglar-resistant door assemblies

Grade 1:Suitable for applications requiring a degree of security. Annex C of this European standard details the hinge grade to use for the level of security required.
