Four grades are identified:
Grade 1 : Low frequency of use by people with a high incentive to exercise care and a small chance of misuse.

Grade 2 : Medium frequency of use by people with some incentive to exercise care but where there is some chance of misuse.
E.g.Internal office doors.
Grade 3 : High frequency of use by public or others with little incentive to exercise care and with a high change of misuse.
Twelve grades are identified with minimum figures for deadbolt and snib operation, and latch bolt operation with and without side load, as show. The side load is applied to the latch bolt when it is being withdrawn.

Nine grades are identified with maximum figure for closing force at various door masses as shown. Note :losing force is form a standing. Star :i.e.fully extended latch bolt in contact with striking plate at star of test .
|Maximun closing||Up to 100kg||Door mass up to 200kg||Above 200kg|

|25N||grade 4||grade 5||grade 6|
|50N||grade 1||grade 2||grade 3|
Two grade are identified :
Grade 0 : Not approved for use on fire/smke door assemblies
Grade 1 : Suitable for use on fire/smoke door assemblies tested to BS EN 1634-1 etc.
Note 1. A grade 1 classification means only that the lock has been designed for use on fire/smoke control doors; the actual fire performance achieved(e.g.fire integrity of 30minutes on a partially glazed timber door etc.)will be contained in a separate fire test report.
Note 2. Where a product is intended for fire/somke door use (i.e.a."1" in box 4 ), it must be possible to demonstrate compliance with the Essential Requirements of the Construction Products (Amendments)Regulation. It is recommended that the product should bear the CE mark(see section on CE marking) .

|No requirement||-20c to +80C|
|240 hours||grade D||grade G|
|96 hours||grade C||grade F|
|48 hours||grade B||grade E|
|24 hours||grade A|
|No requirement||grade O|

9.Type of Key operation and locking.
Nine grades are identified for differing types of key operation, The grading determines how the lock is assessed foe deadlocking requirement as shown. In addition, there is a maximum key torque operating requirement of 1.5 Nm and a minimum key strength requirement of 2.5 Nm .

Grade 3 : Lock with heavy unsprung lever
Grade 4 : Lock with manufacturer's own specification furniture
11. Key identification

BS EN 1634 Part 1: 2000
Is the European Fire Safety Satandard for determining the fire resistance of door and shutter assemblies including hardware designed for installations within openings incorporated in vertical seprating elements (doorsets).
The UK construction Products Regulations require locks for use on fire doors to be safe and durable. British/European standards BS EN 12209 is the recognised way of demonstrating compliance and requires that an official Notified Body proves both the product and the manufaturer's factory product controls are satisfactory before CE marking can be applied. It is recommended that locks fitted to Fire doors should be CE marked.
CE marking is the easiest and safest route to providing compliance with the latest UK Construction Products Regulations for hardware used on fire, smoke and escape doors.
BS8300 & Approved Document "M" of the Building Regulations
These documents recommend that locks should have a minimum of a 55mm backset and that the centres should be a minimum of a 72mm. Locks with keyways above the cylinder are also suitable.
