Door Handles-D&D Hardware

BS EN 1906 classifies door furniture by using an 8 digit coding system. A similar classification applies to all building hardware productStandards 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.

1.Category of Use

Four grades are identified:


Grade 1: medium frequency of use with a high incentive to exercise care and a small chance of misuse.

E.g. internal residential doors;

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 chance of misuse. 

E.g. public office doors;

Grade 4: high frequency of use on doors which are subject to frequent violent use. 

E.g. football stadiums, oil rigs, barracks , public toilets, etc.

Two grades of durability are identified:

Grade 6: Medium use-100 000 test cycles
Grade 7: High use-200 000 test cycles

The test undertaken to achieve these gardes involve the application of additional forces to the door furniture in order to simulate the conditions of use likely to be experienced in the field.


3.Tset door mass
No requirement

4.Fire resistance 
Two grades of fire resistance are identified:


Grade 1: Not approved for use on fire /smoke door assemblies.

Grade 2: Suitable for use on fire /smoke door assemblies.

 Mild Resistance- minium requirement for internal use(24h salt spray test)

Grade 2

 Moderate Corrosion Resistance (48h salt spray test)

Grade 3

 High Corrosion Resistance (96h salt spray test)

Grade 4

Extremely High Resistance (240h salt spray test)- recommended for use in exposed marine atmosphere or very  pooluted industrial environments.

Note: Products intended to devlop a natural patina(such as bronze or brass)are not required to comply with any requirements.





Five grades are identified:

Grade 0
