The DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) has published a new document for the industrial door sector – Changes to CE marking of Fire and Smoke Resisting Industrial Doors – which discusses what is required under the new legislation.
CE marking of powered doors, whether fire/smoke resisting or not, has been mandatory under the Machinery Directive since 1995; this remains a constant and will not change.
As of November 2019, there are significant additional requirements for CE marking of both powered and manual fire and smoke resisting doors covered by EN 13241:2003+A2:2016. This is because compliance with the Construction Products Regulation (EU) 305/2011 (CPR) became mandatory for both manual and powered fire resisting industrial doors on this date.
Whilst many manufacturers have been CE marking their products under the new rules on a voluntary basis during the co-existence period, the new rule will became compulsory from November 2019.
