External doors are often used as emergency exits which are also burglary retardant in stores, retail shops, function rooms, concert halls, industrial buildings, etc. They can also be used indoors…
Doors subject to bad weather may be certified by European standards (EN 1027 and EN 12208). This performance feature guarantees the water tightness of external doors. To do this, the doors will be subjected to driving rain combined with increasing pressure to simulate very heavy downpours.
Thanks to their robust Metal+ structure, Heinen doors do not suffer the leaf distortion that ordinarily occurs over time and heightens the risk of leaks.
Heinen has also paid particular attention to the weak points usually encountered on these external doors:
|European standards||EN 12208
|Resistance classes||Method A1
|Single doors: > 9A (E750)
Double doors: 6 A
1 Method A: products fully exposed
2 Method B: products partly exposed
Tests carried out on single and double doors at the CSTC (accredited laboratory), in accordance with current European standards:
The standards provide for different classes using two spraying methods, A or B, class A being the most restrictive and the most common (A = incline of 24° / B = incline of 84°).
