Information for manufacturers of doors in emergency and escape routes
The EN 14351-1 product standard for windows and external doors sets out that external doors in emergency and escape routes must, among other things, be eligible for approval. Eligibility for approval is met if there is a problem-free combination of door wings, window and doors frames, and fitting parts. Until now, the eligibility for approval has only been set out in the EN 14351-1 standard for external doors and windows. The eligibility for approval is also being included as part of the current revision of the standard for internal doors (EN 14351-2). Therefore, in future, these requirements will also apply for escape doors in indoor areas.
