More on Delay Action Closers & Fire Certification
Any ‘Delay Action’ closer (if it has appropriate fire certification) can be used on a fire door if the ‘Delay Action’ setting is adjusted in accordance with BS EN 1154:
Any incorporated delayed action function shall be capable of adjustment to less than 25 seconds between the door closing angles of 120° and the end of the delay zone.
‘Delay Action’ Testing to BS EN 1154
It is possible to gain certification to BS EN 1154 in respect of a ‘Delay Action’ feature. However, there is no Briton rack & pinion closer incorporating a double lever arm, which conforms. This is due to inconsistencies in tolerances between piston & bore and ball valves in ports which produce varying times on the delay.
The only closer type capable of meeting the requirements of the test consistently are cam action closers – examples with full certification include the Briton 2700 Series.
Without the ‘Delay Action’ compliance you cannot claim CE Certification of the ‘Delay Action’ feature, which is why you will find all DoPs (Declaration of Performance Document) for rack & pinion closers have ‘N/A’ (not applicable), or similar, against that particular section. This does not mean that closers listed in this manner are not CE marked – but it does mean the ‘Delay Action’ feature is not included in the available features or in the certification.
