DIN EN 13126-3, DIN 18267 and RAL-GZ 607/9

European standard DIN EN 13126 concerns architectural fittings for windows and French doors. Part 3 of this series of standards specifies requirements and test methods for operating handles, in particular for turn-tilt, tilt-turn and turn-only fittings.

DIN EN 13126-3 for window handles

Two categories of use for handles were defined for the first digit of the classification key, taking into account the various quality levels in Europe. The superior grade 2 reflects the tried-and-tested product properties of existing RAL window handles. The seventh digit defines three security grades for lockable window handles. They were designed in such way to match the requirements of the European burglar resistance standard DIN EN 1627.

The European standard DIN EN 13126 does not stipulate any requirements in terms of window handle dimensions. These requirements are defined in DIN 18267 (e.g., square spindle □ 7 mm, screw fixing distance 43 mm).

The revised DIN EN 13126-3 also forms the basis for the revised quality guideline RAL-GZ 607/9 (September 2012 edition). As a minimum requirement, the window handles must meet grade 2 of category of use, lockable window handles grade 2 or 3 in the security category. Additionally, RAL-GZ 607/9 uses the following classifications:

Obtaining the RAL Quality Mark requires compliance with the minimum requirements defined in accordance with DIN EN 13126-3, constant internal and external supervision by a recognised test institute. This ensures a consistently high level of quality. The classification key in DIN EN 13126-3 is explained here.
