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

DIN EN 13126-3 for window handles

DIN EN 13126-3 for window handles

The European standard DIN EN 13126 comprises 19 parts relating to hardware for windows and door height windows. Part 3 has been fully revised (February 2012 edition) and uses a 9-digit classification key to define requirements and testing procedures for handles, particularly Tilt and Turn, Tilt-First and Turn-Only hardware.

 

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. Additionnally, RAL-GZ 607/9 uses the following classifications:

 

 

  • RAL
    Window handles with RAL-compatible click mechanism, min. 10,000 tilt and turn cycles, min. 48 h corrosion resistance in salt spray test.

 

RAL minimum requirements in accordance with DIN EN 13126-3:

 

Category of use 2
Durability 3/180
Mass -
Fire resistance 0
Safety in use 1
Corrosion resistance 2
Security 0/0
Application C1
Test size -

 

 

 

 

  • RAL100
    Keyed or non-keyed lockable window handle with RAL-compatible click mechanism, min. 10,000 tilt and turn cycles, min. 48 h corrosion resistance in salt spray test, 100 Nm resistance against forceful turning and pulling, non-keyed locking mechanism or keyed locking mechanism with at least 100 possible locking variations.

 

RAL100 – minimum classification in accordance with DIN EN 13126-3:

 

Category of use 2 2
Durability 3/180 3/180
Mass - -
Fire resistance 0 0
Safety in use 1 1
Corrosion resistance 2 2
Security 2/1 * 2/3 **
Application C1 C1
Test size - -

* Non-keyed locking mechanism
** Keyed locking mechanism

 

 

 

 

  • RAL200
    Keyed or non-keyed lockable window handle with RAL-compatible click mechanism, min. 10,000 tilt and turn cycles, min. 48 h corrosion resistance in salt spray test, 200 Nm resistance against forceful turning and pulling, non-keyed locking mechanism or keyed locking mechanism with at least 100 possible locking variations.

 

RAL200 – minimum classification in accordance with DIN EN 13126-3:

 

Category of use 2 2
Durability 3/180 3/180
Mass - -
Fire resistance 0 0
Safety in use 1 1
Corrosion resistance 2 2
Security 3/1 * 3/3 **
Application C1 C1
Test size - -

* Non-keyed locking mechanism
** Keyed locking mechanism

 

 

 

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.
