DIN EN 1906 European and German standardisation for hardware - the requirements and test methods

DIN EN 1906 defines the requirements and methods of testing for lever and knob handle door furniture.

DIN EN 1906 describes performance parameters. It does not define dimensions for hardware or hardware components.

The background to these requirements is to simulate actual everyday use. This is achieved by defining load requirements and taking subsequent clearance measurements before and after continuous function tests on hardware. The various performance parameters are described in DIN EN 1906. These are based on frequency of use and the expected area of use. The load requirements and test forces are graded accordingly. A classification code was introduced to enable different products to be compared.

Door hardware tested to DIN 1906 is described by an 8 digit classification code. Each number of of the classification key corresponds to a specific category:

1
2 3 4 5 6 7 8
4 7 - D 1 3 0 U
