Fuhr's emergency exit locks save the day

15 September 2016

On 10 July 2015 the standard for fire door sets EN16034 entered The Official Journal of the European Union. Meaning that CE marking of fire door sets is underway giving specifiers and consumers peace of mind that they are purchasing a reliable product.

CE marking began on 1 December 2015 beginning a 3 year transition period for manufacturers to obtain compliance.

It is much more complex than ‘standard’ door sets and windows with different requirements for product manufacture auditing, sampling, single and double doors, glazing systems, hardware and much more.


It was legislation that probably set the greatest challenge to those who supply panic doors. Admittedly, CE marks cannot be ‘transferred’ from components to finished products: Just because a lock has a CE mark doesn’t mean the door it is used on will carry a CE mark – the whole product must go through testing as an entity.

However, common sense suggests that choosing components with a CE mark should help the accreditation procedure run more smoothly.

Remarkably, there is still only one panic door lock that has a CE mark for both its single and double door versions: FUHR’s multisafe and panic locking series.

Combining style and function and providing the very highest levels of security and reliability FUHR’s multisafe range offers solutions for virtually every application and includes latch/deadbolt mortise locks, multipoint locking systems and automatic locks right up to completely motor drive security systems.
