Q: What is EN12101-2:2003 and is that the latest standard?
A: The EN12101 series of harmonised standards apply to smoke ventilation products. These standards often have specific requirements relating to installation or testing practice. For example, EN12101: Part 2 dictates that unless the actuator and vent profile are tested together as a system, in a smoke environment and at an accredited facility, it is not compliant; therefore, its safety can’t be guaranteed and a DoP cannot be issued.
Although there is a EN12101-2:2017 version of the standard, this has been blocked from citation in the OJEU by the European Commission. This means that it is not yet possible to CE Mark products according to this standard. Until the new standard is cited, CE Marking of products in scope must follow EN12101-2:2003.
Q: Do the vent and actuator need to be tested together to be compliant?
A: Compliance to the EN12101-2 smoke vent standard was mandated into UK law via the Construction Products Regulation in 2013. To comply both actuator and vent profile have to be tested together, as a single product, to the test annexes of the standard. Proof of compliance is the issuing of a Declaration of Performance (DoP) by the company placing the product onto the market.
Q. What Free Area Calculations should I use?
A: The type of Free Area Calculation you should use depends on the building and if it is a high rise residential or non-high rise residential building. Detailed Free Area guidance is contained within the Tested Solutions documents. Register for access at www.secontrols.com/ register. Your dedicated Account Manager will also assist with your enquiry.
