DESCRIPTION

BS EN 16014:2011


This standard BS EN 16014:2011 Hardware for furniture. Strength and durability of locking mechanisms is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 97.140 Furniture

This European Standard specifies test methods and requirements for the strength and durability of all types of locking mechanisms for furniture and their components for all fields of application.

This European Standard does not apply to latching mechanisms.

The tests consist of the application of loads, forces simulating normal functional use, as well as misuse that might reasonably be expected to occur.

With the exception of the corrosion test in 6.5, the tests are designed to evaluate properties without regard to materials, design/construction or manufacturing processes.

The strength and durability tests only relate to the locking mechanisms and their components and the parts used for the attachment, e.g. screws.

The strength and durability tests are carried out in particle board with specified properties. The test results can only be used as a guide to the performance of a piece of furniture.

The test results are only valid for the locking mechanisms and their components tested. These results may be used to represent the performance of production models provided that the tested model is representative of the production model.

With the exception of corrosion, ageing and influences of heat and humidity is not included.
