SANS 1253:2016 Safety Standards
Allandel doors comply fully with SANS 1253:2016, and meet or exceed the test criteria. We remain committed to strictly adhere to the provisions of SANS 1253:2016 so as to provide our clients and the occupants of buildings with peace of mind. Their lives are protected when Allandel doors are in service.
We have obtained a test report confirming that the prototype tested complies fully with the following criteria set out in SANS 1253:2016:
NOTE: Allandel only use approved glazing that can withstand the criteria permitted for each Class and that conforms to the criteria set out under the relevant SANS codes.
3. Closing device:
NOTE: Allandel door leaves are sized to suit the frame and when the frames are built in true / plumb, these tolerances will be achieved.
Each door assembly shall have metal identification plates fixed to each leaf and frame in a visible position, clearly displaying the following information:
6. Tested prototype and variations from the prototype:
Shall either be tested or approved / certified in writing by the testing authority to be acceptable. There should be no likelihood of it to jeopardise its fire resistance when placed in service.
Doors may be made smaller than the tested prototype, however the thickness and clearances may not be altered.
The door width may be increased by 15% and the height by 10%, on condition that all other aspects of the door remain identical to that tested.
This is a snapshot of the SANS regulations.
