What's this all about?

Force limitation is one common way of avoiding crushing, shearing and drawing-in hazards on power operated doors and gates.

»When a crushing, shearing or drawing-in hazard is avoided by the provision of a force limitation system, this shall be checked by measuring the forces as specified in clause 5 (of EN 12445:2000). The measured values shall be lower or equal to those mentioned in Annex A of EN 12453:2000 [...]«
BS EN 12445:2000 - 4.1.1.2

The closing and opening forces of automatic doors and gates can me measured with specially designed force testers. This tool helps to create uniform and clean force measurement reports.

How do I use this tool?





First click the "Object info" tab control to fill in information about your customer and the gate/door system you are about to measure.

Next click the navigation tab "Presets" and enter your name, your company name and the calibration expiry date of your force tester.

Finally you can deal with the force test. Click the "Test result" tab to enter the descriptions of the points of measuring you have chosen, add the according admissible dynamic force limit (EN 12453:2000 A.2.1) and - of course - type in the measured values of the dynamic force (Fdyn), the dynamic time (tdyn) and the static force remaining five seconds after impact (FEnd). To indicate wheather the measured values meet the limits or violate them, choose between the "PASS"- or "FAIL"-statement by click-toggling it accordingly. Additional testpoints can by added by clicking the + (plus) button underneath the third testpoint row. Up to ten points of measuring are supported. To delete one of the extra testpoints, please click the grey X within the according tespoint description field.

If you would like to add a free text comment to your report (i.e. to explain the test results to your customer), simply type into the Textarea ("Remarks...") underneath the last tespoint row.

Before you can finally create your PDF-Report you may want to save the testpoint description texts and the according force limit values you entered to a browser cookie for further use. To do this, please make sure once again that your browser is accepting cookies and click the "Save Testpoints" button. Wait for the disk-icon to change to green.
