This document specifies the characteristics and performance for design External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (design ETICS) with rendering systems on thermal insulation products, delivered as a kit by a system holder, and used as thermal insulation for buildings.

This document covers design ETICS kits on walls which are made of masonry (bricks, blocks, stones, etc.) or concrete (cast on site or as prefabricated panels) with or without rendering systems. This document covers ETICS with thermal insulation products made of cellular glass, expanded polystyrene, expanded cork, mineral wool, phenolic foam, rigid polyurethane foam, extruded polystyrene foam or wood fibre as far as they comply with Annex B.

A design ETICS kit comprises a prefabricated insulation product bonded onto the wall, or mechanically fixed using anchors, profiles, etc., or a combination of adhesive and mechanical fixings. The insulation product is faced with a rendering system consisting of one or more layers (site applied), one of which contains reinforcement. The rendering system is applied directly to the insulating panels, without an air gap or disconnecting layer.

This document is not applicable for:

a) Mechanically fixed kits with supplementary adhesive with the mass per unit area of the rendering system of > 40 kg/m2 in end use conditions intended by the system holder and/or mechanical fixed kits with the mass per unit area of the rendering system plus thermal insulation product of > 65 kg/m2 intended by the system holder.

b) Mechanically fixed kits without supplementary adhesive with the mass per unit area of the rendering system of > 30 kg/m2 in end use conditions intended by the system holder and/or mechanical fixed kits with the mass per unit area of the rendering system plus thermal insulation product of > 60 kg/m2 intended by the system holder and/or with a thickness of the thermal insulation product intended by the system holder of > 200 mm. For thermal insulations products with thicknesses ≤ 200 mm fixed with anchors without supplementary adhesive, the bending deformation of the mechanically fixing devices is assumed as negligible.

c) Purely bonded kits with or without supplementary mechanically fixing devices with bonded area (coverage) less than 40 %, intended by the system holder.

d) Mechanically fixed kits with supplementary adhesive with bonded area (coverage) less than 40 %, intended by the system holder.

e) Kits incorporating a thermal insulation product providing a declared thermal resistance of less than 1 m2K/W.

External insulation and finishing systems (EIFS) according to ISO 17738 are not covered by this standard.

This International Standard contains requirements for the installation of exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) using material which meet the requirements of ISO 17738-1 and has been designed for wall applications in accordance with ISO 17738-3.

This document includes installation requirements for the EIFS materials which include the water resistive barrier (WRB) and decorative projections as part of the cladding system for walls.

This document does not include requirements for the structural design of the substrate or for the integrity of the substrate to which the EIFS is to be attached, nor requirements for installation or repair of the substrate before installation commences.

This document does not include requirements for the knowledge, skills or abilities that an EIFS installer needs for installation of the system.

The installation of EIFS on horizontal surfaces exposed to direct precipitation is outside the scope of this document.

This document does not purport to address all the health and safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this document has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish health and safety practices, in conjunction with any existing applicable regulatory requirements, prior to its use.

This document provides ergonomic requirements and recommendations for accessible doors and handles of consumer products so that users from a population with the widest range of user needs, characteristics and capabilities are able to open and close the doors of consumer products with ease.

It applies to all kinds of consumer products equipped with doors and handles. It also applies to doors through which items can be inserted or retrieved, and to those that are used for maintenance purposes. Each of its design considerations is based on ergonomic principles that are necessary for making the doors and handles of consumer products accessible to a wider range of users, including those with disabilities.

This document specifies the connecting dimensions of WC pans and WC suites regardless of the materials used for their manufacture.

This document does not apply to siphonic action WC pans and WC suites.

NOTE 1 Other connecting dimensions are permitted, e.g. special designs of WC pans, if the manufacturer supplies or recommends the appropriate fittings.

NOTE 2 The shape of the appliance in the figures is for illustration only; it in no way prejudices the final shape of the appliance, which is left to the initiative of the manufacturer.

(1) This document:

— gives methods and procedures for the estimation of the in-situ compressive strength and characteristic in-situ compressive strength of concrete in structures and precast concrete components using direct methods (core testing) and indirect methods, e.g. ultra-sonic pulse velocity, rebound number;

— provides principles and guidance for establishing the relationships between test results from indirect test methods and the in-situ compressive strength;

— provides procedures and guidance for assessing the conformity with the compressive strength class of a recently supplied concrete.

(2) This document provides requirements for determining the in-situ strength at test locations and the characteristic strength of test regions, but how this information is to be applied needs to be considered in the light of the specific situation and engineering judgement applied to the specific case.

(3) This document does not include the assessment of the quality of concrete for properties other than compressive strength, e.g. durability-related properties.

(4) This document is not for the assessment of conformity of concrete compressive strength in accordance with EN 206 or EN 13369, except as indicated in EN 206:2013+A1:2016, 5.5.1.2 or 8.4.

(5) This document does not cover the procedures or criteria for the routine conformity control of precast concrete components using either direct or indirect measurements of the in-situ strength.

This document defines test and calculation methods for the determination of the reflection and transmission characteristics to be used to determine the thermal and visual comfort performance classes of external blinds, internal blinds and shutters, as specified in prEN 14501:2018. This document also specifies the method to determine the darkening performance of external blinds, internal blinds and shutters, as specified in prEN 14501:2018. This document applies to the whole range of shutters, awnings and blinds defined in EN 12216, described as solar protection devices in this document. Some of the characteristics (e.g. gtot) are not applicable when products are not parallel to the glazing (e.g. folding-arm awnings). NOTE 1 Informative Annex D presents an approach for the determination of characteristics in case of projectable products. Retro-reflecting products are outside the scope of this document for reflectance measurements. NOTE 2 Retro-reflecting products refer to products for which the reflected radiation comes back to the light source in the same direction. Products using a significant amount of fluorescent are outside the scope of this document. NOTE 3 "Significant amount" refers to materials which are designed to be fluorescent or retroreflective and marketed as such. It does not refer to trace amounts of materials exhibiting fluorescence, e.g. for colour or identification purposes. Small amounts of materials such as titanium dioxide, which are not primarily included to achieve fluorescence, may be present.
