Over deze norm
This European Standard is applicable to hand fed solid fuel fired inset appliances, with or without functional modification, that operate without firedoors or operate with fire doors either as closed only or as closed or open, and also includes open fires fired by solid fuel and which appliances are listed under categories 1b, 1c, 2b, 2c, 3a, 3b and 3c of Table 1. The surround of these appliances are integrated with the building with the exception of free-standing appliances and those inset appliances under categories 1c, 2c, and 3c of Table 1 which are installed into a fireplace recess or enclosure. These appliances provide heat into the space where they are installed. Additionally, where fitted with a boiler, they also provide domestic hot water and/or central heating. This European Standard also covers ‘Kachelofen’ and ‘Putzofen’ inset appliances, having nominal heat outputs up to 15 kW in accordance with category lc of Table 1. This European Standard specifies requirements relating to the design, manufacture, construction, safety and performance (efficiency and emission) of inset appliances including open fires fired by solid fuel (hereafter referred to as “appliance(s)”) and provides instructions for them. Furthermore, it also gives provisions for evaluation of conformity i.e. initial type testing (ITT) and factory production control (FPC) and marking of these appliances. These appliances may burn either solid mineral fuels, peat briquettes, lignite briquettes, natural or manufactured wood logs or be multi-fuel in accordance with the appliance manufacturer's instructions. This standard is not applicable to appliances with fan assisted combustion air or appliances that are mechanically fired. Open fireplace components such as a bottomgrate with associated firefront which the manufacturer supplies for installation into an existing heat resistant, insulated firebox are not covered by this standard.
