Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies the requirements of pavers and accessories manufactured from clay for use in the flexible form of construction (pavers laid with narrow sand-filled joints on a sand bed) and in the rigid form of construction (pavers laid with cementitious mortar joints on a similar mortar bed, itself placed on a rigid base). The standard applies to rectangular and other shaped units intended as construction products mainly for exterior use in pavements but which may also be used internally. The flexible form of construction will be subjected to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, while the rigid form of construction is usually subjected to pedestrian traffic. It excludes products intended for refractory and chemical engineering applications and clay floor tiles. It also excludes clay masonry units. This Standard does not deal with the tactility or visibility of units. This European Standard specifies the characteristics and classes of performance measured according to test methods given in normative annexes. It provides for product marking and for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.
