This European Standard specifies the performance requirements which external blinds and awnings shall fulfil when fitted to a building. It deals also with the significant hazards for construction, transport, installation, operation and maintenance (see list of significant machine hazards in Annex B). It applies to all external blinds and awnings as well as similar products whatever their design and nature of the materials used, as follows and defined in EN 12216: folding arm awning, trellis arm awning, pivot arm awning, slide arm awning, vertical roller awning, marquisolette, façade awning, skylight awning, conservatory awning, Pergola awning, Dutch awning, insect screen; brise-soleil. This European Standard does not cover the wind resistance of fixed nor semi-fixed products, e.g. Dutch awnings, fixed or mobile and brise-soleil. These types of products shall be evaluated according to the relevant calculation methods (such as Eurocodes). This European Standard covers the wind resistance of the retractable part of Pergola awnings. However, the structural part of these products is not covered and shall be evaluated according to the relevant calculation methods (such as Eurocodes). The products covered by this European Standard may be operated manually, with or without compensating springs or by means of electric motors (power operated products).
