This European Standard specifies the performance requirements which shutters and external venetian blinds 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 C). It applies to all shutters and external venetian blinds as well as similar products whatever their use and nature of the materials used, as follows and defined in EN 12216: - external venetian blind, roller shutter, wing shutter, Venetian shutter, flat-closing concertina shutter, concertina shutter or sliding panel shutter, with or without a system of projection. These products can be operated manually with or without compensating spring, or by means of electric motors (power operated products). The noise emission of power operated shutters and external venetian blinds is not considered to be a relevant hazard. Therefore this standard does not contain any specific requirements on noise in relation to the Machinery Directive. If not specified otherwise, the term "shutter" used in this document refers to any type of shutter or external venetian blind included in the scope of this European Standard.
