Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies the health, safety and energy saving requirements for: - resilient floor coverings manufactured from plastics, linoleum, cork or rubber, excluding loose-laid mats; - textile floor coverings, excluding loose-laid mats and rugs; - laminate floor coverings; - floor panels for loose-laying. It also specifies procedures for testing for the evaluation of conformity of the products and the requirements for marking and labelling. The products are intended for use as floor coverings within a building or externally, according to the manufacturers' specifications. The European Standard does not apply to floor coverings containing asbestos. This European Standard does not specify requirements unrelated to health, safety and energy saving, which are covered in the separate European Standards for these products, listed in annex A. To perform correctly, products covered by this standard require correct installation and maintenance. This standard does not, however, cover installation or maintenance, but does give advice on minimising slip hazards.
