This document specifies requirements for roofing and cladding products used for assembly into coverings for wall claddings, linings and pitched roofs, made from aluminium sheet with or without additional surface treatment (organic coating or anodising).
This document establishes general characteristics, definitions and labelling of the products, together with requirements for the materials from which the products can be manufactured. It is intended to be used either by manufacturers to ensure that their products comply with the requirements or by purchasers to verify that the products comply before they are despatched from the factory. It specifies the requirements for products which enable them to meet all normal service conditions. Products can be prefabricated or semi-formed products as well as strip, coil and sheet for on-site-formed applications (e.g. standing seam roofs).
This document applies to all discontinuously laid and fully supported roofing and cladding products made of aluminium sheets. No requirements for supporting construction, design of roof system and execution of connections and flashings are included.
This document does not apply to self-supporting aluminium sheets that are covered by EN 508-2.
