This European Standard specifies requirements determining the safety, structural strength and durability of all types of seating that are permanently fastened to the floor and/or wall, whether in bench or individual seat form.
This standard does not apply to linked seating not fastened to the floor and/or walls and street furniture.
It does not include requirements for resistance to ageing, degradation, flammability, the effect of ambient temperature and the durability of upholstery materials.
The standard has two annexes:
- Annex A (normative) Additional test methods;
- Annex B (informative) Test severity in relation to application.
