ICS Code (Laundry appliances): 97.060
scope:

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following:

This European Standard deals with the safety of electrical operated spin extractors intended to be used by trained users in i.e. hotels, hospitals, factories, in light industry and on farms. It also covers spin extractors which are declared for commercial use in an area open to the public and operated by lay persons e.g. in laundrettes, communal laundry rooms. Their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single phase and 480 V for others.

This European Standard deals with the common hazards presented by spin extractors that are encountered by all persons. However, in general, it does not take into account:

a) persons (including children) whose:

1) physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or

2) lack of experience and knowledge,

prevents them from using the spin extractors safely without supervision or instruction,

b) children playing with the spin extractors.

Attention is drawn to the fact that:

- for commercial electric spin extractors intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements might be necessary,

- in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.

This European Standard does not apply to:

a) industrial laundry machinery with a drum volume > 150 l (EN ISO 10472‑2),

b) spin extractors intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).

For the purpose of this standard, the term "appliance" as used in Part 1 is to be read as "Spin extractors intended for commercial use".
