This European Standard specifies requirements for roofing products used for assembly into coverings for pitched roofs, made from metallic coated steel sheet with or without additional organic coatings.
The European Standard establishes general characteristics, definitions and labelling for 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 semiformed products as well as strip, coil and sheet for on-site-formed applications (e.g. standing-seam and clip fixroofs).
The European Standard applies to all discontinuously laid and fully supported roofing products made of steel sheets. No requirements for supporting construction, design of roof system and execution of connections and flashings are included.
NOTE The European Standard deals partly with flat products, partly with formed (prefabricated) products. Requirements for preformed self-supporting products are given in EN 508-1.
