scope:

This European Standard specifies the requirements and test methods for the construction, safety, marking and rational use of energy of open fronted gas-fired independent space heaters with and without a fan to assist with the transportation of flue gases, hereafter referred to as appliances.

- that have a nominal heat input not exceeding 20 kW (based on the net calorific value);

- that are delivered with the gas-carrying components, burner(s), combustion chamber and heat exchanger fully assembled.

It does not apply to:

- closed-fronted appliances;

- decorative fuel effect appliances as specified in EN 509;

- catalytic combustion appliances;

- ducted-air appliances;

- appliances installed by means of a closure plate (see 3.3.3.3).
