|Publication Date:||1 November 2010|
|ICS Code (Ventilation and air-conditioning systems):||91.140.30|
This European Standard specifies and classifies the component/product performance characteristics which may be necessary for the design and dimensioning of residential ventilation systems to provide the predetermined comfort conditions of temperature, air velocity, humidity, hygiene and sound in the occupied zone. It defines those performance characteristics (mandatory or optional) which shall be determined and measured and presented according to relevant test methods. It will provide a classification scheme which lead to a full definition of product properties based on European test methods described in various EN standards and gives an overview of the Test Standards in various CEN TC´s. Distinction between mandatory and optional requirement is left to each national regulations. This standard gives an informative national annex in which the member states define the valid parameters. The codification part in Clause 8 and the classification part in Clause 9 apply to the following products: mechanical supply and exhaust unit according to EN 13141-7 and EN 13141-8. This standard does not apply to other products such as filters, fire dampers, ducts, control devices, sound attenuators, which may also be incorporated in residential ventilation. This standard does not cover requirements raised by European directives, for example: Low voltage directive, EMC directive and other requirements such as corrosion, resistance and snow penetration.
