scope:

This European Standard specifies requirements for the design, construction and operation of platform barrier systems positioned at the edge of a station platform immediately adjacent to rail or other guided vehicles in stations and boarding points for passenger services and includes: - requirements for the fixed structure and fixed parts along the platform; - physical requirements for the movable doors and gates normally used by passengers; - requirements for emergency doors; - requirements for driver access doors; - requirements for platform extremity doors; - requirements for management of safety risks that are particular to barrier systems. This European Standard also gives requirements for the integration of barriers with the overall rail system including: - synchronization of vehicle and platform barrier doors or gates; - audible and visible alerts; - integrity of control systems; - testing of the barrier installation; - operational performance; - requirements relating to other interfacing sub-systems, notably signalling and vehicles. For barrier systems set back from the platform edge, which are used to control access to trains or for crowd management, relevant sections of the document can be used as guidance. This European Standard applies to all actors involved in the implementation and system integration of a platform barrier system, including owners, designers, installers and operators. This European Standard does not cover barrier systems using bars, ropes, etc. or which operate in a vertical direction. Nevertheless, compliance with relevant clauses from this document can be used in developing safety justifications for these alternative types of barrier system. This European Standard applies to light rail services, e.g. metro and tramway systems and heavy rail services as requested by a project specification. It applies to small systems, working in conjunction with a single vehicle, or with larger systems working with a complete train. This European Standard applies to platform barrier systems used at sub-surface stations, enclosed surface stations (e.g. those enclosed for the purposes of providing an air-conditioned environment for waiting passengers), and those fully in the open-air. This European Standard does not cover normative requirements relating to fire performance or fire requirements arising from use of platform barrier systems as fire barriers.
