Hardware for furniture - Strength and durability of extension elements and their components

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 February 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Furniture): 97.140
scope:

This European Standard specifies test methods and requirements for the strength and durability of all types of extension elements and their components for all fields of application, except table extensions.

The tests consist of the application of loads, forces and velocities simulating normal functional use, as well as misuse, that might reasonably be expected to occur.

With the exception of the corrosion test in 6.4, the tests are designed to evaluate properties without regard to materials, design/construction or manufacturing processes.

The strength and durability tests only relate to the extension elements and the parts used for the attachment, e.g. screws.

The strength and durability tests are carried out in a test frame with specified properties. The test results can only be used as a guide to the performance of a piece of furniture.

The test results are only valid for the extension element tested. These results may be used to represent the performance of production models provided that the tested model is representative of the production model.

Ageing and influences of heat and humidity are not included.
