|Publication Date:||1 March 2011|
|ICS Code (Solid fuel heaters):||97.100.30|
This European Standard is applicable to freestanding or inset roomheaters fired by solid fuel, without functional modification, that operate with fire doors either as closed only or as closed or open and which are listed under categories 1a and 2a of Table 1. This European Standard is also only applicable to non-mechanically fired roomheaters as listed under categories 1a and 2a of Table 1.
This European Standard specifies requirements relating to the design, manufacture, construction, safety and performance (efficiency and emission) of roomheaters fired by solid fuel (hereafter referred to as "appliance(s)") and provides instructions for them. Furthermore, it also gives provisions for evaluation of conformity i.e. initial type testing (ITT) and factory production control (FPC) and marking of these appliances.
These appliances provide heat into the space where they are installed. Additionally, where fitted with a boiler, they also provide domestic hot water and/or central heating. These appliances may burn either solid mineral fuels, peat briquettes, natural or manufactured wood logs or be multi-fuel in accordance with the appliance manufacturer's instructions.
This standard is not applicable to appliances with fan assisted combustion air or appliances that are mechanically fired.
