active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 May 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 36
ICS Code (External sewage systems): 93.030
ICS Code (Plastics pipes): 23.040.20
ICS Code (Pipelines and its parts for external sewage systems): 23.040.05
scope:

This document specifies the definitions and requirements for unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) manholes and inspection chambers intended for non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage systems up to a maximum depth of 6 m from ground level to the invert of the manhole or inspection chamber.

This document covers manholes and inspection chambers, with bases having a flow channel, and their joints to the piping system.

Manholes and inspection chambers are intended to be used in pedestrian or vehicular traffic areas outside the building structure.

NOTE 1 The intended use in underground installation outside the building structure is reflected in the marking of products by the application area code "U".

NOTE 2 Products complying with this document can also be used in non-traffic areas.

NOTE 3 Products complying with this standard can be installed in underground applications without additional static calculation.

NOTE 4 Shallow chambers are specified in EN 13598-1 [1].

Manholes and inspection chambers complying with EN 13598-2 are made from a prescribed set of components that are manufactured from unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U), polypropylene (PP), polypropylene with mineral modifier (PP-MD) or polyethylene (PE) and assembled together.

NOTE 5 The complete manhole or inspection chamber assembly can also include items which are not covered by this document (for example near surface or surface components).

NOTE 6 Manholes and inspection chambers can be supplied with covers, frame covers and gratings complying with the relevant part of EN 124 [2].

Manholes and inspection chambers complying with EN 13598-2 may be used for storm-water systems.

Manhole and inspection chamber components can be manufactured by various methods e.g. extrusion, injection moulding, rotational moulding, low-pressure moulding or fabricated.

NOTE 7 Manholes and inspection chambers can be site assembled from different components, but can also be manufactured as a single unit.

NOTE 8 Manholes and inspection chambers can be subject to national regulations and / or local provisions.
