Status: pending
Page Count: 12
ICS Code (Explosion protection): 13.230
ICS Code (Doors and windows): 91.060.50
scope:

This document specifies the criteria which windows, doors, shutters as well as curtain walling elements need to satisfy to achieve a classification when submitted to the test method described in prEN 13124-1:2022.

This document concerns a method of test against blast waves generated by using a shock tube facility to simulate explosion loadings. The document considers free-field high explosive events in the order of 100 kg to 2 500 kg TNT at distances from about 35 m to 50 m, described by the fixed loading levels EPR0 to EPR4. Scenarios characterized by variable blast parameters for further high explosive and gas explosion scenarios, reaching a classification according to prEN 13124-1:2022, can also be specified.

Load profiles which cannot be reproduced with the shock tube might be reproduced by arena testing following EN 13123-2 and EN 13124-2.

This document is applicable to blast profiles generated in a shock tube test facility used to simulate high explosive and gas explosions on windows, doors, shutters as well as curtain walling systems, complete with their frames, infills and fixings, for use in both internal and external locations in buildings. It gives no information on the explosion resistance capacity of the wall or other surrounding structure.
