Temporary edge protection systems - Product specification - Test methods

General information

40.60     Apr 21, 2022



European Standard

13.340.99     91.220  


This document specifies the requirements and test methods for temporary edge protection systems for
use during construction or maintenance of buildings and other structures.

This document applies to edge protection systems for flat and inclined surfaces and specifies the
requirements for three classes of temporary edge protection.

For edge protection systems with an arrest function (e.g. falling or sliding down a sloping roof) this
standard specifies requirements for energy absorption.

This standard includes edge protection systems, some of which are fixed to the structure and others,
which rely on gravity and friction on flat surfaces.

This standard does not provide requirements for edge protection systems intended for:

— protection against impact from vehicles or from other mobile equipment,
— protection from sliding down of bulk loose materials, snow etc,
— protection of areas accessible to the public.

This standard does not apply to side protection on scaffolds according to EN 12811-1 and EN 1004.

NOTE This does not prevent these systems to be used on temporary structures.
