Language in which you want to receive the document


This European Standard specifies the criteria which windows, doors and shutters shall satisfy to achieve a classification when submitted to the test method described in EN 13124-1.

This European Standard concerns a method of test against blast waves generated by using a shock tube facility to simulate a high explosive detonation in the order of 100 kg to 2 500 kg TNT at distances from about 35 m to 50 m.

This European Standard is applicable to blast overpressure generated in a shock tube test facility used to simulate a high explosive detonation on windows, doors and shutters, complete with their frames and infills, 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.
