This document provides recommendations for the installation and use of textile floor coverings on stairs for both residential/domestic and contract/commercial purposes. It covers all products composed of textile material with a pile or non-pile use surface including the use of such products in tile form. This document is applicable only to carpets that are intended to be installed without the use of protective stair nosings. For carpets that are intended to be installed using protective stair nosings, the overall use class determines the stair suitability. NOTE 1 The use of stair nosings/edgings in public areas is often the subject of local bye-laws and legislations. NOTE 2 In many split-level dwellings, a room can have one or two steps between different levels. This situation differs from a stairway in several important respects: — the steps are usually wider and therefore traffic intensity in any one place is usually lower; — the carpet can be bent over steps in either the machine direction or the across-machine direction. On a stairway, it is normal practice to lay the carpet with the pile lying down the stairs.

This European Standard specifies the essential characteristics for the following types of floor coverings:
-   resilient floor coverings, excluding loose-laid mats;
-   textile floor coverings, excluding loose-laid (barrier) mats, runners and rugs;
-   laminate floor coverings;
-   modular multilayer floor coverings.
These types of floor coverings may or may not be formulated to enhance the performance of one or more essential characteristics.
These types of floor coverings are intended for internal use as floor coverings within a building according to the manufacturer's specifications.
For these types of floor coverings this European standard specifies the assessment methods for determination of performances of the essential characteristics, the ways of expressing their performance, the systems for assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) their marking.
This standard does not specify requirements of floor coverings, which are not related to the essential characteristics as defined in Regulation (EU) No 305/2011.
This standard does not cover installation or maintenance of the floor coverings.

ISO 6356:2012 specifies a method of evaluating the electrostatic propensity of textile and laminate floor coverings under controlled conditions. Since the potential generated varies with humidity, shoe materials, walk surface and individuals' mannerisms, the values generated by this test will not necessarily duplicate actual field experience, but will provide a relative comparison of the performance of different surfaces. For classification purposes and in cases of dispute, the measurement procedure specified in ISO 6356:2012 can be used under controlled conditions specified in the relevant classification standard or agreed between disputing parties. There may be occasions where measurements are required under non-controlled conditions, e.g. in situ measurements on installed floor coverings. The principle of measurement using the equipment specified in ISO 6356:2012 can be used to make measurements, either with the standard footwear specified or with specific footwear relevant to the end use.

This European Standard specifies a method to determine the sensitivity of a textile floor covering for change in colour or structure after water has been spilled on the surface.
This change can be due to a real colour change or to a migration and concentration of chemicals from pre-coat or backing during the drying process. This concentration of chemicals on a part of the surface is one of the major causes of accelerated uneven soiling of textile floor covering.

Laboratory evaluations carried out under controlled environmental conditions can be used for classification or quality control purposes. Tests on installed floors under uncontrolled ambient conditions can be used to determine correct installation or as part of an ongoing system verification. The important changes refer only to the specification of test methods but do not contain classification or performance requirements; the test methods refer to resistance measurement, and the specified equipment comply more with those of the other parts of EN 61340

ISO 9239-2 specifies a method for assessing the burning behaviour of horizontally mounted flooring systems exposed to a heat flux gradient in a test chamber, when ignited with pilot flames. The radiant heat gradient is higher than the one described in ISO 9239-1 in order to simulate conditions in a corridor adjacent to a room containing a fully developed fire (post-flashover). This method is applicable to all types of flooring such as textile carpets, cork, wood, rubber and plastic coverings as well as coatings. Results obtained by this method reflect the performance of the flooring, including any substrate if used. Modifications of the backing, bonding to a substrate, underlay, or other changes of the flooring may affect test results. This part of ISO 9239 is applicable to the measurement and description of the properties of floorings in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions. It should not be used alone to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of floorings under actual fire conditions.
