EN 74-2 specifies:
-   materials;
-   design requirements;
-   specified values for resistances and stiffnesses which a coupler has to achieve under test;
-   test procedures and assessment;
for the following special couplers:
-   screw or wedge half couplers, sleeve couplers with shear studs, right angle reduction couplers and swivel reduction couplers.
It gives recommendations for on going production control.
These couplers are for use principally in temporary works. Each coupler is able to be fixed to at least one side to one 48,3 mm diameter steel or aluminium tube. For the other side of reduction couplers, this standard specifies requirements for the diameter and wall thickness of tubes.
For testing, screw couplers are tightened with a torque of 50 Nm and wedge couplers are tightened with a 500 g hammer until the jarring blow.
Other special half couplers such as half couplers attached by riveting, used mainly for members of prefabricated scaffolds, are outside the scope of this document.
NOTE   Information on design using special couplers is given in Annex B.

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.
