EN 13200-7:2014 (E) 5 Introduction This European standard has been prepared in order to specify the general design criteria for entry and exit systems (including entry and exit elements and routes) used in spectator facilities under normal and emergency conditions. Within this European Standard, minimum and recommended values for dimensions are occasionally presented. It should be recognized that these values are to be considered as values that in part, recognize different national requirements as a basic provision. The provision and nature of facilities for persons with special needs will invariably impact upon spectator facilities. Special needs embraces spectators with learning difficulties, impaired hearing, impaired vision, mobility impairment, children and elderly people. Attention is drawn to the fact that in certain countries additional requirements may be applicable due to existing national regulations. SIST EN 13200-7:2014

Risk evaluation is a procedure based on the risk analysis to determine whether the acceptable level of risk has been achieved. 3.25 free flow exit system unobstructed exit route that provides means for spectators to reach, from the viewing area exits, the final exit from the facility or a place of safety in case of an emergency 4 Entry and exit — General characteristics 4.1 General The movement of spectators within a facility is characterized by their ingress, the nature of the event and their egress upon conclusion of the event. An exceptional occurrence can initiate a full or partial emergency evacuation. Spectator movements will occur in the areas schematically indicated in Figure 1 and Figure 2 as: — viewing area; — services area; — external area. The areas are defined in EN 13200-1 (see 3.3, 3.4 and 3.18). SIST EN 13200-7:2014

EN 13200-7:2014 (E) 11 Ingress routes leading to viewing areas and egress routes leading to final exits shall be designed to enable spectators to move safely and comfortably. The design and safety management of these routes shall ensure that a spectator is able in cases of emergency to reach a place of safety following the shortest route within time required by this European Standard and by the appropriate risk assessment for emergency evacuation. The emergency exit route shall be designed not to have obstacles for spectators' evacuation and shall not pass through crowded areas. In general, the flow capacities of the individual elements that comprise the route shall be taken into account necessarily recognizing the characteristics of each element that need to be considered. For example, the configuration of a stair instead of a level passageway will affect the rate of passage. It is necessary that all exit and entry routes, including the elements that constitute them, do not converge in the primary movement direction. Convergence is not solely defined by dimension. Entry and exit routes shall not have neither narrowings nor protrusions on the walls up to an height of 2,00 m. The primary components of an ingress route will be entry elements, level walkways and probably stairs and ramps. Additional elements that can be present in ingress routes are: — queuing areas to enter the facility; — doors and gates; — devices to count spectator ingress and possibly egress; — access control elements or systems; — elevators, escalators and stair lifts; — vomitories. In considering the movement of spectators to and from service areas and concourses, both interior and exterior analyses similar to those applicable to their ingress and egress will be required. Service areas, with the facilities they provide, directly and indirectly, may be part of the escape routes of the spectators. Consequently, there is a need to avoid the placement of any physical obstacles to the exit flows of spectators from the viewing areas. Overcrowding of the service areas during the event, particularly where located in the vicinity of exits from the viewing accommodation, should be prevented. Should overcrowding be observed in any area, appropriate management procedures should be put in place. Egress can occur under normal and emergency conditions, through the exit system. Egress routes will comprise of similar elements to those present in ingress routes together with additional elements that can accommodate bulk egress. The primary components of an egress route will be level walkways and probably stairs and ramps. Additional elements that can be present in egress routes are: — doors and gates; — elevators, escalators and stair lifts; SIST EN 13200-7:2014

EN 13200-7:2014 (E) 12 — vomitories; — emergency evacuation routes; — emergency exits; — final exits; — place of safety. Standard elevators shall not contribute to an emergency egress route. Escalators shall be locked in a stationary mode and their contribution to emergency egress shall be risk assessed. Under emergency conditions, the primary objective of the system of exit routes shall be to allow the occupants of the structure to reach a place of safety by the risks deriving from the spread of fire, power failure or other situations that may create panic and other types of emergencies, waiting for help. The necessary capacity of an emergency egress route is defined by the appropriate interval for all spectators and event staff using that route to reach a place of safety from their viewing position or workplace. A risk assessment is necessary to ascertain the appropriate interval. In order to determine the time taken by individual spectators to reach their place of safety from the viewing position the characteristics of their exit route need detailed consideration. Travel distance, confluence of flows, up and down stair elements, inclined walkways and the type of event will affect travel times. In the case of disabled spectators, refuge areas shall provide accommodation for a predetermined number of people in wheelchairs whose evacuation from the refuge area can be safely progress. Egress times of evacuation from the viewing area, provided in EN 13200-1:2012, Annex E, can be a starting point in any risk assessment. In some instance, particularly for outdoor facilities, emergency evacuation through the Activity Area (field of play) may form part of an emergency egress route of an emergency evacuation. 4.2 Entry and exit for emergency services and accredited categories The location of spectator facility or of a sport complex shall provide for the ready access of rescue vehicles to approach and manoeuvre, besides ensuring evacuation towards adjacent areas. The external area shall enable rapid evacuation. Car parks and public transport locations shall not impede spectator egress. It is necessary to provide alternative entrances and exits for the emergency vehicles and personnel assigned to them. The access for emergency vehicles shall be secured at all times. A suitable area to allow air ambulances to land shall be designated for major events. Additional dedicated entry and exit points may be required for media vehicles and other services (cleaning, catering, maintenance, etc.). Suitably accredited persons (i.e. regulatory officers, competitors, venue personnel, etc.) may require dedicated entry and exit points. SIST EN 13200-7:2014

EN 13200-7:2014 (E) 13 5 Entry 5.1 General Spectators shall be provided with clear and consistent information on all aspects of entry. All entrances and entry routes shall be clearly signposted and for use during non-daylight hours be adequately lit. Turnstiles, entry points and information points shall be numbered, readily identifiable and ideally provided with tactile aids for sight-impaired or blind spectators. Advance information in braille could be given on the tickets for sight-impaired spectators. Disabled persons shall rely on clear and early notification of facilities and access routes to a greater extent than the non-disabled. 5.2 Factors affecting the entry capacity The main factors affecting the rate of entry are: — number and dispersal of access control elements and points of entry; — security arrangements at points of entry; — adequacy of directional information and communications; — means of entry e.g. cash payment, ticket or voucher; — profile of spectator body; — division of entry categories, e.g. adult, juvenile, senior citizen, or family; — design and condition of turnstiles/ point of entry; — capabilities of access control elements operators. The rate at which spectators pass through each access control element can vary and the value adopted shall be established from the existing record. Where no existing record is in place the value shall be established through a test procedure. 5.
