Windows and doors - Air permeability - Test method

This European Standard defines the test method to be used to determine the air permeability of completely assembled windows and doorsets of any material, when submitted to positive or negative test pressures. This test method is designed to take account of conditions in use, when the window or doorset is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification and the requirements of relevant European Standards and codes of practice.
This European Standard does not apply to the joints between the window or doorset frame and the building construction.

Fenster und Türen - Luftdurchlässigkeit - Prüfverfahren

Diese Europäische Norm legt das Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung der Luftdurchlässigkeit von vollständig zusammengebauten Fenstern und Türen aller Werkstoffe unter Einwirkung von positiven und negativen Prüfdrücken fest. Die Prüfung erfolgt unter Berücksichtigung der Nutzungsbedingungen von Fenstern und Türen, die nach den Festlegungen des Herstellers und den Anforderungen der entsprechenden Europäischen Normen und der Regelwerke der Baupraxis montiert worden sind.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt nicht für die Fugen, die zwischen dem Fenster- bzw. Türrahmen und dem Bauwerk liegen.

Fenêtres et portes - Perméabilité à l'air - Méthode d'essai

La présente Norme européenne définit la méthode à utiliser pour déterminer la perméabilité à l'air de fenêtres et de bloc- portes complètement assemblées quels que soient les matériaux constitutifs, quand elles sont soumises à des pressions d'essai positives et négatives. La présente méthode d'essai est conçue pour tenir compte des conditions en oeuvre quand le bloc-porte ou la fenêtre est installée conformément aux prescriptions du fabricant et aux exigences des normes européennes et des règles de mise en oeuvre pertinentes.
La présente Norme européenne ne s'applique pas aux joints entre le dormant de la fenêtre ou de la porte et la structure du bâtiment.

Okna in vrata - Prepustnost zraka - Preskusna metoda

Ta evropski standard opredeljuje preskusno metodo, ki se uporablja za ugotavljanje prepustnosti zraka v celoti sestavljenih oken in vrat iz katerega koli materiala pri izpostavljenosti pozitivnim ali negativnim preskusnim tlakom. Preskusna metoda je zasnovana tako, da upošteva pogoje uporabe, ko sta okno ali vrata nameščena v skladu s specifikacijami proizvajalca ter zahtevami ustreznih evropskih standardov in pravili ravnanja.
Ta evropski standard se ne uporablja za spoje med okenskim ali vratnim okvirjem in gradbeno konstrukcijo.
