Boards of this type are only suitable for use in biological hazard class 1 of EN 335 3. Humid conditions are defined in terms of service class 2 of EN 1995-1-1, which is characterised by a moisture content in the material corresponding to a temperature of 20 °C and a relative humidity of the surrounding air only exceeding 85 % for a few weeks per year.

The values listed in this standard relate to product properties but they are not characteristic values to be used for design calculations.

Holzwerkstoffe - Flachsspanplatten - Anforderungen

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen an Flachsspanplatten für allgemeine Zwecke, für nicht tragende
Zwecke und für Inneneinrichtungen zur Verwendung im Trockenbereich sowie für Flachsspanplatten für nicht
tragende Zwecke zur Verwendung im Feuchtbereich fest.
ANMERKUNG 1 Der Trockenbereich ist ist durch die Nutzungsklasse 1 nach ENV 1995-1-1 definiert, gekennzeichnet
durch einen Feuchtegehalt des Materials, der einer Temperatur von 20 °C und einer relativen Luftfeuchte der umgeben-
den Luft entspricht, die nur für einige Wochen pro Jahr einen Wert von 65 % übersteigt. Platten dieser Art sind nur für die
Anwendung in der biologischen Gefährdungsklasse 1 nach EN 335-3 geeignet. Der Feuchtbereich ist durch die Nutzungs-
klasse 2 nach ENV 1995-1-1 definiert, gekennzeichnet durch einen Feuchtegehalt des Materials, der einer Temperatur
von 20 °C und einer relativen Luftfeuchte der umgebenden Luft entspricht, die nur für einige Wochen pro Jahr einen Wert
von 85 % übersteigt.
ANMERKUNG 2 Auf diese Norm wird in EN 13986 für Anwendungen im Bauwesen Bezug genommen.
ANMERKUNG 3 Platten nach dieser Norm können als F1-, F2-, F3- oder F4-Platten bezeichnet werden.
Die in dieser Norm angegebenen Werte beziehen sich auf Produkteigenschaften; es sind keine charakteristi-
schen Werte, die für konstruktive Berechnungen verwendet werden können.

EN 335-3. Humid conditions are defined in terms of service class 2 of EN 1995-1-1, which is characterised by a moisture

content in the material corresponding to a temperature of 20 °C and a relative humidity of the surrounding air only
