Page 3EN 12865:2001ForewordThis European Standard has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 89 "Thermalperformance of buildings and building components", the secretariat of which is held by SIS.This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publicationof an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by September 2001, and conflictingnational standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by September 2001.According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizationsof the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium,Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy,Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UnitedKingdom.This standard is one of a series of standards which specify test methods for the thermal andmoisture related properties of buildings, building components, building products and buildingmaterials.Annex A is informative.IntroductionDriving rain is often the cause of building damage due to the penetration of wind driven raininto or through external wall elements. The amount of driving rain impinging on a local partof an external wall surface depends on the rainfall and wind speed occurring simultaneously,the exposure of the building and the architectural / structural details of the surface. Nationalstandards define areas with different classes of driving rain severity which may be used todetermine the protection needed against driving rain.Protection can be achieved by measures such as:a)

architectural / structural design to reduce the amount of driving rain (e.g. roofoverhangs);b)

ventilated or unventilated air space behind cladding (any water penetrating thecladding flows down on the internal face of the cladding and is drained out at specifiedopenings; an air flow in a ventilated air space due to stack effects accelerates thedrying);c)

rendering on external wall surfaces with appropriate properties to absorb or repel thewater during driving rain and allow drying during the following drying period;d)

proper detailing to prevent water ingress around openings;e)

providing a defined water tightness of the wall element including existing joints so asto limit water penetration to an acceptable level.This standard specifies a test method to determine the resistance of wall elements to drivingrain, thus mainly covering measure e).SIST EN 12865:2002

Page 4EN 12865:2001The specified test conditions, with pulsating air pressure difference, simulate in a simplifiedway the dynamic nature of rain and wind pressure against a wall.Test methods for the determination of the resistance to driving rain under static air pressuremay lead to different results.This standard is intended to be used by product specifications, except where specific productshave properties which make application of this standard difficult.1ScopeThis standard specifies a general method for assessing the driving rain resistance of wallsystems by determining the water tightness of wall systems or part of wall systems underpulsating air pressure.2Terms and definitionsFor the purposes of this standard, the following terms and definitions apply.2.1driving rain resistanceability of the test specimen to resist water penetration under the conditions of the test2.2water penetrationwater continuously or repeatedly reaching the inside surface of the test specimen or parts ofthe specimen not designed to be wetted or where the water is not drained out2.3pulsating air pressure differenceair pressure difference across the specimen alternating periodically between zero and aspecified higher level2.4limit of water tightnessmaximum pulsating air pressure difference, in Pa, for which water penetration does not occurduring the test2.5water absorptionmass of absorbed water per area, in kg/m²SIST EN 12865:2002

Page 5EN 12865:20013PrincipleA test specimen is fitted into the driving rain test apparatus, the external surface of the testspecimen is sprayed continuously with water at a specified rate while the pulsating airpressure difference is increased in specified steps. The time of water penetration, if any, themaximum air pressure difference applied and the location of any penetrations are noted.4ApparatusThe driving rain test apparatus shall include:a) chamber with an adjustable opening to which the test specimen is fitted;b) means of providing a controlled differential air pressure across the test specimen with acontrol uncertainty of ± 5 %;NOTE 1

The control should be able to keep the pulsating pressure difference within theabove mentioned accuracy even when the air permeability varies during the test due tothe water film on the surface and the water absorbed by the test specimen.c) device able to apply rapid controlled changes of the differential air pressure operatingbetween defined limits (see clause 6.2 and Figure 1 for the sequence of a typical pressurepulse);d) spraying system applying a continuous film of water all over the surface of the testspecimen;The applied amount of water consists of two parts:- run-off water, 1,2

l/(m·min), evenly distributed at the top of the test specimen;- driving rain, 1,5

l/(m2 ·min), evenly distributed over the external surface of the testspecimen.NOTE 2

A spraying device, usually calibrated in litres per minute, which complies withthis requirement is shown in annex A.The distribution of driving rain can be controlled using driv
