European foreword
This document (prEN 1794-2:2021) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 226 “Road
equipment”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 1794-2:2020.
This document is part of a series that consists of the following parts under the general title “Road traffic
noise reducing devices — Non-acoustic performance”:
— Part 1: Methods of determination of the mechanical and stability characteristics
— Part 2: Methods of determination of the general safety and environmental characteristics
— Part 3: Reaction to fire – Burning behaviour of noise reducing devices and classification
The main change compared to the previous edition is:
— The Annexes A to F: the acceptance criteria given in the previous version of this standard have
been deleted and transferred to EN 14388:2021.

Introduction
While performing their primary function, road traffic noise reducing devices should not pose hazards
to road users or other people in the vicinity or to the environment at large. Noise reducing devices
should not reflect light in such a way as to prejudice road safety. They should be made from materials
which do not emit noxious fumes or leachates as the result of natural or industrial processes, or as the
result of fire. Noise reducing devices should allow a means of escape by road users and access by
operatives in the event of an emergency or for maintenance.

(normative)
Safety in case of brushwood fire
A.1 General
A road traffic noise reducing device can be exposed to fire arising from dry vegetation or other material
in close proximity. More severe fires from spilt fuel can arise as the result of traffic accidents.
Where a road traffic noise reducing device is in close proximity to property it can also be necessary to
consider the need to ensure that fire is not spread from the highway.
Where flammable systems are used, it is recommended that firebreaks of fire-resistant materials or
other design
