Durability of wood and wood-based products - Use classes: definitions, application to solid wood and wood-based products

This European Standard is applicable to solid wood and wood-based products.
This European Standard defines five use classes that represent different service situations to which wood and wood-based products can be exposed. This standard also indicates the biological agents relevant to each situation.
A use class is not a performance class and does not give guidance for how long wood and wood-based product will last in service.

Dauerhaftigkeit von Holz und Holzprodukten - Gebrauchsklassen: Definitionen, Anwendung bei Vollholz und Holzprodukten

Diese Europäische Norm gilt für Vollholz und Holzprodukte.
Diese Europäische Norm legt fünf Gebrauchsklassen fest, die die verschiedenen Nutzungssituationen repräsentieren, denen Holz und Holzprodukte ausgesetzt sein können. Diese Norm enthält zudem Aussagen, welche Organismen unter den jeweiligen Bedingungen von Bedeutung sind.
Eine Gebrauchsklasse ist keine Leistungsklasse und beschreibt nicht die zu erwartende Gebrauchsdauer des Holzes und der Holzprodukte.

Durabilité du bois et des matériaux à base de bois - Classes d'emploi: définitions, application au bois massif et aux matériaux à base de bois

Cette Norme européenne est applicable aux produits en bois et à base de bois.
Cette Norme européenne définit cinq classes d’emploi qui correspondent aux différentes situations en service auxquelles peuvent être exposés le bois et les matériaux à base de bois. Cette Norme indique également les agents biologiques correspondant à chaque situation.
Une classe d’emploi n’est pas une classe de performance et ne donne pas d’indication concernant la durée de vie du bois en service des produits en bois et à base de bois.

Trajnost lesa in lesnih proizvodov - Razredi uporabe: definicije, uporaba pri masivnem lesu in lesnih ploščah

Ta evropski standard se uporablja za masivni les in lesne proizvode. Ta evropski standard določa pet razredov uporabe, ki ustrezajo različnim razmeram, kjer se lahko uporabljajo les in lesni proizvodi. V standardu so opisani tudi biološki dejavniki, značilni za posamezen razred uporabe. Razred uporabe ni razred učinkovitosti in ne podaja smernic glede življenjske dobe lesa in lesnih proizvodov na določenem mestu uporabe.

Introduction

This standard gives general definitions of use classes for different service situations and is relevant to solid

wood and wood-based products.

This standard gives information on the biological agents that can attack wood and wood-based products in

defined situations.

The possibility of alignment between the three service classes of Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1-1) and the five use

classes of EN 335 has been carefully studied. It is important to note that the two systems use different criteria

to achieve different results.
Annex A gives guidance on relationships between use classes and service classes.
Annex B gives additional information for the assignment of use classes.
Annex C gives information on biological agents.

1 Scope
This European Standard is applicable to solid wood and wood-based products.

This European Standard defines five use classes that represent different service situations to which wood and

wood-based products can be exposed. This standard also indicates the biological agents relevant to each

situation.

A use class is not a performance class and does not give guidance for how long wood and wood-based

product will last in service.
2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are

indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references,

the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

EN 1001-2:2005, Durability of wood and wood-based products — Terminology — Part 2:Vocabulary

EN 1995-1-1, Eurocode 5 — Design of timber structures — Part 1-1: General — Common rules and rules for

buildings
3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in EN 1001-2:2005 and the following apply.

3.1
service situation
situation of exposure of the wood element in use
3.2
wood-based product
any products containing wood

Note 1 to entry: For instance solid wood panel, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), plywood, oriented strand board (OSB),

resin-bonded particleboard, cement-bonded particleboard or fibreboard, modified wood are wood-based products.

4 Use classes: application to wood and wood-based products
4.1 General

The differences between the use classes are based on differences in environment exposures that can make

the wood or wood-based products susceptible to biological deterioration.

NOTE Border line and extreme cases of use of wood and wood-based products exist. This can cause the assignment

of a use class that differs from that defined in this standard (see Annex B).
4.2 Use class 1 (UC 1)

Situations in which the wood or wood-based product is inside a construction, not exposed to the weather and

wetting.
The attack by disfiguring fungi or wood-destroying fungi is in
...
