Ta dokument določa zahteve, preskusne metode in lastnosti materiala za predprostore bivalnih vozil. Uporablja se za predprostore, ki se jih postavi in pritrdi.
Ta dokument se ne uporablja za:
a) nadstreške za zaščito pred soncem: strukture, ki jih je mogoče odstraniti z vozila in se uporabljajo za zaščito pred soncem, vendar niso namenjene ali izdelane za zagotavljanje zavetja pred vetrom, dežjem ali snegom;
OPOMBA 1: Nadstreške za zaščito pred soncem je mogoče uporabljati z dodatno sprednjo steno in stranskimi stenami, ki tvorijo zaprt prostor, vendar ta prostor ne izpolnjuje zahteve predprostora, kakor je opredeljeno v tem dokumentu.
b) zunanje žaluzije: strukture, ki so trajno pritrjene na vozilo in se uporabljajo za zaščito pred soncem, vendar niso namenjene ali izdelane za zagotavljanje zavetja pred vetrom, dežjem ali snegom;
OPOMBA 2: Zunanjo žaluzijo je mogoče uporabljati z dodatno sprednjo steno in stranskimi stenami, ki tvorijo zaprt prostor, vendar ta prostor ne ustreza zahtevam predprostora, kakor je opredeljeno v tem dokumentu.
c) fiksne predprostore: trajni predprostor, ki ni namenjen za mobilno uporabo.
PRIMER: Predprostori, opremljeni s kvadratnimi aluminijastimi okvirji ali lesenimi podpornimi konstrukcijami z možnostjo namestitve oken in vrat bivalnega prostora.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2. www.iso.org/directives

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received. www.iso.org/patents

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 83, Sports and other recreational facilities and

equipment.

This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition (ISO 8936:2007) which has been technically

revised.
The main changes include the following:
a) terms and definitions updated;
b) new type of awnings “Light-weight awnings (Type L)” added;
c) roofs and walls divided into “coated and laminated” and “non-coated”;

d) in 5.1.3 “Awning perimeter size”, the relation between awning and vehicle clarified;

e) in 5.2.1 “General”, requirements inner tents specified in regard to ISO 5912;
f) in 5.8 “Ventilation”, requirements for sewn in ground sheets formulated;
g) in 5.12 “Resistance to roof loading”, requirements modified;
h) in 6.6.2 “Rainshower test”, test method modified;

i) in 6.6.3 “Resistance of seams and material to water ingress from pooled water (trough test)”, test

method for seam tightness simplified and two new figures added;
j) Clause 7 “Marking” modified and restructured;

Introduction
General

The principal objective of this document is to simplify it from previous editions. It combines test

requirements and product requirements into one document, providing manufacturers, specifiers and

consumers with a single reference point for the safety and quality performance of awnings.

The traditional frame assembly mechanism for awnings has been a system of structural tubular or

sectioned metal poles. This has recently evolved to include flexible pole systems and inflatable tube

systems. Over the course of revision of this document it has been possible to consider some but not all

aspects of these changes. In particular no specific requirements have been given for inflatable systems.

It is intended that these will be addressed if required at the next revision.
Environmental considerations

Every product affects the environment in the course of its lifecycle from raw material acquisition

through production, distribution and use, to disposal. Environmental impacts are consequences of the

consumption of energy and resources and the generation of waste, as well as the emission of substances

into air, water and soil. The magnitude of the environmental impacts during the various lifecycle

changes depends on a number of choices made in the design of the product, such as the materials used,

production methods, and considerations related to maintenance and recycling. Manufacturers and

distributors of awnings for leisure accommodation vehicles should consider the environmental impact

of their product by, for example:
— avoiding the use of environmentally harmful substances;

— selecting the best available technology and techniques to reduce consumption of energy and

materials;
— considering use of recycled materials for product and packaging;

— encouraging responsible end of life disposal by the user including guidance on separation and

identification of any recyclable components and packaging;

— using materials, components, and manufacturing facilities which have declared documented;

— environmental policies.

Requirements and test methods
1 Scope

This document specifies requirements, test methods and material performance characteristics for

vehicle awnings. It applies to awnings intended to be pitched and struck.
This document is not applicable to:

a) sun awnings: structure detachable from the vehicle which is used to provide shelter from the sun,

but is not designed or constructed to provide shelter from wind, rain or snow;

NOTE 1 A sun awning can be used with additional front and side panels to form an enclosure, but this

enclosure would not meet the requirements of an awning as defined in this document.

b) external blinds: structure permanently fixed to a vehicle which is used to provide shelter from the

sun, but is not designed or constructed to provide shelter from wind, rain or snow;

NOTE 2 An external blind can be used with additional front and side panels to form an enclosure, but this

enclosure would not meet the requirements of an awning as defined in this document.

c) fixed awnings: permanent awning which is not designed for mobile use.

EXAMPLE Awnings equipped with square aluminium frames or timber supporting structures and the

possibility to install living compartment windows and doors.
