4 Manufacture
4.1 General

A manufacturer of steel/aluminium building parts shall maintain compliance in accordance with the

EN 1090 series.

Steel/aluminium components for permanent used demountable stand shall be manufactured according

to the requirements of EN 1090-2, EN 1090-3.

Steel/aluminium components for temporary sub-structures shall be manufactured according to the

requirements of EN 17293.
4.2 Materials
Steel alloy shall conform to EN 1090-2.
Aluminium alloy shall conform to EN 1090-3.

All aluminium and steel alloy shall be accompanied by inspection certificates according to the EN 1090

series.
Steel shall be protected by one of the methods given in EN 12811-2.

The design life, performance, strength and durability of plywood decking shall be specified.

4.3 Inspection

All products shall be inspected after fabrication to ensure conformity to the design drawings. The

manufacturer shall ensure that the product is inspected prior to being placed on the market.

5 Design
5.1 Basic design requirements

Demountable stands shall fulfil the national requirements for fire escape and emergency evacuation.

Demountable stands are used for a wide spectrum of events both indoors and outdoors ranging from

minor local events to major international events accommodating thousands of spectators.

The layout of the seating deck and the geometry of the deck are required to provide for the safe ingress

and egress of spectators.

Criteria concerning sightline, layout and protection from falling are similar to permanent and temporary

seating decks. The nature of vertical support of permanent and temporary seating decks is significantly

different as is the ratio of vertical load to dead load.

The elements of the structure of a stand of movable type shall be lockable and/or non-removable

manually without a special tool.

The design shall be carried out following the ultimate limit state (ULS), including load bearing capacity,

stability against sliding laterally, lifting and overturning.

EN 13200-6:2020 (E)
5.2 Sightlines

Requirements and recommendations pertaining to sightlines are given in EN 13200-1.

Sightlines for demountable stands shall meet the standards required for permanent installation. In cases

where this is not possible the matter shall be addressed by safety management measure as specified in

EN 13200-8.

A seating place is required to provide a minimum viewing standard together with a sufficient level of

safety for the spectators. Viewing standards refer to the ability of a seated spectator to see a

predetermined focal point in the activity area. This viewing standard is often referred to as a sight line.

5.3 Basic specification
5.3.1 General

Seats shall be of constant depth throughout the length of a row. Where the seats tip-up automatically the

width of the clearway shall be measured between the foremost projection of the tipped-up seat and the

back of the seat in front.

With respect to relative lateral positioning, seat centres shall be a minimum of 450 mm and a

recommended value of 500 mm.

In tiered seating blocks the riser height of steps in passageways shall not exceed 200 mm. The

recommended maximum riser height is 170 mm.

The minimum riser height or step height is 100 mm. The riser height shall be uniform throughout the

access stairs and preferably be uniform with connecting stairs.

Closed risers are preferred and shall be designed to minimize any tripping hazard.

5.3.2 Row depth
Requirements and recommendations are given in EN 13200-1.
5.3.3 Deck structure

The deck structure may include seats, accommodations for people with special needs, protections against

falling, platforms, vomitory landings, stairways, passageways and gangways.

It is recommended that for a gangway gradient exceeding 28°, structural elements that manually assist

ascending and descending spectators are provided. If the gradient exceeds 28° and the gangway width

exceeds 1 800 mm, a central handrail that permits spectator crossover is preferred.

In some cases the deck structure of the demountable stands has an empty riser which entails the danger

of objects falling towards the bottom; in these cases the substructures of the stands will be closed to the

public.

The protection against falling objects down the separating elements of the stands shall be conform to

EN 13200-3.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 13200-6:2020
EN 13200-6:2020 (E)
5.3.4 Substructure

Connectors between the deck structure and the substructure and between all elements of substructure

shall provide a continuous transmission of forces.
The substructure can be one of three types:

NOTE It is important to pay attention to Annex A and most particularly to paragraph A.3, A.4 and A.6 that

provide essential recommendations regarding safe and secure use of demountable stands.

a) Prefabricated frame:

Stand primarily assembled from welded frame modules that self-lock in a manner that ensures the

stability of the stand. (See Figure 1).
