10 Mechanical properties
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
10.1 Replacement:

Underfloor, flushfloor and onfloor CTS/CDS shall have adequate mechanical strength.

Compliance is checked by the tests specified in 10.3 and 10.5 according to Annex AA.

10.2 Not applicable.
10.3 Impact test
10.3.2 Impact test for installation and application
Addition:

10.3.2.101 Systems components only intended to be mounted underfloor are not tested. The test

is carried out on an assembly made of one or more trunking lengths or ducting lengths with the

relevant system component, if any, to fulfil the various functions of the system and prepared

according to the manufacturer’s instructions. More than one assembly may be necessary to fulfil

the various functions of the system. In each direction, the length L of trunking length or ducting

length coming out of the functional area associated with the function of the system is as long as

the width W of the trunking length or ducting length, or 250 mm, whichever is the greater. The

tolerance of L is ± 25 mm.

NOTE 1 Functional area refers, for example, to a fitting, an apparatus mounting device or a junction as shown in

Figure 106.

The samples are mounted on a rigid smooth support such as a plywood board 16 mm thick, with a

50 mm minimum spacing between the assembly and the edge of the support.

NOTE 2 For flushfloor CTS/CDS additional provision may be included, if necessary, to simulate the influence of the

floor material on the side of the product.

NOTE 3 Other system components may be included, if necessary, to prevent movements. These system components

are the system components to terminate the trunking length or ducting length, if any. When there is no such system

component, a system component chosen by the manufacturer is used.
Examples for arrangement are shown in Figure 107.

Before the test non metallic system components and composite system components are aged at a

temperature declared according to Table 3 for (168 ± 4) h continuously.

10.3.2.102 The impact test apparatus according to Clause 4 of EN 60068-2-75:1997, is mounted

on a solid wall or structure providing sufficient support.

The samples are placed in a cabinet at a temperature declared according to Table 2.

10.3.2.103 After 2 h, each sample is, in turn, removed from the cabinet and immediately placed in

position in the impact test apparatus.

At 12 s ± 2 s after the removal of the sample from the cabinet the hammer is allowed to fall so that

an impact is applied as far as possible perpendicular to the accessible region of the sample likely

to be the weakest. Compliance with impact applied before 10 s provides also compliance with this

test of the standard.
In preparation.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 50085-2-2:2009
– 9 – EN 50085-2-2:2008

NOTE 1 The region likely to be the weakest can be on the relevant system component but can also be on a trunking

length or a ducting length.
No impact is applied to knockouts, membranes and the like.
No impact is applied within 50 mm of any open extremity of the sample.

NOTE 2 When an other system component has been included at an extremity of the sample to prevent movements,

this extremity is still considered open.

Instead of placing the samples in a cabinet and applying the impact at 12 s ± 2 s after the removal

of the sample from the cabinet, it is allowed to apply the impact in a climatic chamber at a

temperature declared according to Table 2 on samples placed at this temperature for 2 h.

Compliance in the climatic chamber is sufficient. In case of failure in the climatic chamber,

compliance using the cabinet provides compliance with the standard.
10.3.2.104 After the test

- the assemblies shall show no cracks or similar damage visible to normal or corrected vision without

magnification and
- the assemblies shall remain intact and
- the service unit cover shall be in a position
such that safety is not impaired.

In case of doubt, the test of 14.1.3 is carried out on the impacted samples to check that the

declared degree of protection against access to hazardous parts is maintained. The declared

degree of protection against access to hazardous parts is either the additional letter directly

declared by the manufacturer according 6.7.3, if any, or the degree of protection against access to

hazardous parts indirectly declared by the manufacturer according 6.7.1.

NOTE Any cracks in internal dividers which are not likely to impair electrical safety or use are ignored. Electrical

safety can be impaired by any of the following ways:

• when the impact creates a sharp edge on a partition which may damage insulated conductors or cables (see 9.1);

• when the impact decreases the protective separation between compartments in such a way that the protective

separation becomes ineffective (see 9.11).
10.4 Not applicable.
10.5 External mechanical load test
Addition:

10.5.101 Underfloor CTS/CDS, flushfloor CTS/CDS and onfloor CTS/CDS shall have sufficient

mechanical strength against external mechanical loads likely to occur during transport, storage,

installation and normal use.
Compliance is checked by the tests of 10.5.102, 10.5.103 and 10.5.104.

Any part for temporary use only during the installation phase does not need to comply with these tests but

may be included for the test of 10.5.102 to allow compliance of other parts.
A summary of tests is given in Annex AA.
10.5.102 Load test for installation

The test is carried out on an assembly made of one or more trunking lengths or ducting lengths

with the relevant system component, if any, to fulfil the various functions of the system and

prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions. More than one assembly may be necessary

to fulfil the various functions of the system. In each direction, the length L of trunking length or

ducting length coming out of the functional area associated with the function of the system is as

long as the width W of the trunking length or ducting length, or 500 mm, whichever is the greater.

The tolerance of L is ± 25 mm.

NOTE 1 Functional area refers, for example, to a fitting, an apparatus mounting device or a junction as shown in Figure 106.

The samples are mounted on a horizontal rigid smooth support such as a plywood board 16 mm

thick, with a 50 mm minimum spacing between the assembly and the edge of the support.

NOTE 2 Other system components may be included, if necessary, to prevent movements. These system components are the

system components to terminate the trunking length or ducting length, if any. When there is no such system component, a system

component chosen by the manufacturer is used.
Examples for arrangement are shown in Figure 107.

Before the test non metallic system components and composite components are aged at a

temperature declared according to Table 3 for (168 ± 4) h continuously.

A vertical force is applied centrally for 120 s ± 5 s to a steel cube of 50 mm ± 0,5 mm with an edge

radius of approximately 1 mm.

The cube is placed approximately in the middle of the length of the sample and in the most

unfavourable position in the width of the sample. In the case of multi-compartment CTS/CDS

whose partition(s) provide support, the middle of the largest compartment is selected.

To allow for settlement of the sample, a pre-load of 25 N ± 5 N is applied and then the

measurement apparatus is calibrated to zero.

For the test of CTS/CDS intended to be installed underfloor under a raised floor a force of

250 N (+ 10 N, 0) is applied.

For the test of CDS intended to be embedded underfloor and CTS/CDS intended to be installed

flushfloor a force of 750 N (+ 30 N, 0) is applied except on parts of which the cover remains visible

and above the floor level during the whole installation phase for which a force of 250 N (+ 10 N, 0)

During the test the vertical displacement of the cube shall be less than 25 mm.

Cracks are allowed but the maximum vertical displacement of the cube shall not be exceeded.

10.5.103 Load test for application - Force applied through small surface area

The test is carried out on an assembly made of one or more trunking lengths or ducting lengths

with the relevant system component, if any, to fulfil the various functions of the system and

prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions. More than one assembly may be necessary

to fulfil the various functions of the system. In each direction, the length L of trunking length or

ducting length coming out of the functional area associated with the function of the system is as

long as the width W of the trunking length or ducting length, or 500 mm, whichever is the greater.

The tolerance of L is ± 25 mm.

NOTE 1 Functional area refers, for example, to a fitting, an apparatus mounting device or a junction as shown in Figure 106.

The samples are mounted on a horizontal rigid smooth support such as a plywood board 16 mm

thick, with a 50 mm minimum spacing between the assembly and the edge of the support.

NOTE 2 For flushfloor CTS/CDS additional provision may be included, if necessary, to simulate the influence of the floor

material on the side of the product.

NOTE 3 Other system components may be included, if necessary, to prevent movements. These system components are the

system components to terminate the trunking length or ducting length, if any. When there is no such system component, a system

component chosen by the manufacturer is used.
Examples for arrangement are shown in Figure 107.

Before the test non metallic system components and composite system components are aged at a

temperature declared according to Table 3 for (168 ± 4) h continuously.

The surface of the sample which can be exposed to traffic is loaded with the force declared

according to 6.102.

A vertical force is applied through a steel cylinder of 13,3 mm ± 0,1 mm diameter with an edge

radius of 1 mm providing a contact surface of approximately 1 cm with a minimum length of

30 mm (Figure 108).

The cylinder is placed approximately in the middle of the length of the sample and in the most

unfavourable position in the width of the sample. In the case of multi-compartment CTS/CDS

whose partition(s) provide support, the middle of the largest compartment is selected.

To allow for settlement of the sample, a pre-load of 50 N ± 10 N is applied and then the

measurement apparatus is calibrated to zero.

The force is gradually increased up to the value declared according to 6.102 with a tolerance

(+ 4 %, 0) over 15 s ± 5 s and maintained for 60 s ± 1 s.
During the test the samples shall show no deflection greater th
