1 Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for rain caps that are used as

components, subject to flue gas, in order to protect against rain entry into the chimney flues.

Rain caps which are part of components of a system chimney or other components of a chimney such as

terminals, are not covered by this European Standard.

!Rain caps which have not the same opening on all sides or do not have at least the same shape and

cross section on the opposite sides are not covered by this European Standard."

It also specifies the requirements for marking, manufacturers’ instruction, product information and

attestation and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP).

NOTE Rain caps according to this standard are suitable for both dry and wet chimney applications.

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 16475-7:2016+A1:2020
EN 16475-7:2016+A1:2020 (E)
4.6.2 Rainwater ingress

When the rain cap is tested according to the test method described in 5.3.1, the mass of the water

collected in the flue shall not exceed 0,05 mm /s per millimetre of flue diameter.

Rain caps with the overall dimension providing an angle of at least 27° from the vertical of a line from

the edge of the rain cap to the edge of flue are considered to meet the requirement under no wind

conditions.

It is recommended that the size of the rain cap is at least of the same size as the exterior dimension of

the top of the chimney in order to protect the top of the chimney from rain where it is otherwise not

protected.
4.6.3 Flow resistance of the rain cap

The manufacturer shall declare the coefficient of flow resistance of the rain cap.

The declared value shall be determined according to the test method described in 5.3.2 or obtained

from data given in Table B.1.

A zeta value of maximum 1.5 is recommended. A free area of at least 2 times the flue area satisfies this

recommendation, without testing.
4.6.4 Ice formation

A rain cap subject to ice formation shall have an overlap of at least 50 mm greater than the chimney

outer dimension in all directions.
5 Testing, assessment and sampling methods
5.1 Mechanical resistance and stability
5.1.1 General

The rain cap shall be mounted according to the manufacturer's instructions on the top of a test

assembly supported.

supported (see Figure 1).
