Vgrajeni gasilni sistemi - Cevni sistemi - 2. del: Cevni koluti s plosko cevjo

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve in preskusne metode za sestavo in lastnosti sistemov požarnih cevnih kolutov s plosko cevjo za namestitev v stavbah, ki so trajno priključeni na oskrbo z vodo in so namenjeni uporabnikom stavbe. Prav tako določa zahteve glede vrednotenja skladnosti in označevanja teh izdelkov. Zahteve standarda lahko na splošno veljajo tudi na drugih področjih, na primer v pomorstvu ali v agresivnih okoljih, vendar so v takšnih primerih morda potrebne dodatne zahteve.
