Foreword

This document (EN 263:2008) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 163 “Sanitary

appliances”, the secretariat of which is held by UNI.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical

text or by endorsement, at the latest by August 2008, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at

the latest by August 2008.

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

rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document supersedes EN 263:2002.

The performance criteria for baths and shower trays for domestic purposes made from crosslinked cast acrylic

sheets are divided into two European Standards as follows:

prEN 198 Sanitary appliances - Baths made from crosslinked cast acrylic sheets - Requirements and test

methods.

prEN 249 Sanitary appliances - Shower trays made from crosslinked cast acrylic sheets - Requirements and

test methods.

This revised version of EN 263 includes the following amendments, compared to the version of 2002:

 Deletion of reference to ISO 62 standard for water absorption test and replacement with the description of

the test itself.

 Modification of eosine concentration in resistance to chemical and stains test.

According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following

countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech

Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
