Resilient, textile, laminate and modular multilayer floor coverings - Essential characteristics

This standard specifies the essential requirements for:
-   resilient floor coverings manufactured from plastics, linoleum, cork or rubber, excluding loose-laid mats;
-   textile floor coverings, excluding loose-laid (barrier) mats and rugs;
-   laminate floor coverings
Floor panels for loose-laying containing at least one of the above products are also covered by this standard
It reproduces the system(s) for Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) of product(s), to which the product shall be submitted.
The products are intended for use as floor coverings within a building according to the manufacturer's specifications.
This standard does not apply to floor coverings containing asbestos, carcinogens or mutagens of categories 1A and 1B  
This standard does not specify product requirements, which are not related to health, safety and energy saving. Such requirements are covered by separate European Standards (see Annex A, informative).
To perform correctly, floor coverings require correct installation and maintenance. However, this document does not cover installation or maintenance, but does give advice on minimising slippage hazards (see Annex C, informative).

European foreword

This document (EN 14041:2018) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 134 “Resilient,

textile and laminate floor coverings”, the secretariat of which is held by NBN.

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 July 2018, and conflicting national standards shall be

withdrawn at the latest by October 2019.

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

patent rights. CEN not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document supersedes EN 14041:2004.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements for construction works of

Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011.

For relationship with Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011, see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral

part of this document.

The major changes between this version of the standard and the superseded version can be

summarized as the following:
General

The product group “modular multilayer floor coverings” has been introduced in the title, scope and has

been added throughout the remaining text were applicable. (including Annex ZA).
4. Essential Characteristics
4.2 Content of dangerous substances

Following the mandate M/119 rev on Dangerous Substances and the answer prepared by CEN/TC 134

and approved by the EC, the former clause “4.2 Content of pentachlorophenol (PCP)” has been

integrated into a more detailed “Clause on content of dangerous substances.
4.6 Slip resistance

The content of this clause has been updated and, according to the answer to the mandate, it is now

applicable to all types of floor coverings covered by this standard.
4.7 Thermal resistance (Thermal conductivity)

The content of this clause has been updated and, according to the answer to the mandate, the option to

either declare thermal resistance or thermal conductivity has been added.
5. Assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP)

This clause replaces the former clause “Evaluation of conformity”; an official template for this clause is

provided by CEN, which has to be implemented. Clause 5 follows this template.
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
SIST EN 14041:2018
EN 14041:2018 (E)
Annex D (normative) Product parameters for defining product families

The former Annex D has become Clause 5. The current Annex D is an updated version of the previous

Clause D.8. Separate sections per product group for the different essential characteristics have been

introduced. The following clauses have been added:
D.2 Product parameters related content of dangerous substances

D.3 Product parameters related to emission of dangerous substances into indoor air

D.4 Product parameters related to slip resistance performance
D.5 Product parameters related to electrical behaviour performance
Annex E (normative) Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH)

This Annex has been added as there was no standardized test method available for determining

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) at the moment of submitting this standard to CEN formal vote.

Annex F (normative) Determination of phthalates

This Annex has been added as there was no standardized test method available for determining

phathalates at the moment of submitting this standard to CEN formal vote.

Annex G (informative) Example for a Supplier declaration on raw materials or constituent

products
This Annex has been added as guidance for preparing a supplier declaration.
Annex H (normative) Azocolourants – Restricted Aromatic Amines

This Annex has been added to provide more details on the restricted aromatic amines and azo-dyes.

Annex I (normative) List of pictograms used for an alternative way of expressing the

performance of certain characteristics

This Annex has been added to present the list of characteristics which also may be declared in form of

(a) pictogram(s).

Annex ZA (informative) Relationship of this European Standard with Regulation (EU)

No.305/2011 (Construction Products Regulation)

The revised template for the Annex ZA for construction product standards has been implemented.

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,

Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia,

France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta,

Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies the essential characteristics for the following types of floor coverings:

— resilient floor coverings, excluding loose-laid mats;

— textile floor coverings, excluding loose-laid (barrier) mats, runners and rugs;

— laminate floor coverings;
— modular multilayer floor coverings.

These types of floor coverings may or may not be formulated to enhance the performance of one or

more essential characteristics.

These types of floor coverings are intended for internal use as floor coverings within a building

according to the manufacturer's specifications.

For these types of floor coverings this European standard specifies the assessment methods for

determination of performances of the essential characteristics, the ways of expressing their

performance, the systems for assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) their

marking.

This standard does not specify requirements of floor coverings, which are not related to the essential

characteristics as defined in Regulation (EU) No 305/2011.
This standard does not cover installation or maintenance of the floor coverings.
