Fixed firefighting systems - Hose systems - Part 1: Hose reels with semi-rigid hose

This European Standard specifies requirements and methods of test for the construction and performance of fire hose reel systems with semi-rigid hose for installation in buildings, permanently connected to a water supply, for use by the occupants.
It also provides requirements on evaluation of conformity and marking of these products.
Its requirements may apply in general for other applications, for example in marine applications or in aggressive environments, but additional requirements can be necessary in such cases.
This European Standard is applicable to both manual and automatic fire hose reels for installation with and without cabinets.

Ortsfeste Löschanlagen - Wandhydranten - Teil 1: Schlauchhaspeln mit formstabilem Schlauch

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren für Bauart und Ausführung von Schlauch-haspeln mit formstabilem Schlauch zum Einbau in Gebäuden fest, die fest mit der Wasserzufuhr verbunden und zum Gebrauch durch jede Person geeignet sind.
Es werden auch Anforderungen an die Normkonformitätsprüfung und CE-Kennzeichnung der Produkte festgelegt.
Die Anforderungen dieser Norm können grundsätzlich auch für andere Anwendungen zugrunde gelegt werden, zum Beispiel im Schiffbau oder bei aggressivem Umgebungen, in diesen Fällen können jedoch weitergehende Anforderungen notwendig sein.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt für Schlauchhaspeln sowohl mit handbetätigten als auch automatischen Ventilen jeweils zum Einbau mit oder ohne Schrank.

Installations fixes de lutte contre l'incendie - Systèmes équipés de tuyaux - Partie 1: Robinets d'incendie armés équipés de tuyaux semi-rigides

La présente Norme européenne prescrit les exigences et méthodes d'essais de fabrication et de performances des robinets d'incendie armés équipés de tuyaux semi-rigides, destinés à être installés dans des bâtiments raccordés en permanence à une alimentation en eau, pour être utilisés par les occupants.
Elle spécifie également des exigences applicables à l’évaluation de la conformité et au marquage de ces produits.
Ses exigences peuvent concerner d'autres cas, par exemple les applications en atmosphères marines ou corrosives ; dans ces cas, des exigences supplémentaires peuvent s’avérer nécessaires.
La présente Norme européenne s'applique aux robinets d'incendie armés, manuels ou automatiques, destinés à être installés ou non dans des armoires.

Vgrajeni gasilni sistemi - Cevni sistemi - 1. del: Cevni koluti s poltogo cevjo

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve in preskusne metode za sestavo in lastnosti sistemov požarnih cevnih kolutov s poltogo 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 lahko v takšnih primerih potrebne dodatne zahteve. Ta evropski standard se uporablja za ročne in avtomatske požarne cevne kolute za namestitev z omarico ali brez omarice.

Introduction

Fire hose reels in proper condition provide a very effective firefighting facility with a continuous supply of water

available immediately.

The requirements of this European Standard have been specified to ensure that hose reels can be operated

efficiently by one person and that such systems have a long service life.
1 Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements and methods of test for the construction and performance of

fire hose reel systems with semi-rigid hose for installation in buildings, permanently connected to a water

supply, for use by the occupants.

It also provides requirements on evaluation of conformity and marking of these products.

Its requirements may apply in general for other applications, for example in marine applications or in

aggressive environments, but additional requirements can be necessary in such cases.

This European Standard is applicable to both manual and automatic fire hose reels for installation with and

without cabinets.
