Sanitary tapware - Automatic shut-off valves PN 10

This European Standard is applicable to single and mixer taps with automatic shut-off for use with
sanitary appliances installed in washrooms.
It does not apply to urinal or WC flushing valves or valves which open automatically.
The purpose of this standard is to specify the marking, identification, chemical/hygiene, dimensional,
leaktightness, pressure resistance, hydraulic, mechanical endurance, and acoustical characteristics of
automatic shut-off tapware.
The tests described in all the standard are type tests (laboratory tests) and not quality control tests
carried out during manufacture.

Sanitärarmaturen - Selbstschlussarmaturen PN 10

Diese Europäische Norm gilt für selbstschließende Auslaufventile und Mischbatterien für die Ausrüstung von Sanitärausstattungsgegenständen, die in den der Hygiene dienenden Räumen (Waschräumen) installiert werden.
Sie gilt nicht für Urinal- und WC-Spüler und nicht für selbsttätig öffnende Armaturen.
Die Norm hat den Zweck, die Kennzeichnung, Identifizierung, chemische und hygienische Anforderungen, Maße, Dichtheit, Druckfestigkeit, hydraulische Anforderungen, mechanische Dauerfestigkeit und Geräusch¬verhalten von Selbstschlussarmaturen festzulegen.

Robinetterie sanitaire - Robinets à fermeture automatique PN 10

La présente Norme européenne s’applique aux robinets simples et aux mitigeurs à fermeture automatique destinés à l’équipement des appareils sanitaires installés dans les locaux d’hygiène corporelle.
Elle ne s’applique pas aux robinets d’urinoirs et robinets de chasse WC ni aux robinets à ouverture automatique.
Elle a pour objet de spécifier les caractéristiques de marquage, d’identification, chimiques/hygiéniques, dimensionnelles, d’étanchéité, de résistance à la pression, hydrauliques, d’endurance mécanique et acoustiques de la robinetterie à fermeture automatique.

Sanitarne armature - Samozaporne armature PN 10

Ta evropski standard se uporablja za enojne in mešalne pipe z avtomatskim izklopom za uporabo s sanitarnimi napravami, nameščenimi v umivalnicah.
Ne velja za ventile za izpiranje pisoarjev ali stranišč ali za ventile, ki se samodejno odpirajo.
Namen tega standarda je določiti lastnosti označevanja, identifikacije, kemične/higienske, dimenzionalne lastnosti, lastnosti nepropustnosti, odpornosti proti tlaku, mehanske vzdržljivosti ter hidravlične in akustične lastnosti avtomatske zapiralne armature.
Preskusi, opisani v vseh standardih, so tipski preskusi (laboratorijski preskusi) in ne kontrolni preskusi kakovosti, opravljeni med proizvodnjo.
