EN 14528:2007 (E) 3 Foreword This document (EN 14528:2007) 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of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2007, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2009. This document supersedes EN 14528:2005. This standard is one of a series of harmonized standards for sanitary appliances which have been prepared under the Mandate M/110 "Sanitary Appliances" which was given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association to allow CE marking under the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC). For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. The main reason for the revision of standard is the incorporation of the overflow requirement according to the amendment to Mandate M/110 and of the new designation and marking approach according to latest decisions taken by CEN/TC 163. 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, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

EN 14528:2007 (E) 4 1 Scope This European Standard specifies the functional requirements and test methods for bidets used for domestic purposes and made from either ceramics or stainless steel. NOTE 1 All drawings are examples only, other forms are permissible. NOTE 2 For the purposes of this standard the term ‘domestic purposes‘ includes use in hotels, accommodation for students, hospitals and similar buildings, except when special medical provisions are required. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this standard. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 35, Pedestal bidets with over-rim supply — Connecting dimensions EN 36, Wall hung bidets with over-rim supply — Connecting dimensions 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 bidet sanitary appliance for washing the genital area whilst seated

NOTE See Figures 1 and 2
Figure 1 — Wall-hung bidet
EN 14528:2007 (E) 5

Figure 2 — Pedestal bidet 3.2 cleanability characteristic which allows surfaces intended to come into contact with water to be visibly smooth, non-absorbent and free from unacceptable internal corners, such that they can be kept visibly free from dirt and/or stains when subject to a regular maintenance regime, which may include, when appropriate, specific instructions for use and care, as specified by the manufacturer 4 Requirements 4.1 Connecting dimensions The connecting dimensions for the supply and outlet fitting shall conform to the standards specified in Table 1, or the manufacturer shall either supply or recommend appropriate fittings. Table 1 — Standards for connecting dimensions Bidet Standard Pedestal bidet EN 35 Wall-hung bidet EN 36

4.2 Load stability When tested in accordance with 5.2, stainless steel and all wall-hung bidets shall withstand a force of

(4,00 ± 0,1) kN without showing any evidence of cracking and/or permanent deformation. 4.3 Cleanability When tested in accordance with 5.3, bidets shall have smooth and readily cleansed non-absorbent functional surfaces which are free from acute internal corners which would be difficult to clean, i.e. surfaces intended to or likely to come into contact with water during use. NOTE Functional surfaces do not include inlet and outlet holes, outlet grills etc. 4.4 Protection against overflowing 4.4.1 Bidets with overflow Every bidet shall be protected against overflowing. When tested in accordance with 5.4, the flow rate of the overflow shall not be less than the values given Table 2.

EN 14528:2007 (E) 6 Table 2 — Flow rates of overflow Overflow class Overflow rate l/s CL 25 0,25 CL 20 0,20 CL 15 0,15 CL 00 See 4.4.2

4.4.2 Bidets without overflow A bidet with a non-closable outlet or a floor gully may also be used as a protection against overflowing. In this case the bidet is related to class CL 00. 4.5 Durability Products conforming to the requirements of 4.2 to 4.4 are deemed to be durable. 5 Test methods 5.1 General All tests shall be carried out on the same sample bidet. Install the bidet to be tested on a firm flat horizontal or vertical surface as appropriate with a layer of mortar or other material to accommodate any unevenness. 5.2 Static load test  The bidet shall be fixed in accordance with the manufacturer's instruction onto a smooth surface with a layer of mortar or other facing material used for pointing between the back of the bidet and the smooth surface.  Gradually apply a force of (4,00 ± 0,1) kN on top of a wooden beam with a cross section of 100 mm × 100 mm positioned across the geometric centre of the bowl of the bidet parallel to the wall (see Figure 3). Allow the force to remain in position for a period of 1 h.  Record any failure to comply with 4.2. Any distortion at the points of direct loading shall not constitute a failure.
