EN 284:2006 (E) 4 Introduction Non stackable swap bodies of class C are intended for use in the international exchange of goods and for their transportation by road and rail, including interchange between these modes of transport, but not intended for the carriage by container ships. They are equipped with bottom corner fittings positioned in accordance with ISO 668.

EN 284:2006 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies basic requirements for non-stackable swap bodies of class C, having a gross mass of not more than 16 t. NOTE 1 "Swap bodies of class C" means that they are equipped with bottom fittings positioned according to the specification for 1 C (20') ISO containers (see ISO 668). NOTE 2 Stackable swap bodies class C are specified in CEN/TS 13853. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

a The International Union of Railways code for line categories UIC 596-6 shall be taken into consideration to assure transportation without hindrance on the main railways lines of continental Europe. b A maximum width of 2 600 mm is permitted for certain thermal bodies according to EC Directive No. 96/53/EC. c According to present road vehicle legislation in certain countries, the transport of two swap bodies of this size on a road train is only feasible when used together with a short coupling. 4 Strength requirements The strength requirements for non-stackable swap bodies are given in EN 283.

EN 284:2006 (E) 7 5 Design requirements 5.1 Bottom fittings 5.1.1 Swap bodies shall be equipped with four bottom fittings positioned in accordance with Figure 1 and Table 1. 5.1.2 The apertures and basic dimensions of the bottom fittings shall comply with Annex A. 5.2 Grappler arm lifting areas 5.2.1 Swap bodies shall be equipped with four grappler arm lifting areas located as shown in Figure 2. Requirements for the location and dimensions of these areas are given in Figures 3 and 4. 5.2.2 The total length of each grappler arm lifting area shall be in compliance with one of the following conditions: a) 850 mm as measured from the axis of the adjacent bottom fittings – additional end stop in swap body longitudinal direction are not required; b) 500 mm if fitted with additional end stop in swap body longitudinal direction on either side of that area. 5.2.3 The safety lip, which forms an integral part of the grappler arm lifting area, must have a minimum length of 500 mm, which ever of the two solutions above applied; i.e. if the total length of the grappler arm lifting area is 850 mm, the safety lip may be removed as shown in Figures 3d), 3e) and 4a), 4b), 4c) and 4d). 5.2.4 For box type swap bodies only the provision of a wear-resistant plate is recommended to protect the side walls. Such a plate shall not protrude beyond the outer plane of the grappler arm position, an offset of ≤ 2 mm is possible. For all other types (i.e. tarpaulin and curtainsiders) it is recommend that the curtain shall be reinforced in the grappler arm contact area. Dimensions in millimetres
