European foreword

This document (EN 13598-2:2020) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 155

“Plastics piping systems and ducting systems”, the secretariat of which is held by NEN.

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 month November 2020, and conflicting

national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by November 2020.

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

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

rights.
This document supersedes EN 13598-2:2016.
Compared to the previous version, the main changes are listed below:

1) test methods have been updated to the latest EN ISO Standards where applicable;

2) the scope has been amended to clarify the products covered in this part and avoid confusion

with the scope of part 1;

3) terms and definitions have been updated and explanatory diagrams are now included;

4) material durability test requirements have been included for riser, cone and telescopic

adaptor components. The durability test method (Annex A) has also been updated;

5) the permitted use of non-virgin materials has been clarified and a new Annex D included,

with conditions and requirements for non-virgin materials;
6) fitness for purpose testing of factory fabricated components is now included;

7) the minimum marking requirement for components other than bases has been updated.

This document is part of a System Standard for plastics piping systems of a particular material for

a specified application.

System Standards are based on the results of the work being undertaken in ISO/TC 138 “Plastics

pipes, fittings and valves for the transport of fluids”, which is a Technical Committee of the

International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

They are supported by separate standards on test methods to which references are made

throughout the System Standard.

The System Standards are consistent with general standards on functional requirements and on

recommended practice for installation.

This document does not cover sewage pump chambers, valve chambers and similar products.

Separate standard(s) for manholes, inspection chambers and road gullies for storm water

systems are currently under investigation.

additional static calculation.
NOTE 4 Shallow chambers are specified in EN 13598-1 [1].

Manholes and inspection chambers complying with EN 13598-2 are made from a prescribed set

of components that are manufactured from unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U),

polypropylene (PP), polypropylene with mineral modifier (PP-MD) or polyethylene (PE) and

assembled together.

NOTE 5 The complete manhole or inspection chamber assembly can also include items which are not

covered by this document (for example near surface or surface components).

NOTE 6 Manholes and inspection chambers can be supplied with covers, frame covers and gratings

complying with the relevant part of EN 124 [2].

Manholes and inspection chambers complying with EN 13598-2 may be used for storm-water

systems.

Manhole and inspection chamber components can be manufactured by various methods e.g.

extrusion, injection moulding, rotational moulding, low-pressure moulding or fabricated.

NOTE 7 Manholes and inspection chambers can be site assembled from different components, but can

also be manufactured as a single unit.

NOTE 8 Manholes and inspection chambers can be subject to national regulations and / or local

provisions.

component ends at a distance of minimum 300 mm measured from the top of the main channel. Above

300 mm the section should be considered as a riser and tested accordingly.

Note 2 to entry: Bases having a spherical design may be used. National regulations can apply.

3.4
flow channel

open and accessible continuation of the sewer network in a manhole or inspection chamber to

allow directional changes maintaining the hydraulic performance of a sewer system

Note 1 to entry: The term flow profile is also used.
3.5
benching
sloped surface adjacent to the channel in a manhole or inspection chamber

3.6
riser

component which is connected onto a base and which defines the nominal size of the manhole or

inspection chamber

Note 1 to entry: The riser can be supplied either as one or more separate items, for site jointing to the

base, or integrated with the base.

Note 2 to entry: In case of a one-piece manhole or inspection chamber, for testing purposes the riser

component starts at a distance of minimum 300 mm measured from the top of the main channel. Below

300 mm the section should be considered as a base and tested accordingly.
3.7
telescopic adaptor

part of the assembly on top of the riser or cone that allows adjustment of the surface component

or near surface component

Note 1 to entry: Telescopic adaptors allow accommodation of settlement during lifetime and eliminate

the transmission of vehicular loading down the riser.
3.8
cone
adapter allowing change in diameter, close to ground level
3.9
near-surface component

component intended to spread vehicular loading directly to the soil and/or provide a seating for

the cover and its frame
3.10
assembly
items collectively forming a manhole or inspection chamber
Note 1 to entry: See typical examples in Figures 1 and 2.
3.11
invert

lowest point of the internal surface of the barrel of a pipe or channel at any cross section

3.12
maximum height of groundwater above invert

height of water column above the invert that the manhole or inspection chamber can withstand

during use
3.13
virgin material

material in a form such as granules or powder that has not been subjected to use or processing

other than that required for its manufacture and to which no reprocessed or recycled material

has been added
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST EN 13598-2:2020

3.14
own reprocessed material

material prepared from unused products, including trimmings from the production, that will be

reprocessed in a manufacturer’s plant after having been previously processed by the same

manufacturer
3.15
recycled material

material prepared from used thermoplastic products which have been cleaned and crushed or

ground
3.16
agreed specification

specification of the relevant material characteristics agreed between the supplier of the non-

virgin material and the manufacturer
