Water slides - Part 1: Safety requirements and test methods

This European Standard is applicable to all water slides installed in swimming pools of public use.
This Standard specifies general safety requirements for water slides in swimming pools of public use and specific requirements for defined types of water slides. These specific safety requirements are also applicable to undefined types as far as possible.
These requirements concern safety and the technical rules for design, calculation and testing.

Wasserrutschen - Teil 1: Sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren

Diese Europäische Norm gilt für alle in Schwimmbädern öffentlicher Nutzung eingebaute Wasserrutschen.
Diese Norm legt allgemeine Anforderungen an alle Typen von Wasserrutschen in öffentlichen Schwimm¬bädern und besondere Anforderungen an bestimmte Wasserrutschen Typen fest. Diese speziellen Sicher-heitsanforderungen sind, so weit wie möglich, auch auf nicht definierte Typen anzuwenden.
Diese Anforderungen betreffen die Sicherheit und die technischen Regeln für Konstruktion, Berechnung und Prüfung von Wasserrutschen.

Toboggans aquatiques - Partie 1: Exigences de sécurité et méthodes d'essai

La présente Norme européenne est applicable à tous les toboggans aquatiques installés dans les piscines à usage public.
La présente norme spécifie des exigences générales de sécurité pour les toboggans aquatiques dans les piscines à usage public et des exigences spécifiques pour des types définis de toboggans aquatiques. Autant que possible, ces exigences spécifiques de sécurité sont également applicables à des types non définis.
Ces exigences portent sur la sécurité et les règles techniques de conception, de calcul et d'essais.

Vodni tobogani - 1. del: Varnostne zahteve in preskusne metode

Ta evropski standard se uporablja za vse vodne tobogane, ki so nameščeni v javnih plavalnih bazenih. Ta standard določa splošne varnostne zahteve za vodne tobogane v javnih plavalnih bazenih in posebne zahteve za določene vrste vodnih toboganov. Te posebne varnostne zahteve se uporabljajo tudi za nerazvrščene vrste toboganov, če je to le mogoče.
Te zahteve se nanašajo na varnost in tehnična pravila za projektiranje, izračunavanje in preskušanje.

Introduction

The market for water slides is extremely wide and specific and still developing. It is impossible to define

an all-embracing safety specification, including dimensions and design requirements as required by a

standard, without limiting the design possibilities and preventing innovative and new but safe products.

This European Standard is intended to establish safety requirements and design guidance rules to serve

anyone involved with water slides, especially designers, manufacturers, operators and users, to ensure

safe and more efficient products. Its basic approach is the consciousness that the sliding action usually

implies for the users a higher risk level than using a pool. For certain aspects of design, manufacturing,

installation, operation and use only specific guidelines, without any technical specification, are given,

which should be taken into consideration and be fulfilled in order to ensure safety for operators and

users.
